aoxsuper.conf - configuration file for Archiveopteryx.
The aoxsuper.conf file contains a few configuration settings for Archiveopteryx. It is read by aox(8) at startup. Syntax errors, unknown variables, and other errors are logged on stderr.
aoxsuper.conf is usually created at installation time, by running /usr/local/archiveopteryx/lib/installer.
There is only one required variable, namely db-owner-password.
Anyone who can read aoxsuper.conf can see the database owner password, and use this password to read all mail, or even to damage or destroy the mail database.
By default, aoxsuper.conf is readable only by root.
The format is as for archiveopteryx.conf(5):
name = value # comment
The name of the Postgres user that owns the database and is used to perform privileged operations (such as deleting mail). The default is aoxsuper.
The database password used for the db-owner. The default is an empty string.
Unless a password is specified, the Archiveopteryx installer sets up a randomly-chosen password and writes it to the configuration file.
