The db-owner configuration variable

The name of the Postgres user that owns the database and is used to perform privileged operations (such as deleting mail). This is normally configured in aoxsuper.conf, not archiveopteryx.conf.

(Archiveopteryx verifies that it cannot delete mail when it starts up.)

db-owner is a string. Its default value is compilation-dependent, usually aoxuser.

You can see its current value with the command aox show cf db-owner.

String syntax

Strings may be written as a single unquoted word or quoted with either single or double quotes, as shown in these three examples:

db-password = single.word
db-password = "rock'n'roll" # a 12-character password
db-password = 'two words, quoted' # a 17-character one

Only single-line strings can be used. Single-word strings may contain the characters a-z, A-Z, 0-9, dot, hyphen and slash.

Spaces are allowed at the start of the line, before and after '=', and after the value. Comments extend from '#' to the end of the line.
