cherokee-admin(1) Runs Cherokee's administrative interface


cherokee-admin [-d DIR] [-p PORT] [-C FILE] [-b]


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.
-b, --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.
-C, --target=PATH
Requests a configuration file different than the default /etc/cherokee/cherokee.conf to be used
-d, --appdir=DIR
Uses a custom admin-interface path
-p, --port=NUM
Specifies an alternative port. By default, 9090.
-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.
