NAME

       /etc/deluser.conf - configuration file for deluser(8) and delgroup(8).

DESCRIPTION

       The  file /etc/deluser.conf contains defaults for the programs deluser(8) and delgroup(8).
       Each option takes the form option = value.  Double or single quotes are allowed around the
       value.  Comment lines must have a hash sign (#) at the beginning of the line.

       deluser(8)  and  delgroup(8) also read /etc/adduser.conf, see adduser.conf(8); settings in
       deluser.conf may overwrite settings made in adduser.conf.

       The valid configuration options are:

       REMOVE_HOME
              Removes the home directory and mail spool of the user to be removed.  Value may  be
              0 (don't delete) or 1 (do delete).

       REMOVE_ALL_FILES
              Removes all files on the system owned by the user to be removed.  If this option is
              activated REMOVE_HOME has no effect. Values may be 0 or 1.

       BACKUP If REMOVE_HOME or REMOVE_ALL_FILES is activated all files are backuped before  they
              are  removed. The backup file that is created defaults to username.tar(.gz|.bz2) in
              the directory specified by the BACKUP_TO option. The compression method  is  chosen
              to the best that is available.  Values may be 0 or 1.

       BACKUP_TO
              If BACKUP is activated, BACKUP_TO specifies the directory the backup is written to.
              Default is the current directory.

       NO_DEL_PATHS
              A list of regular expressions, space separated. All files to be deleted  in  course
              of  deleting home directories or deleting files owned by the user to be deleted are
              checked against each of these regular expressions. If a match is detected, the file
              is not deleted. Defaults to a list of system directories, leaving only /home.

              In  other  words: By default only files below /home belonging to that specific user
              are going to be deleted.

       ONLY_IF_EMPTY
              Only delete a group if there are no user who belong to this group. Defaults to 0.

       EXCLUDE_FSTYPES
              A regular expression which describes all file systems which should be excluded when
              looking    for    files    of    a    user    to    be    deleted.    Defaults   to
              "(proc|sysfs|usbfs|devpts|tmpfs|afs)".
