NAME

borg-config − get, set, and delete values in a repository or cache config file

SYNOPSIS

borg [common options] config [options] [REPOSITORY] [NAME] [VALUE]

DESCRIPTION

This command gets and sets options in a local repository or cache config file. For security reasons, this command only works on local repositories.

To delete a config value entirely, use −−delete. To list the values of the configuration file or the default values, use −−list. To get and existing key, pass only the key name. To set a key, pass both the key name and the new value. Keys can be specified in the format "section.name" or simply "name"; the section will default to "repository" and "cache" for the repo and cache configs, respectively.

By default, borg config manipulates the repository config file. Using −−cache edits the repository cache's config file instead.

OPTIONS

See borg−common(1) for common options of Borg commands.

EXAMPLES

NOTE:

The repository & cache config files are some of the only directly manipulable parts of a repository that aren't versioned or backed up, so be careful when making changes!

# find cache directory
$ cd ~/.cache/borg/$(borg config /path/to/repo id)

# reserve some space
$ borg config /path/to/repo additional_free_space 2G


# make a repo append−only
$ borg config /path/to/repo append_only 1
