NAME

       jailer.conf - configuration file of jailer

SYNOPSIS

       jailer.conf

DESCRIPTION

       jailer  is  a  script  for  creating  chrooted  environments for Debian
       packages.

       jailer.conf is the configuration of jailer.conf

       Every config starts and ands with a jail identifier,  which  should  be
       uniq and be in brackets.

       <apache>
              For instance an apache chroot identifier should look like this:

       </apache>
              Of course you should finish the identifier

              Between  these  identifiers  configuration  should  contain  the
              following lines:

       Root: /var/chroot/apache

              This line describes the PATH of the chrooted enviroment.

       Conf:   This line describes the PATH or PATH/filename which should copy
              to  the  chrooted environment. For example Conf: /etc/apache/* ,
              which uses a wild card.

       Debs:   This line contains the name of those deb packages which  should
              be installed into the chrooted environment.

       Junk-Debs:

              This  line  contains  those  deb packages which should not to be
              installed into the chrooted environment.

       Junk:   This line contains those files or directories which should  not
              to  be  installed.  For example /lib/* means all files and links
              under    /lib     should     not     be     installed,     while
              /lib/libconsole.so.0.0.0  means  a  file  which should not to be
              installed.

       Extra:  This line contains those files or directories which  should  be
              installed  into  the chrooted environment, like /var/run means a
              directory, which is needed for the chrooted service.

WARNING

       Do not configure your  daemon  inside  your  jail,  because  updatejail
       script will wipe out all the data inside the jail. If you would like to
       change any setting inside the jail, do it at your  original  place  and
       than run updatejail
