.TH cherokee-admin 8 "February 16, 2011"
cherokee-admin - Runs Cherokee's administrative interface
.B cherokee-admin
[\-d<DIR>] [\-p<PORT>] [\-C<FILE>] [\-b] [\-x] [\-u] [\-t]
\fIcherokee-admin\fP runs the server for the administrative interface
used to configure Cherokee. The interface itself will be available via
your Web browser.
\fIcherokee-admin\fP accepts the following options:
.TP 8
.B \-h, --help
Shows brief usage information
.TP 8
.B \-V, --version
Show version and exit
.TP 8
.B \-x, --debug
Print the backend errors to the terminal where it is executing. If
omited, this debug information is lost.
.TP 8
.B \-u, --unsecure
Allows accessing cherokee-admin's interface without requiring the user
to authenticate. This disables a security measure and is only meant to
ease the development process. The usage of this parameter is strongly
discouraged for regular users.
.TP 8
.B \-b[<IP>], --bind[=<IP>]
By default \fIcherokee-admin\fP binds only to (localhost), which
means you can only connect to it from the same system. With this parameter
you can specify the network address to listen to. If no IP is provided,
it will bind to all interfaces.
.TP 8
.B \-d<DIR>, --appdir=<DIR>
Uses a custom admin-interface path where the source files of
\fIcherokee-admin\fP reside.
.TP 8
.B \-p<NUM>, --port=<NUM>
Specifies an alternative port. By default, 9090.
.TP 8
.B \-t, --internal-unix
By default, \fIcherokee-admin\fP uses TCP for internal
communications. This parameter specifies that a Unix domain socket
should be used instead. The default behavior is the safest one, so
this parameter should rarely by used.
.TP 8
.B \-T<NUM>, --thread=<NUM>
Specify the number of threads that the program should use. Useful for
memory/power constrained machines.
.TP 8
.B \-C<PATH>, --target=PATH
Requests a configuration file different than the default
/etc/cherokee/cherokee.conf to be used
This program is a part of the Cherokee web server, \&\fIcherokee\fR\|(1)
