SYNOPSIS

prayer-session [--config-file file] [[--config-option name = value] ...] [--foreground]

DESCRIPTION

prayer-session is the backend process in the Prayer Webmail system. A fresh prayer-session backend is forked off whenever a user logs in.

This process contains all of the permanent state associated with that login session including one or more connections to a IMAP server and possibly connections to accountd servers. prayer-session communicates with the user using HTML over HTTP connections via the prayer 8 proxy. Each login has a session ID that the front end processes use to find the correct backend.

Backend server processes move into a dormant state after a certain period of inactivity, shutting down IMAP and accountd connections which can be easily resuscitated when the session wakes up. After a long period of inactivity, typically several hours the session process shuts down.

prayer-session accepts the following command-line options:
--config-file file
  Reads configuration from file instead of the default /etc/prayer/prayer.cf.
--config-option name = value
  Sets (overrides) the configuration option name to value. Any number of options can be specified in this manner.
--foreground
  Debug mode. Run a single process in the foreground.

ENVIRONMENT

PRAYER_CONFIG_FILE
  Can be set to specify the configuration file to use. The --config-file option takes precedence over this variable.
PRAYER_HOSTNAME
  Local hostname. Overrides the
.Cd hostname setting in the configuration file as well as on the command line.

FILES

/usr/local/prayer/etc/prayer.cf
  Default configuration file.
/usr/local/prayer/templates/
  Location of standard templates. The templates are compiled into prayer-session for performance reasons, so the template files are actually not used, but they are available for customization.
