       gerbera [ -i IP address ] [ -e interface ] [ -p port ] [ -c config file ] [ -m home dir ]

       This  manual  page  describes  the  command  line  parameters  for Gerbera. For a detailed
       documentation please see the README file  which  is  distributed  with  Gerbera  or  visit


       -i, --ip
              The server will bind to the given IP address, currently we can not bind to multiple
              interfaces so binding to will not be possible.

       -e, --interface
              The server will bind to the given network interface, currently we can only bind  to
              one interface at a time.

       -p, --port
              Specify  the  server port that will be used for the web user interface, for serving
              media and for UPnP requests, minimum allowed value is  49152.  If  this  option  is
              omitted  a  default  port will be chosen, however, in this case it is possible that
              the port will change upon server restart.

       -c, --config
              By  default  Gerbera  will  search  for  a   file   named   "config.xml"   in   the
              ~/.config/gerbera directory. This option allows you to specify a config file by the
              name and location of your choice. The file name must be absolute.

       -m, --home
              Specify an alternative home directory. By default Gerbera will try to retrieve  the
              users  home  directory  from  the  environment,  then  it  will look for a .gerbera
              directory in users home. If .gerbera was found we will  try  to  find  the  default
              configuration  file  (config.xml),  if  not found we will create both, the .Gerbera
              directory and the default config file.

              This option is useful in two cases: when the home directory can  not  be  retrieved
              from  the  environment (in this case you could also use -c to point Gerbera to your
              configuration file or when you want to create a new configuration in a non standard
              location  (for  example,  when  setting up daemon mode). In the latter case you can
              combine this parameter  with  the  parameter  described  in  Section  5.6,  "Config

       -f, --cfgdir
              The  default  configuration  directory  is  combined  out of the users home and the
              default that equals to .gerbera, this option allows you  to  override  the  default
              directory naming. This is useful when you want to setup the server in a nonstandard
              location, but want that the default configuration to be written by the server.

       -P, --pidfile
              Specify a file that will hold the server process ID, the filename must be absolute.

       -a, --add
              Add the specified directory or file name to the database  without  UI  interaction.
              The  path  must  be  absolute,  if  path  is  a  directory  then  it  will be added
              recursively. If path is a file, then only the given file will be imported.

       -l, --logfile
              Do not output log messages to stdout, but redirect everything to a specified file.

       -D, --debug
              Enable debug log output.

              Print the configuration summary (used libraried and enabled features) and exit.

              Print version information and exit.

       -h, --help
              Print a summary about the available command line options.
