       mydns  [-b,  --background]  [-c,	 --conf=filename]  [-d,	 --debug] [-D,
       --database=dbname] [-h,	--host=hostname]  [-p,	--password[=password]]

DESCRIPTION
       mydns is	a SQL-based DNS	server.

OPTIONS
       -b, --background
	      Run in the background, as	a daemon.

       -c, --conf=filename
	      Read  configuration  from	 filename  instead  of	 the   default
	      (/usr/local/etc/mydns.conf).  Consult mydns.conf(5) for informa-
	      tion about configuring mydns.

       -d, --debug
	      Output huge amounts of diagnostic	text while running.  This  op-
	      tion  is	only  available	if MyDNS was configured	with the --en-
	      able-debug option.

       -D, --database=dbname
	      Use the database called dbname.

       -h, --host=hostname
	      Connect to database server at hostname.

       -p, --pass=password
	      Supply password when connecting to the database server.  If  the
	      password argument	is omitted, it will be prompted	on the tty.

       -u, --user=username
	      Use username when	connecting to the database server.

       -v, --verbose
	      Enable verbose output while running.

       --create-tables
	      Write  CREATE  TABLE statements suitable for creating the	tables
	      used by mydns to the standard output and exit.

       --dump-config
	      Read the current configuration (if any).	Dump all possible con-
	      figuration  options  to the standard output, with	current	values
	      filled in.  For options not presently configured,	 the  internal
	      defaults will be used.  Output is	in mydns.conf format, which is
	      handy for	creating a mydns.conf template.

       --debug-<module>[=_debug-level_
	      Switch on	debug for a particular module and set the debug	 level
	      if given.

       --help Display program help and exit.

       --version
	      Output version number and	exit.

FILES
       /usr/local/etc/mydns.conf
	      The   default   location	 of   the  configuration  file.	  (See
	      mydns.conf(5))
