Make the CA file configurable

parent e8386bd1
......@@ -114,6 +114,12 @@ The configuration file uses a simple format of the form
from 0 to 3. 0 is debug, 1 is info, 2 is warning, 3 is error. The
default is 0, but a more practical value for production use is 1.
Specifies which file should be use as the list of trusted CA when
negociating a TLS session. By default this value is unset and biboumi
tries a list of well-known paths.
The configuration can be re-read at runtime (you can for example change the
log level without having to restart biboumi) by sending SIGUSR1 or SIGUSR2
(see kill(1)) to the process.
