The Electronic Logbook ELOG can be used to store and retrieve messages
through a Web interface. Depending on the configuration, the ELOG
system can host one or more logbooks which are stored in separate
sections on the server. elogd is the daemon program serving as a
simple web server for the ELOG system.
elogd accepts the following options:
create/overwrite admin password in config file
-C url clone remote elogd configuration
specify configuration file
-D become a daemon
specify logbook root directory
specify PID file
-M synchronize with removing deleted entries
-m synchronize logbook(s) with remote server
host where elogd will run
-k do not use keep-alive
specify logbook for ‘-r’ and ‘-w’ commands
port where elogd will run
create/overwrite read password in config file
-S be silent
specify resource directory (eg. themes, icons)
-v debugging output

The full documentation for ELOG is maintained as an html manual. You
can reach it from the package document directory.
elogd is run under a seperate user/group elog , by default. You might
change it via Usr and Grp options in configuration file. The
configuration and stylesheet files should be readable by that user.
Passwords are transferred over the network in plain text and therefore,
are not secure. Although the elogd program does not support secure
connections over SSL directly, an SSL encryption wrapper like stunnel
might be used for this purpose.
