NAME

       wesnothd - Battle for Wesnoth multiplayer network daemon

SYNOPSIS

       wesnothd [-dv] [-c path] [-p port] [-t number] [-T number]
       wesnothd -V

DESCRIPTION

       Manages        Battle        for        Wesnoth        multiplayer        games.       See
       http://www.wesnoth.org/wiki/ServerAdministration on what commands the server  accepts  via
       the wesnoth client (/query ...) or the fifo.

OPTIONS

       -c path, --config path
              tells  wesnothd where to find the config file to use. See the section SERVER CONFIG
              below for the syntax. You can reload the config with sending SIGHUP to  the  server
              process.

       -d, --daemon
              runs wesnothd as a daemon.

       -h, --help
              tells you what the command line options do.

       --log-level=domain1,domain2,...
              sets  the  severity  level  of  the  log domains.  all can be used to match any log
              domain. Available levels: error, warning, info, debug.  By default the error  level
              is used and the info level for the server domain.

       -p port, --port port
              binds the server to the specified port. If no port is specified, port 15000 will be
              used.

       -t number, --threads number
              sets the maximum number of waiting worker threads for network I/O  to  n  (default:
              5, max: 30).

       -T number, --max-threads number
              sets  the maximum number of worker threads that will be created.  If set to 0 there
              will be no limit (default: 0).

       -V, --version
              shows version number and exits.

       -v, --verbose
              turns debug logging on.

SERVER CONFIG

   The general syntax is:
       [tag]

              key="value"

              key="value,value,..."

       [/tag]

   Global keys:
       allow_remote_shutdown
              If set to no (default), shut_down and restart requests are ignored unless they come
              from  the  fifo.   Set  it  to  yes  to  allow  remote  shutdown via a /query by an
              administrator.

       ban_save_file
              Full or relative path to a (gzip compressed) file that  the  server  can  read  and
              write.  Bans will be saved to this file and read again on server start.

       compress_stored_rooms
              Determines whether the rooms file should be read and written to in compressed form.
              Defaults to yes.

       connections_allowed
              The number of allowed connections from the same IP. 0 means infinite. (default: 5)

       disallow_names
              Names/nicks that are not accepted by the server. * and ? from wildcard patterns are
              supported.  See  glob(7)   for  more  details.   Default values (used if nothing is
              specified) are: *admin*,*admln*,*server*,ai,ai?,computer,human,network,player.

       fifo_path
              The path to the fifo you can echo server commands into (same  as  /query  ...  from
              wesnoth).    If   not   specified  defaults  to  the  compile-time  path  (default:
              /var/run/socket/wesnothd/socket).

       max_messages
              The number of allowed messages in messages_time_period. (default: 4)

       messages_time_period
              The time period (in seconds) message flooding is detected in. (default: 10 seconds)

       motd   The message of the day.

       new_room_policy
              Determines who can create new rooms on the server. Available values  are  everyone,
              registered,  admin  and  nobody,  and give the permission respectively to everyone,
              registered users, admin users or disables  new  room  creation.  Default  value  is
              everyone.

       passwd The password used to gain admin privileges (via /query admin password).

       replay_save_path
              The  directory where the server stores game replays. (Don't forget the trailing /!)
              Defaults to `' which means the directory wesnothd was started in.

       restart_command
              The command that the server uses to start a new  server  process  via  the  restart
              command. (Can only be issued via the fifo. See the allow_remote_shutdown setting.)

       room_save_file
              Path  to  a  file where the room info should be stored. This file is read on server
              startup and written to later. If empty or not set, rooms are  not  loaded  and  not
              saved.

       save_replays
              Defines  whether  the  server  will  automatically save replays of games. (default:
              false)

       versions_accepted
              A comma separated list of version strings to be accepted by the  server.  *  and  ?
              from  wildcard  patterns  are  supported.   (defaults  to the corresponding wesnoth
              version)
              Example: versions_accepted="*" accepts any version string.

       user_handler
              The name of the user handler to use. Currently available user  handlers  are  forum
              (to connect wesnothd to a phpbb forum database) and sample (a sample implementation
              of the user handler interface, if you use this on anything real  you  are  insane).
              The default value is forum. You must also add a [user_handler] section, see below.

   Global tags:
       [redirect] A tag to specify a server to redirect certain client versions to.

              host   The address of the server to redirect to.

              port   The port to connect to.

              version
                     A  comma  separated  list  of  versions to redirect. Behaves the same way as
                     versions_accepted in regard to wildcard patterns.

       [ban_time] A tag to define convenient keywords for temporary ban time lengths.

              name   The name used to reference the ban time.

              time   The time length definition.  The format is: %d[%s[%d%s[...]]] where %s is  s
                     (seconds),  m (minutes), h (hours), D (days), M (months) or Y (years) and %d
                     is a number.  If  no  time  modifier  is  given  minutes  (m)  are  assumed.
                     Example:  time="1D12h30m"  results  in  a ban time of 1 day, 12 hours and 30
                     minutes.

       [proxy] A tag to tell the server to act as a proxy  and  forward  the  connected  client's
       requests to the specified server.  Accepts the same keys as [redirect].

       [user_handler]  Configures  the  user handler. Available keys vary depending on which user
       handler is set with the user_handler key. If no [user_handler] section is present  in  the
       configuration the server will run without any nick registration service.

              db_host
                     (for user_handler=forum) The hostname of the database server

              db_name
                     (for user_handler=forum) The name of the database

              db_user
                     (for  user_handler=forum)  The  name of the user under which to log into the
                     database

              db_password
                     (for user_handler=forum) This user's password

              db_users_table
                     (for user_handler=forum) The name of the table in which  your  phpbb  forums
                     saves  its  user  data.  Most likely this will be <table-prefix>_users (e.g.
                     phpbb3_users).

              db_extra_table
                     (for user_handler=forum) The name of the table in which wesnothd  will  save
                     its own data about users. You will have to create this table manually, e.g.:
                     CREATE TABLE <table-name>(username VARCHAR(255) PRIMARY KEY,  user_lastvisit
                     INT  UNSIGNED  NOT  NULL  DEFAULT  0,  user_is_moderator TINYINT(4) NOT NULL
                     DEFAULT 0);

              user_expiration
                     (for user_handler=sample) The time after which a registered nick expires (in
                     days).

       [mail]  Configures  an SMTP server through which the user handler can send mail. Currently
       only used by the sample user handler.

              server The hostname of the mail server

              username
                     The user name under which to log into the mail server.

              password
                     This user's password.

              from_address
                     The reply-to address of you mail.

              mail_port
                     The port on which your mail server is running. Default is 25.

EXIT STATUS

       Normal exit status is 0 when the server  was  properly  shutdown.  An  exit  status  of  2
       indicates an error with the command line options.
