cherokee-admin — Runs Cherokee's administrative interface


cherokee-admin [-d<DIR>] [-p<PORT>] [-C<FILE>] [-b] [-x] [-u] [-t]


cherokee-admin runs the server for the administrative interface used to configure Cherokee. The interface itself will be available via your Web browser.


cherokee-admin accepts the following options:

-h, --help
Shows brief usage information
-V, --version
Show version and exit
-x, --debug
Print the backend errors to the terminal where it is executing. If omited, this debug information is lost.
-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.
-b[<IP>], --bind[=<IP>]
By default cherokee-admin 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.
-d<DIR>, --appdir=<DIR>
Uses a custom admin-interface path where the source files of cherokee-admin reside.
-p<NUM>, --port=<NUM>
Specifies an alternative port. By default, 9090.
-t, --internal-unix
By default, cherokee-admin 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.
-T<NUM>, --thread=<NUM>
Specify the number of threads that the program should use. Useful for memory/power constrained machines.
-C<PATH>, --target=PATH
Requests a configuration file different than the default /etc/cherokee/cherokee.conf to be used
