       aideinit - create a new AIDE database


       aideinit [options]


       aideinit  creates  a new AIDE database. It will initialize an AIDE database in the default
       database_out location. It will then prompt you to replace your existing AIDE database.  In
       most cases you will want to check for any problems before doing this.

       aideinit  attempts  to  automatically  detect  the  correct locations of your database and
       database_out files based on your aide.conf settings. These settings may be  overridden  on
       the command line, as may the prompts.

              Overwrite database_out file

       -f, --force
              Force overwrite of database with new database
