NAME

       jailer - jailer is a script for creating jails from Debian packages

SYNOPSIS

       jailer <jailer.conf> <jail identifier>

DESCRIPTION

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

       Jailer deals only with Debian packages, which should  be  installed  to
       your Debian system.

WARNING

       Do  not  configure your daemon inside your jail, because the updatejail
       script will wipe out all the data inside the jail. If you would like 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.

Options

       <jailer.conf>
              The  configuration  file  which contains the settings of the new
              chrooted  environment.   For  further  information  see  man   5
              jailer.conf

       <jail identifier>
              identifier  which  determines  which  jail will be created. This
              identifier has to be defiend in jailer.conf
