       cherokee-admin - 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


       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

       -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.
