    Details

      Description

      The maxpasswd utility takes a path to directory or a .secrets file as an optional argument:

      $ maxpasswd --help
      usage: maxpasswd [-h|--help] [path] password
       
      This utility creates an encrypted password using a .secrets file
      that has earlier been created using maxkeys.
       
      -h, --help: Display this help.
       
      path : The directory where the .secrets file is located, or the path
             of the .secrets file itself. Note that the name of the file
             must be .secrets.
       
      If a path is not provided, the .secrets file is looked for in the
      directory /var/lib/maxscale.
