The automx_sql(5) man page specifies all parameters that control access from within automx to a SQL backend.


host (default: none)

Specifies one or more SQL servers separated by commas. Each server specification must provide database driver, username and password to access a database on a host as shown in the following example:

host = driver://username:[email protected]/database

IMPORTANT: Subsequent servers to the first serve only for fallback purposes, i.e. a server to the right will only be queried if the server left to it cannot be reached. If a server can be reached no further attempts will be made regardless if the query returned a result or not.

query (default: none)

Specifies the query that should be sent to the database specified with the host parameter: query = SELECT displayname, mailaddr FROM mail WHERE mailaddr='%s';

NOTE: See the section called “Macros and Variables” in automx.conf(5) for a list of available query macros.

result_attrs (default: none)

Specifies the attributes whose values should be used in an automx account setup: result_attrs = displayname, mailaddr
