== link:index.html[Index] -> link:other.html[Other information] -> link:other_bundle.html[Man pages]
Last checked: Cherokee 1.0.21b
Man pages: cherokee-worker
This executable is meant to be invoked only by the main
link:other_bundle_cherokee.html[cherokee] instance. Executing it directly is
a discouraged practice.
This is the full information provided by the manpage:
`cherokee-worker` - Cherokee Web Server internal worker
`cherokee-worker` [options]
`cherokee-worker` is a part of Cherokee, an extremely fast, flexible and
embeddable web server. This executable is meant to be invoked only by
`cherokee`. Executing it directly is a discouraged practice.
This binary implements the Cherokee Web Server functionality, although
it misses a few security features implemented on the main executable,
Executing it alone could be only useful for debugging purposes.
It can be launched in several ways as shown in the section
link:basics_running_cherokee.html[Running Cherokee]. Unless specified
otherwise, `cherokee-worker` will try to run with the configuration
present in your default link:dev_cherokee.conf.html[cherokee.conf]
file. The accepted parameters are those of the
link:other_bundle_cherokee.html[cherokee] binary.
To illustrate the usefulness of such options take the following
$ cherokee-worker -p 8080 -r `pwd`
Since both absolute and relative paths are accepted, it is equivalent to:
$ cherokee-worker -p 8080 -r .
This would allow any non-privileged user to statically share the
contents of the current directory. It's a great way to share files in a
local network whenever you are in a hurry. Remember that in Unix
systems only processes launched by the superuser have privileges to
be hooked to the lower 1024 ports of the system.
