PG_CONFTOOL(1) Debian PostgreSQL infrastructure PG_CONFTOOL(1)

NAME

pg_conftool - read and edit PostgreSQL cluster configuration files

SYNOPSIS

pg_conftool [options] [version cluster] [configfile] command

DESCRIPTION

pg_conftool allows to show and set parameters in PostgreSQL configuration files.

If version cluster is omitted, it defaults to the default cluster (see user_clusters(5) and postgresqlrc(5)). If configfile is omitted, it defaults to postgresql.conf. configfile can also be a path, in which case version cluster is ignored.

OPTIONS

-b, --boolean
Format boolean value as on or off (not for "show all").
-s, --short
Show only the value (instead of key = value pair).
-v, --verbose
Verbose output.
--help
Print help.

COMMANDS

show parameter|all
Show a parameter, or all present in this config file.
set parameter value
Set or update a parameter.
remove parameter
Remove (comment out) a parameter from a config file.
edit
Open the config file in an editor. Unless $EDITOR is set, vi is used.
