NAME

     prayer-session - Prayer user session backend daemon

SYNOPSIS

     prayer-session [--config-file file] [[--config-option name=value] ...]
                    [--foreground]

DESCRIPTION

     prayer-session is the backend process in the Prayer Webmail system. A
     fresh prayer-session backend is forked off whenever a user logs in.

     This process contains all of the permanent state associated with that
     login session including one or more connections to a IMAP server and
     possibly connections to accountd servers. prayer-session communicates
     with the user using HTML over HTTP connections via the prayer(8) proxy.
     Each login has a session ID that the front end processes use to find the
     correct backend.

     Backend server processes move into a dormant state after a certain period
     of inactivity, shutting down IMAP and accountd connections which can be
     easily resuscitated when the session wakes up. After a long period of
     inactivity, typically several hours the session process shuts down.

     prayer-session accepts the following command-line options:

     --config-file file
             Reads configuration from file instead of the default
             /etc/prayer/prayer.cf.

     --config-option name=value
             Sets (overrides) the configuration option name to value.  Any
             number of options can be specified in this manner.

     --foreground
             Debug mode. Run a single process in the foreground.

ENVIRONMENT

     PRAYER_CONFIG_FILE
             Can be set to specify the configuration file to use. The
             --config-file option takes precedence over this variable.

     PRAYER_HOSTNAME
             Local hostname. Overrides the hostname setting in the
             configuration file as well as on the command line.

FILES

     /etc/prayer/prayer.cf
             Default configuration file.

     /usr/share/prayer/templates/
             Location of standard templates. The templates are compiled into
             prayer-session for performance reasons, so the template files are
             actually not used, but they are available for customization.

     /etc/prayer/templates/
             The Debian pre-configured template_path.  As a Debian extension,
             prayer-session looks here before falling back to the compiled
             template if template_use_compiled is false.
