The jail-user configuration variable

jail-user is the user name under which the servers run, and is aox by default. On startup, the servers change UID to this user. This user should not have read or write access to the jail directory.

jail-user is a string. Its default value is compilation-dependent, usually aox.

You can see its current value with the command aox show cf jail-user.

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.
