NAME

       fcron.conf - configuration file for fcron and fcrontab

DESCRIPTION

   ABSTRACT
       This  page  describes  the  syntax  used  for the configuration file of
       fcrontab(1), fcrondyn(1) and fcron(8).

       Blank lines, line beginning by a hash sign (#)  (which  are  considered
       comments),  leading  blanks  and  tabs  are  ignored.  Each  line  in a
       fcron.conf file is of the form

              name = value
       where the blanks  around  equal-sign  (=)  are  ignored  and  optional.
       Trailing blanks are also ignored.

       The  following  names  are  recognized  (default value in parentheses):
       "VALID VARIABLES IN A FCRON.CONF FILE"

       fcrontabs=directory  (/var/spool/fcron)
              Fcron spool directory.

       pidfile=file-path  (/var/run/fcron.pid)
              Location  of  fcron  pid  file  (needed  by  fcrontab  to   work
              properly).

       fifofile=file-path  (/var/run/fcron.fifo)
              Location  of  fcron fifo file (needed by fcrondyn to communicate
              with fcron).

       fcronallow=file-path  (/etc/fcron.allow)
              Location of fcron.allow file.

       fcrondeny=file-path  (/etc/fcron.deny)
              Location of fcron.deny file.

       shell=file-path  (/bin/sh)
              Location of default shell called by fcron when running a job.

       sendmail=file-path  (/usr/lib/sendmail)
              Location of mailer program called by fcron to send job output.

       editor=file-path  (/usr/bin/vi)
              Location of default editor used  when  invoking  "fcrontab  -e".
              File-paths  and  directories  are  complete  and  absolute (i.e.
              beginning by a "/").

       To run several instances of fcron simultaneously on  the  same  system,
       you  must  use  a  different configuration file for each instance. Each
       instance must have a different fcrontabs, pidfile and  fifofile.  Then,
       use  fcron(8)’s  command line option -c to select which config file (so
       which instance) you refer to.

FILES

       /etc/fcron.conf
              Configuration file for fcron, fcrontab  and  fcrondyn:  contains
              paths (spool dir, pid file) and default programs to use (editor,
              shell, etc). See fcron.conf(5) for more details.

       /etc/fcron.allow
              Users allowed to use fcrontab and fcrondyn (one name  per  line,
              special name "all" acts for everyone)

       /etc/fcron.deny
              Users  who  are  not  allowed to use fcrontab and fcrondyn (same
              format as allow file)

       /etc/pam.d/fcron (or /etc/pam.conf)
              PAM configuration file for fcron. Take a look at pam(8) for more
              details.

       If  you’re  learning  how to use fcron from scratch, I suggest that you
       read the HTML version of the documentation (if your are not reading  it
       right  now! :) ): the content is the same, but it is easier to navigate
       thanks to the hyperlinks.
