MOTD(5)                             Linux Programmer's Manual                             MOTD(5)

NAME
       motd - message of the day

DESCRIPTION
       The  contents  of /etc/motd are displayed by pam_motd(8) after a successful login but just
       before it executes the login shell.

       The abbreviation "motd" stands for "message of the day", and this file has been traditionā€
       ally used for exactly that (it requires much less disk space than mail to all users).

       On  Debian  GNU/Linux, dynamic content configured at /etc/pam.d/login is also displayed by
       pam_exec.

FILES
       /etc/motd
       /etc/pam.d/login

SEE ALSO
       login(1), issue(5), pam_motd(8)
