       elogd - web server program for Electronic Logbook ELOG


       elog [ -C url ] [ -c file ] [ -D ] [ -d directory ] [ -f file ] [ -k ] [ -l logbook ] [ -M
       ] [ -m ] [ -n hostname ] [ -p port ] [ -S ] [ -s directory ] [ -v ] [ -x ]


       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:

       -C url clone remote elogd configuration

       -c file
              specify configuration file

       -D     become a daemon

       -d directory
              specify logbook root directory

       -f file
              specify PID file

       -M     synchronize with removing deleted entries

       -m     synchronize logbook(s) with remote server

       -n host
              host where elogd will run

       -k     do not use keep-alive

       -l logbook
              specify logbook for `-r' and `-w' commands

       -p port
              port where elogd will run

       -S     be silent

       -s directory
              specify resource directory (eg. themes, icons)

       -v     debugging output

       -x     enable execution of shell commands (unless compiled with this feature)



       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 separate 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. So
       if  passwords  are  used  elogd should be started with the SSL option in the configuration
       file for secure connections.
