How to download and install the latest version of ddclient

DDclient is a perl script to update accounts for Dynamic DNS Service Provider. [1]


ddclient is available in testing/edge repository.

In order to use it, you need first to enable that repository by adding to /etc/apk/repositories:

# echo http://dl-cdn.alpinelinux.org/alpine/edge/testing

# apk update

# apk add ddclient


A sample configuration file is installed by default in /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf.sample.

Rename it as /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf and modify it according to your needs.

Then, start ddclient as usual:

# rc-service ddclient start

If you want/need, configure the service to start automatically on boot:

# rc-update add ddclient default
