NAME

       ctl_cyrusdb - Cyrus IMAP documentation

       Perform administrative operations directly on Cyrus IMAP databases.

SYNOPSIS

       ctl_cyrusdb [ -C config-file ] -c
       ctl_cyrusdb [ -C config-file ] -r [ -x ]

DESCRIPTION

       ctl_cyrusdb  is  used  to  perform  various  administrative  operations  on the Cyrus IMAP
       databases.

       ctl_cyrusdb reads its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file unless specified
       otherwise  by  -C.   The  configdirectory option in imapd.conf(5) is used to determine the
       default location of the Cyrus databases.

OPTIONS

       -C config-file
              Use  the  specified  configuration  file  config-file  rather  than   the   default
              imapd.conf(5).

       -r     Recover the database after an application or system failure. Also performs database
              cleanups like removing mailbox reservations (and the associated mailbox files).

              All mailbox files are also checked  to  make  sure  the  file  format  matches  the
              configured  database  type  in  imapd.conf.   If  not,  the  file  is automatically
              converted using the same logic as cvt_cyrusdb.

       -x     Used with -r to only recover the database, and prevent any cleanup.

       -c     Checkpoint and archive (a copy of) the database.

              Changes to the database which are part of the committed transactions are written to
              disk.

              The archive is created via a hot backup, and inactive log files are removed.

EXAMPLES

       ctl_cyrusdb -r
          Recover  databases,  performing cleanup.  This is commonly used in the START section of
          cyrus.conf(5).

       ctl_cyrusdb -x -r
          Recover database only.

       ctl_cyrusdb -c
          Checkpoint databases.  Commonly used in the EVENTS section of cyrus.conf(5).

FILES
