I have those errors too, and I saw those were occurring every 3 hours from midnight, from /var/log/message:

Nov 11 03:00:00 server ddclient[631]: WARNING: caught SIGTERM; exiting

Nov 11 06:00:01 server ddclient[1090]: WARNING: caught SIGTERM; exiting

Nov 11 09:00:02 server ddclient[2299]: WARNING: caught SIGTERM; exiting

Nov 11 12:00:01 server ddclient[3206]: WARNING: caught SIGTERM; exiting

Nov 11 15:00:01 server ddclient[4096]: WARNING: caught SIGTERM; exiting

ddclient updated the record several times between 12 and 15 with no problems.

What could cause ddclient to fail every 3 hours?

I got ddclient 3.6.4 with perl 5.8.5 on FreeBSD 5.3 STABLE.

ddclient-cvs with postscript by Larry Hendric
Larry Hendrickson posted a patch for running a postscript after updating the dynamic dns service. The only thing you need to add to the configuration is:
postscript=/path/to/script
The patch is applied to the cvs-version on sf.net. It's not tested yet but the source looks cool to me.
Btw, Larry if you're out there, please contact me. When I replied to you message I got "domain not found"...

ddclient is moved to sourceforge.
Maybe you've noticed it, maybe you didn't but ddclient is moved to sf.net. You can find the homepage (http://ddclient.sourceforge.net) and the projectpage (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ddclient/) there.

Your wish has become true. :-)

Just give me a little time...

Is this project dead?
I have been using ddclient 3.6.3 successfully on Slackware 10.0. I am wondering if this project is dead. I notice that the "contact developer" link is dead. If it is dead, can anyone that wants to just pick up the project? I don't know any PERL, but I have been working on a Slackware package. I just don't know what to do with it if the project is dead.

I think this is a great script, and I'd hate to see it die.

Continually broken URL
Is it just me, or has the home page for ddclient been

broken almost continuously over the last year or so? It

keeps changing fwict, and the current one certainly doesn't

work....

Is there ever going to be a real, permanent home page for

ddclient?

Re: cache file not working ver 3.6.3: Slackware 9.1
As it turns out If, “ddclient.conf” is not fully configured for your system and the dynamic DNS service provider, “ddclient” will likely malfunction by not creating the cache file or reporting some other type of error. Also, ensure that any line in the “ddclient.conf” file ending with “\” does not have white space after it, as that will also cause an error.
