NAME

       jailer.conf - configuration file of jailer

SYNOPSIS

       jailer.conf

DESCRIPTION

       jailer  is  a  script  for  creating  chrooted  environments for Debian
       packages.

       jailer.conf is the configuration file for jailer.conf

       Every configuration definition  has  to  start  and  end  with  a  jail
       identifier, which should be unique and be in brackets.

       <apache>
              For example, an Apache chroot identifier should look like this:

       </apache>
              The identifier use needs to be closed.

              The  configuration  for  the  chroot  instance is defined inside
              these identifiers. The following lines can be used  to  describe
              the configuration:

       Root: /var/chroot/apache

              This line describes the PATH of the chrooted enviroment.

       Conf:

              This  line  describes  the PATH or PATH/filename which should be
              copied over to  the  chrooted  environment.  For  example  Conf:
              /etc/apache/* , which uses a wild card.

       Debs:

              This  line  contains  the  name  of  those Debian packages which
              should be installed into the chrooted environment.

       Junk-Debs:

              This line contains  those  deb  packages  which  should  not  be
              installed into the chrooted environment.

       Junk:

              This  line  contains those files or directories which should not
              be installed. For example /lib/* means all files and links under
              /lib  should  not  be  installed, while /lib/libconsole.so.0.0.0
              means a file which should not to be installed.

       Extra:

              This line contains those files or directories  which  should  be
              installed  into  the chrooted environment. For example: /var/run
              will install that a directory which is needed for  the  chrooted
              service.

WARNING

       Do  not  configure  your  daemon  inside  your jail, because updatejail
       script will wipe out all the data inside the jail. If you would want to
       change  any  settings inside the jail, make the changes in the original
       location and then run updatejail . This makes it possible  to  place  a
       jail even to a ramdisk.
