dzhandle — Debian/Ubuntu Zope packages handling command line utility
dzhandle [options] action [action options]
dzhandle is the command-line utility for handling Zope servers, instances and products. It is a system administration tool and a Debian/Ubuntu maintainer's helper script at the same time: using dzhandle you can manage your Zope installations, create instances, add Zope products to them, start and stop them, but it is also used by the Debian/Ubuntu Zope packages for their installation and removal.
-h, --help Print usage information and exit -f, --force Force things, for example file overwriting or removing -z, --zope-version=ZVERSIONS limit actions to a comma separated list of zope versions; default behaviour is to act on all zope versions available -u, --user=USER[:GROUP] User/Group ownership for new and copied files -c, --config-file=FILE Configuration file; default is /etc/dzhandle.conf -v, --verbose Enable verbose mode (not yet implemented) -n, --dry-run Do not execute commands, print only them (not yet implemented)
ACTIONS (instances handling)
make-instance <instance> -m AMODE [<options>] Create a new instance running Zope version specific mkzopeinstance. -m AMODE, --addon-mode=AMODE Which products and extensions will be installed: `all' means every product or extension available will be automatically installed, `manual' means that the products or extensions will be installed manually through dzhandle. This option is mandatory. -t ATECHNIQUE, --addon-install-technique=ATECHNIQUE How to install addons: `linked' means the product or extension directory will be symlinked into the instance home, `tree-linked' means the directory structure will be re-created and then files symlinked, `copied' means the file will be copied into the instance home. Default: tree-linked. -r RESTART, --restart=RESTART when to restart on configuration of new products or extensions: `configuring' means after every product or extension configuration, `end' means at the end of the installation of all packages, `manually' means no automatic restart will happen. Default: end -u USER, --user=USER user and password for the initial user (in the form `user:password'); these settigs can be modified later using zpasswd.py utility from Zope. You'll be prompted for an username and password if the options is omitted. --service-user=SRVUSER system user used to run this instance (in the form `user:groupdefault'); this setting can be modified later editing the zope.conf file of the instance. Default: zope:zope --service-port=SRVPORT HTTP port used to run this instance; this setting can be modified later editing the zope.conf file of the instance. Default: 9673 --skelsrc=SKEL the directory from which skeleton files should be copied; must at least contain the following directories: `bin', `etc', `Extensions', `import', `lib', `log', `Products', `var' and files: `bin/zopeservice.py.in', `bin/runzope.bat.in', `bin/runzope.in', `bin/runzope.in', `bin/zopectl.in', `etc/zope.conf.in'. Default: /usr/lib/zopeVER/skel remove-instance <instance> Remove an instance (except data files) and mark it as removed. purge-instance <instance> Purge files for an instance (including data files). show-instance <instance> Print a short summary about an instance. list-instances Print the list of available instances. instance-addon-mode <instance> [<mode>] Get or set an addon-mode for an instance. instance-addon-technique <instance> [<technique>] Get or set an addon-install-technique for an instance. instance-restart-policy <instance> [<restart-policy>] Get or set a policy on addon-installation for an instance. zopectl <instance> <zdctl-action> [<zdctl options>] Call a zopectl action (e.g. `start', `stop' or `restart') for a given instance. restart-pending-instances Restart instances with `restart-pending' markers.
ACTIONS (ZEO instances handling)
make-zeoinstance <instance> Create a new instance running Zope version specific mkzeoinstance. purge-zeoinstance <instance> Purge files for a ZEO instance (including data files). list-zeoinstances Print the list of available ZEO instances. zeoctl <instance> <zeotl-action> [<zeotl options>] Call a zeoctl action (e.g. `start', `stop' or `restart') for a given ZEO instance.
ACTIONS (products and extensions handling)
list-products, list-extensions show all products or extensions managed by dzhandle add-product, add-extension add a product or extension to an instance -l, --lazy Add missing addons only (error on manually installed addons). -t ATECHNIQUE, --addon-install-technique=ATECHNIQUE How to install the specified addons. remove-product, remove-extension remove a product or extension from an instance -l, --lazy Do not complain about already removed addons. -f, --force Force removal of the addons.
ACTIONS (for Zope products maintainers)
The following actions should be used inside the maintainer scripts of Debian/Ubuntu packages of Zope products and extensions. If the package uses zope-debhelper's dh_installzope, these actions will be automatically included. dinstall-extension, dinstall-product install a packaged extension/product dremove-extension, dremove-product remove a packaged extension/product postinst-extension, postinst-product handle postinst of a packaged extension/product postrm-extension, postrm-product handle postrm of a packaged extension/product preinst-extension, preinst-product handle preinst of a packaged extension/product prerm-extension, prerm-product handle prerm of a packaged extension/product show-package-info show various information about zope packages
