Description

cherokee-tweak connects to a running cherokee instance, either local or remote, and requests it to perform one of several actions.

Commands

info
Prints info about the server status
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>
Specifies the user name with which to identify to the server
-p<STRING>, --password=<STRING>
