       viewvc-standalone - run a simple stand-alone HTTP server for ViewVC


       viewvc-standalone [options]


       Run a simple, standalone HTTP server configured to serve up ViewVC requests.


       -c, --config-file=PATH
              Use  the  file  at PATH as the ViewVC configuration file.  If not specified, ViewVC
              will try to use the configuration file in its installation tree; otherwise,  built-
              in default values are used.  This option is not valid in GUI mode.

       -d, --daemon
              Background the server process.

       -h, --host=HOST
              Start  the  server listening on HOST.  You need to provide the hostname if you want
              to access the standalone server from a remote machine.  The default is localhost.

       -p, --port=PORT
              Start the server on the given PORT.  The default is 49152.

       -r, --repository=PATH
              Serve up the Subversion or CVS repository located at PATH.  This option may be used
              more than once.

       -s, --script-alias=PATH
              Specify  the ScriptAlias, the artificial path location that at which ViewVC appears
              to be located.  For example, if your ScriptAlias  is  cgi-bin/viewvc,  then  ViewVC
              will  be  accessible  at  http://localhost:49152/cgi-bin/viewvc.   The  default  is

       -g, --gui
              Pop up a graphical interface for serving and testing ViewVC.  Note: this requires a
              valid X11 display connection.
