NAME
       cherokee	- Cherokee Web Server

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 follow-
       ing 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	devel-
	       opment 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	Chero-
       kee, 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 an-
       nouncements of new and test versions. To	join, send a message to	chero-
       kee-admin@cherokee-project.com with the line:

       subscribe cherokee

       in the body of the message. The submission address  is  cherokee@chero-
       kee-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	conve-
       nient invocation	method.
