NAME

     prayer - standalone IMAP-based webmail server

SYNOPSIS

     prayer [--config-file file] [[--config-option name=value] ...]
            [--foreground | --disable-prefork] [--disable-session | --
            session-options ...]

DESCRIPTION

     prayer is the normal frontend daemon in the Prayer Webmail system. It is
     a simple HTTP server and proxy that serves icons and other static files,
     but firstly and foremostly forwards requests to the correct backend
     daemons based on session IDs passed either in cookies or as part of the
     URL.

     The master daemon normally preforks a number of child processes that each
     will serve a configurable number of requests. The total number of child
     processes is limited to prevent denial of service attacks.

     prayer accepts the following command-line options:

     --config-file file
             Reads configuration from file instead of the default.

     --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.

     --disable-prefork
             Disable preforking. The master daemon will listen for connections
             on the configured ports and spawn child processes one at a time.

     --disable-session
             Do not start the session server, prayer-session(8).

     --      End of prayer options; remaining options will be passed to
             prayer-session(8).

ENVIRONMENT

     PRAYER_CONFIG_FILE  Can be set to specify the configuration file to use.

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