AFPD(8)				    3.1.11			       AFPD(8)

NAME
       afpd - Apple Filing Protocol daemon

SYNOPSIS
       afpd [-d] [-F configfile]

       afpd -v | -V | -h

DESCRIPTION
       afpd provides an	Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) interface to the Unix file
       system. It is normally started at boot time by netatalk(8).

       @pkgconfdir@/afp.conf is	the configuration file used by afpd to
       determine the behavior and configuration	of a file server.

OPTIONS
       -d
	   Specifies that the daemon should not	fork.

       -v
	   Print version information and exit.

       -V
	   Print verbose information and exit.

       -h
	   Print help and exit.

       -F configfile
	   Specifies the configuration file to use. (Defaults to
	   @pkgconfdir@/afp.conf.)

SIGNALS
       To shut down a user's afpd process it is	recommended that SIGKILL (-9)
       NOT be used, except as a	last resort, as	this may leave the CNID
       database	in an inconsistent state. The safe way to terminate an afpd is
       to send it a SIGTERM (-15) signal and wait for it to die	on its own.

       SIGTERM and SIGUSR1 signals that	are sent to the	main afpd process are
       propagated to the children, so all will be affected.

       SIGTERM
	   Clean exit. Propagates from master to childs.

       SIGQUIT
	   Send	this to	the master afpd, it will exit leaving all children
	   running! Can	be used	to implement AFP service without downtime.

       SIGHUP
	   Sending a SIGHUP to afpd will cause it to reload its	configuration
	   files.

       SIGINT
	   Sending a SIGINT to a child afpd enables max_debug logging for this
	   process. The	log is sent to the file	/tmp/afpd.PID.XXXXXX. Sending
	   another SIGINT will revert to the original log settings.

       SIGUSR1
	   The afpd process will send the message "The server is going down
	   for maintenance." to	the client and shut itself down	in 5 minutes.
	   New connections are not allowed. If this is sent to a child afpd,
	   the other children are not affected.	However, the main process will
	   still exit, disabling all new connections.

       SIGUSR2
	   The afpd process will look in the message directory configured at
	   build time for a file named message.pid. For	each one found,	a the
	   contents will be sent as a message to the associated	AFP client.
	   The file is removed after the message is sent. This should only be
	   sent	to a child afpd.

FILES
