       cherokee-tweak  - Command-line interface to the Cherokee administrative


       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.
