       The  Electronic Logbook ELOG can be used to store and retrieve messages
       through a Web interface.  Depending  on  the  configuration,  the  ELOG
       system  can  host  one  or  more  logbooks which are stored in separate
       sections on the server.  elogd is  the  daemon  program  serving  as  a
       simple web server for the ELOG system.


       elogd accepts the following options:

       -C url clone remote elogd configuration

       -c file
              specify configuration file

       -D     become a daemon

       -d directory
              specify logbook root directory

       -f file
              specify PID file

       -M     synchronize with removing deleted entries

       -m     synchronize logbook(s) with remote server

       -n host
              host where elogd will run

       -k     do not use keep-alive

       -l logbook
              specify logbook for `-r' and `-w' commands

       -p port
              port where elogd will run

       -S     be silent

       -s directory
              specify resource directory (eg. themes, icons)

       -v     debugging output

       -x     enable  execution  of  shell commands (unless compiled with this



       The full documentation for ELOG is maintained as an  html  manual.  You
       can reach it from the package document directory.


       elogd  is  run under a separate user/group elog , by default. You might
       change  it  via  Usr  and  Grp  options  in  configuration  file.   The
       configuration and stylesheet files should be readable by that user.

       Passwords are transferred over the network in plain text and therefore,
       are not secure. So if passwords are used elogd should be  started  with
       the SSL option in the configuration file for secure connections.
