DESCRIPTIONcherokee is an extremely fast, flexible and embeddable web server.
OPTIONSThis command will launch the Cherokee webserver. It accepts the following options:
- -h, --help
- Prints a brief help message and terminates execution
- -V, --version
- Prints Cherokee's version and terminates execution
- -t, --test
- Perform a sanity check on the configuration file. The server will not run.
- -d, --detach
- Launches the server as a background process (default behaviour is to stay attached to the controlling terminal).
- -C, --config=PATH
- Specifies an alternative path for the configuration file to use instead of the default cherokee.conf
- -p, --port=PORT
- TCP port number to which the server will listen.
- -r, --documentroot=PATH
- Launches a server exposing statically the specified directory. When launched with -r, the configuration file is ignored, and the Cherokee instance runs with its default values.
- -i, --print
- Print server technical information.
SIGNALSThe following signals are supported by Cherokee:
- SIGHUP, Restarts the server gracefully
- SIGUSR1, Restarts the server closing all the opened connections
- SIGUSR2, Reopens the log files
- SIGTERM, Exits
