Description

Referring to this page —> http://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppetdb/0.9/configure.html#the-puppetdb-configuration-files, it mentions that you can specify a conf.d style directory full of INI files, but doesn’t tell you where to expect to FIND them on the system. It was a bit confusing to me.

I agree it is confusing on where to find the puppetdb configuration files especially since the section above references /etc/default/puppetdb.

What’s the right verbage here and I’ll push a fix?

#4 Updated by Chris Price over 1 year ago

I believe that this one was addressed via this pull req:

https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppetdb/pull/175

It does explicitly mention the default config directories now.

  • Status changed from Needs More Information to Closed

Looking at the linked URL in the original ticket, I believe that this problem has already been fixed. Here’s content from that page:

If you’ve installed puppetdb from a package, the default is to use the conf.d style, directory-based approach. The default config directory is /etc/puppetdb/conf.d (or /etc/puppetlabs/puppetdb/conf.d for Puppet Enterprise installations). If you’re running from source you may use the “-c” command-line argument to specify your config file or directory.
