Commands

info

sources

Prints a list of the information sources

kill-source

Kill a remote information source, specified by its reported ID

logrotate

Rotates a local (*and only local*) log file specified by PATH.

trace

Manipulates the tracing mechanism. TRACE should be the string that specifies the modules to be traced, and Cherokee must have been compiled with the --enable-trace option for this to work. Everything traceable with CHEROKEE_TRACE can also be traced this way.

Parameters

URL

Required before any command. This is the URL where the administration interface can be found.  This target must be defined previously in herokee-admin enabling a "Remote Administration" type handler (Virtual Servers->Behaviour->Add new rule, and then Handler->"Remote Administration"). The deffinition of a security mechanism is highly encouraged.

-h, --help

Shows brief usage information

-V, --version

Prints version and exits

Options

cherokee-tweak accepts the following options:
-u<STRING>, --user=<STRING>
