Record files

Record files are used to define a record that is defined in the DNS Made Easy system. For each record, a file is created with the username and password for the account where the record is stored, as well as the record ID number assigned by DNS Made Easy. The files can be named to whatever you want, but the best is to name them after the records they represent. After the first update is performed, the file will contain, beside the information you specified, the current IP number.

-- RECORD FILE START --
username
password
DNS Made Easy record ID
current updated IP address
-- RECORD FILE END --

Examples


To create the record file for www.smood.com, I would do the following:
# cat > /path/to/dme_update/records/www.smood.com
root@smood.com
my_secret_password
12345
<hit CTRL-d to save and close>
#

After the first invocation of dme_update, the record file for www.smood.com would look like this (provided the IP address of the server is 11.22.33.44)
# more /path/to/dme_update/records/www.smood.com
root@smood.com
my_secret_password
12345
11.22.33.44
