SYNOPSIS

cherokee [options]

DESCRIPTION

cherokee is an extremely fast, flexible and embeddable web server.

OPTIONS

This 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<PATH>, --config=<PATH>
  Specifies an alternative path for the configuration file to use instead of the default cherokee.conf
-p<PORT>, --port=<PORT> TCP port number to which the server will listen.
-r<PATH>, --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-server-info
  Print server technical information.
-v, --valgrind
  Execute the worker process under Valgrind. Used only for development and troubleshooting purposes.

SIGNALS

The 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
 

BUGS

    Bug reports

I would appreciate hearing of any problems you have with Cherokee. I would also like to hear from you if you have successfully used Cherokee, especially if you are using it for a distribution.

Report bugs to http://bugs.cherokee-project.com

There is a mailing list for discussion among Cherokee users and for announcements of new and test versions. To join, send a message to cherokee-admin@cherokee-project.com with the line:

subscribe cherokee

in the body of the message. The submission address is cherokee@cherokee-project.com.

SEE ALSO

Cherokee can be run either with this command or cherokee-worker(1). This last option is discouraged if you are not developing though. Note that, for most systems, a startup/shutdown script such as /etc/init.d/cherokee is provided and will probably be the most convenient invocation method.
