In the default configuration, the *aide --init* command checks just a set of directories and files defined in the `/etc/aide.conf` file. To include additional directories or files in the AIDE database, and to change their watched parameters, edit `/etc/aide.conf` accordingly.
To start using the database, remove the `.new` substring from the initial database file name:
$ sudo mv /var/lib/aide/aide.db.new.gz /var/lib/aide/aide.db.gz
To change the location of the *AIDE* database, edit the `/etc/aide.conf` file and modify the `DBDIR` value. For additional security, store the database, configuration, and the `/usr/sbin/aide` binary file in a secure location such as a read-only media.
To avoid SELinux denials after the AIDE database location change, update your SELinux policy accordingly. See the link:https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/7/html/SELinux_Users_and_Administrators_Guide/[SELinux User's and Administrator's Guide] for more information.
Performing Integrity Checks
To initiate a manual check:
$ sudo aide --check
Start timestamp: 2018-07-11 12:41:20 +0200 (AIDE 0.16)
AIDE found differences between database and filesystem!!
Total number of entries: 150667
Added entries: 1
Removed entries: 0
Changed entries: 2
Added entries:

[output truncated]
At a minimum, *AIDE* should be configured to run a weekly scan. At most, *AIDE* should be run daily. For example, to schedule a daily execution of AIDE at _04:05_ a.m. using the *cron* command, see the xref:f{MAJOROSVER}@fedora:system-administrators-guide:monitoring-and-automation/Automating_System_Tasks.adoc[Automating System Tasks] chapter in the System Administrator's Guide.
Add the following line to the `/etc/crontab` file:
05 4 * * * root /usr/sbin/aide --check
Updating an *AIDE* Database
After verifying the changes of your system such as, package updates or configuration files adjustments, update your baseline *AIDE* database:
$ sudo aide --update
