WebCit (the binaries name is webcit) is the Citadel Servlet engine. It can operate with Citserver on another box, but it can't operate without.


Specify the home directory eg. -h/usr/local/citadel not adding a leading / will make the path relative to the compiletime path. Needed for running several webcit/citadel instances at the same host
Run as a daemon; fork watcher process.
Run as a daemon but create a pid file at PATH eg. -D/var/run/
Specify IP address to listen on as web server eg -i192.168.9.1; default is
Specify port to listen on eg. -p80; default is 2000
Specify trace file (where to put the log file) eg -t/var/log/webcit
0 (default; recommended for production systems) 1: Parse template on each request .TP -xVAL How much info to put in the trace file (or to stdout) eg -x9
Follow X-Forwarded-For: headers.
Use a server cookie.
use SSL (turns the -p default to 443)
if the citserver lives on another box, its name / ip (remember to add your webserver IP to the citadel servers public_clients - Configfile.); else the path to the unix-domain-socket. Defaults to the compiled in unix domain socket
If you want to connect to citserver via TCP specify its port here; usualy 504


The default for remotehost is to connect localy via Unix Domain Socket. The default TCP port is 504. webcit will open Port 2000 serving HTTP requests and bind if not other specified.
