cherokee-tweak(1) Command-line interface to the Cherokee administrative interface


cherokee-tweak -c command -a url [options]


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


cherokee-tweak accepts the following options:
-h, --help
Shows brief usage information
-V, --version
Prints version and exits
-u, --user= STRING
Specifies the user name with which to identify to the server
-p, --password= STRING
Specifies the password with which to identify to the server
-c, --command=STRING
Required option. Command to execute: logrotate, trace or info
-a, --url=URL
Required option. URL where the administration interface can be found. This target must be defined previously in cherokee-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.
-l, --log=PATH
Log file to be rotated (Only to be used when -c is logrotate)
-t, --trace=STRING
Modules to be traced (Only to be used when -c is trace). Cherokee must have been compiled with the --enable-trace for this to work. Everything traceable with CHEROKEE_TRACE can also be traced this way.
