YDNS Bash Updater Script
This repository contains the bash updater script which can be used on *NIX-like environments to update dynamic hosts. It is recommended to use this script with cronjob to run periodically (preferrably every 15 minutes).
The script uses the YDNS API v1 (dyn-compatible).
First, ensure that your host has curl installed.
- Check out the source code (updater.sh)
- Place it into desired place and make it executable (
chmod +x updater.sh)
- Edit the script and update the user and host information to fit your configuration
- Run the script (either by single call or set up a cronjob to run it periodically)
To run this script every 15 minutes using
crontab, add the following line to your crontab list:
*/15 * * * * /path/to/script/updater.sh > /dev/null
Although this works on most all implementations of
crontab, for more portability use this instead:
0,15,30,45 * * * * /path/to/script/updater.sh > /dev/null
NOTE: To gain access to the crontab list to edit and add entries, execute
crontab -e at the terminal
