mkdb(8)			GNATS Admininstration Utilities		       mkdb(8)

NAME
       mkdb - create a new GNATS database

SYNOPSIS
       mkdb databasename

DESCRIPTION
       Looks  up  databasename in the GNATS databases file and creates a data-
       base in the location specified there.  mkdb creates the	directory  and
       populates  it  with  a  set  of	default	files copied from the /usr/lo-
       cal/share/gnats/defaults	directory.

       Note the	implications of	this: an entry in databases  must  be  created
       before mkdb is run.

       The command should be run as the	GNATS user, by default gnats.

OPTIONS
       databasename
	      Specifies	the name of the	database to be created.
