Reserving accounts to avoid conflicts with user, group, or i-bay names

If your application creates a new directory within your web site e.g., you should make sure the name isn't also used for an information bay, since that would create a conflict. Simply reserve the name by creating a urlaccount. This can be done by creating a defaults file:

cd /etc/e-smith/db/accounts/defaults/

mkdir magicstuff
cd magicstuff

echo url >type

If you package the file in your RPM, the account will be created automatically. To test your change before packaging, you'll need to tell the SME Server to reconfigure the databases:


db accounts show magicstuff
