AresMUSH
A New Breed of MUSH Server

Configuring the Database

Your database was set up initially during the game installation. If for some reason your database server changes, or you need to reset the password, you’ll need to update the configuration.

To configure the database:

  1. Select Admin -> Setup
  2. Editdatabase.yml to edit the database URL -or- secrets.yml to edit the password.
  3. Shut down and restart the game. (See the tutorials at aresmush.com if you need help doing this.)

Important! Database configuration changes will not take effect until the game is restarted.

url

This is the URL and port number to access the database.

path

Redis stores its data in a file on disk, usually named dumb.rdb. This is the path to that file. In the default installation, it’s /var/lib/redis/dump.rdb.

password

In the secrets.yml configuration is the database password.
