       wwwoffle.options - configuration options for wwwoffle


       /etc/wwwoffle/wwwoffle.options  contains  a set of flags that determine
       some of the behavior of the wwwoffle daemon, which is run every time an
       internet  connection  comes  up.   It  is preferable to configure these
       settings using debconf via dpkg-reconfigure wwwoffle

       Available options are:

       ppp    This will enable wwwoffle to go online and offline (or  autodial
              in  case  of a dial-on-demand connection) automatically when the
              connection goes up and down.  Comment this  option  out  if  you
              don’t  use  wwwoffle  over a dialup connection or you don’t want
              the scripts to manipulate the mode; this forces the online  mode
              always  (in  which  case the fetch option has no effect, see the
              fetch option below).

       fetch  This will cause the wwwoffle daemon to get all  the  pages  that
              were   marked   for   download  immediately  when  the  internet
              connection comes up. Some people  do  not  like  this  behaviour
              since  they  often go online just for a quick check for new mail
              and want to fetch big web pages manually once a day.

       htdig  This will cause htdig to maintain  a  searchable  index  of  the
              pages cached by wwwoffle.  This used to be the default, but if a
              system has htdig installed for  its  own  web  pages,  it  would
              automatically  also  be  used for wwwoffle, which might not have
              been the intention.

              (Not settable via debconf)
              This  prevents  the  startup  script  /etc/init.d/wwwoffle  from
              checking  wwwoffle.conf  for URL specifications that end in ’/’.
              If such an URL is detected, a verbose warning is given that such
              a specification will only match the ’/’ URL on the host, and not
              the entire host as you might expect (add  ’*’  to  the  end  for
              that).   However,  perhaps you really want such a specification;
              in   that   case,   add   a    line    with    nocheckconf    to
              /etc/wwwoffle/wwwoffle.options to prevent the warning.

              (Not settable via debconf)
              This  prevents  the daily cron job /etc/cron.daily/wwwoffle from
              purging old content from the cache. Note that this means there’s
              no  automatic  cleanup,  and  hence the system will fill up over


       wwwoffle(1), wwwoffle.conf(5), wwwoffled(8), htdig(8)
