prayer-session - Prayer user session backend daemon
prayer-session [--config-file file] [[--config-option name=value] ...]
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
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:
Reads configuration from file instead of the default
Sets (overrides) the configuration option name to value. Any
number of options can be specified in this manner.
Debug mode. Run a single process in the foreground.
Can be set to specify the configuration file to use. The
--config-file option takes precedence over this variable.
Local hostname. Overrides the hostname setting in the
configuration file as well as on the command line.
Default configuration file.
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.
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.
