tmpfiles.d Configuration Files

These .conf files define filesystem operations that are needed to setup paths. This is commonly creating specific files and directories with specific permissions and ownership prior to running a system daemon. For example an upstart job with:

pre-start script
  mkdir -p /run/dbus
  chown messagebus:messagebus /run/dbus
  mkdir -p /var/lib/dbus
end script

Can be replaced with a tmpfiles.d file with:

d /run/dbus 0755 messagebus messagebus
d /var/lib/dbus/ 0755 root root

This file should have the .conf extension and be installed to /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d For more information about the conf format see the upstream documentation.
