Sample Config Files
Many system daemons that come bundled in OpenBSD base have sample configuration files that you can reference in /etc/examples/. For example, suppose you want to configure a web server. First, start with:
$ doas cp /etc/examples/httpd.conf /etc/httpd.conf
Then work using that configuration file as a template.
Take a look at any README files in /usr/local/share/doc/pkg-readmes/ . Often there are special configuration instructions to get a package to work properly on OpenBSD.
