Linux:How to use aide to check file system integrity

Installing Aide:

Yum install aide

Creating the database:

aide -c /etc/aide.conf –i
Output : AIDE database at /var/lib/aide/ initialized.
This process creates a new file, in /var/lib/aide/.You must rename this file to aide.db.gz, which is the correct name for the AIDE database.

Testing Aide:

aide -c /etc/aide.conf –C
