5.Dt mongoose 1
7.Nm mongoose
8.Nd lightweight web server
11.Op Ar config_file
14.Fl A Ar htpasswd_file domain_name user_name password
17is small, fast and easy to use web server with CGI, SSL, MD5 authorization,
18and basic SSI support.
21does not detach from terminal, and uses current working directory
22as the web root, unless
23.Fl r
24option is specified.
25It is possible to specify multiple ports to listen on. For example, to make
26mongoose listen on HTTP port 80 and HTTPS port 443, one should start it as:
28.Fl s Ar cert.pem Fl p Ar 80,443s
30Unlike other web servers,
32does not require CGI scripts be put in a special directory. CGI scripts can
33be anywhere. CGI (and SSI) files are recognized by the file name pattern.
35uses shell-like glob patterns with the following syntax:
36.Bl -tag -compact -width indent
37.It **
38Matches everything
39.It *
40Matches everything but slash character, '/'
41.It ?
42Matches any character
43.It $
44Matches the end of the string
45.It |
46Matches if pattern on the left side or the right side matches. Pattern on the
47left side is matched first
49All other characters in the pattern match themselves.
51If no arguments are given,
53searches for a configuration file called "mongoose.conf" in the same directory
54where mongoose binary is located. Alternatively, a file name could be
55specified in the command line. Format of the configuration file is the same
56as for the command line options except that each option must be specified
57on a separate line, leading dashes for option names must be omitted.
58Lines beginning with '#' and empty lines are ignored.
61.Bl -tag -width indent
62.It Fl A Ar htpasswd_file domain_name user_name password
63Add/edit user's password in the passwords file. Deleting users can be done
64with any text editor. Functionality is similar to Apache's
65.Ic htdigest
67.It Fl C Ar cgi_pattern
68All files that fully match cgi_pattern are treated as CGI.
69Default pattern allows CGI files be
70anywhere. To restrict CGIs to certain directory, use e.g. "-C /cgi-bin/**.cgi".
71Default: "**.cgi$|**.pl$|**.php$"
72.It Fl E Ar cgi_environment
73Extra environment variables to be passed to the CGI script in addition to
74standard ones. The list must be comma-separated list of X=Y pairs, like this:
76.It Fl G Ar put_delete_passwords_file
77PUT and DELETE passwords file. This must be specified if PUT or
78DELETE methods are used. Default: ""
79.It Fl I Ar cgi_interpreter
81.Ar cgi_interpreter
82as a CGI interpreter for all CGI scripts regardless script extension.
83Mongoose decides which interpreter to use by looking at
84the first line of a CGI script.  Default: "".
85.It Fl M Ar max_request_size
86Maximum HTTP request size in bytes. Default: "16384"
87.It Fl P Ar protect_uri
88Comma separated list of URI=PATH pairs, specifying that given URIs
89must be protected with respected password files. Default: ""
90.It Fl R Ar authentication_domain
91Authorization realm. Default: ""
92.It Fl S Ar ssi_pattern
93All files that fully match ssi_pattern are treated as SSI.
94Unknown SSI directives are silently ignored. Currently, two SSI directives
95are supported, "include" and "exec".  Default: "**.shtml$|**.shtm$"
96.It Fl a Ar access_log_file
97Access log file. Default: "", no logging is done.
98.It Fl d Ar enable_directory_listing
99Enable/disable directory listing. Default: "yes"
100.It Fl e Ar error_log_file
101Error log file. Default: "", no errors are logged.
102.It Fl g Ar global_passwords_file
103Location of a global passwords file. If set, per-directory .htpasswd files are
104ignored, and all requests must be authorised against that file.  Default: ""
105.It Fl i Ar index_files
106Comma-separated list of files to be treated as directory index files.
107Default: "index.html,index.htm,index.cgi"
108.It Fl l Ar access_control_list
109Specify access control list (ACL). ACL is a comma separated list
110of IP subnets, each subnet is prepended by '-' or '+' sign. Plus means allow,
111minus means deny. If subnet mask is
112omitted, like "-", then it means single IP address. Mask may vary
113from 0 to 32 inclusive. On each request, full list is traversed, and
114last match wins. Default setting is to allow all. For example, to allow only
115192.168/16 subnet to connect, run "mongoose -,+192.168/16".
116Default: ""
117.It Fl m Ar extra_mime_types
118Extra mime types to recognize, in form
119"extension1=type1,extension2=type2,...". Extension must include dot.
120Example: "mongoose -m .cpp=plain/text,.java=plain/text". Default: ""
121.It Fl p Ar listening_ports
122Comma-separated list of ports to listen on. If the port is SSL, a letter 's'
123must be appeneded, for example, "-p 80,443s" will open port 80 and port 443,
124and connections on port 443 will be SSL-ed. It is possible to specify an
125IP address to bind to. In this case, an IP address and a colon must be
126prepended to the port number. For example, to bind to a loopback interface
127on port 80 and to all interfaces on HTTPS port 443, use
128"mongoose -p,443s". Default: "8080"
129.It Fl r Ar document_root

131.It Fl s Ar ssl_certificate

135.It Fl u Ar run_as_user
136Switch to given user's credentials after startup. Default: ""
137.It Fl w Ar url_rewrite_patterns
138Comma-separated list of URL rewrites in the form of
139"pattern=substitution,..." If the "pattern" matches some prefix
140of the requested URL, then matched prefix gets substituted with "substitution".
141For example, "-w /config=/etc,**.doc|**.rtf=/path/to/cgi-bin/handle_doc.cgi"
142will serve all URLs that start with "/config" from the "/etc" directory, and
143call handle_doc.cgi script for .doc and .rtf file requests. If some pattern
144matches, no further matching/substitution is performed
145(first matching pattern wins). Use full paths in substitutions. Default: ""
146.It Fl x Ar thread_stack_size
147Use the given amount of stack for each thread. Default: ""
148.It Fl y Ar thread_priority
149Use the given priority for all posix threads. If this option is used without the
150thread_policy option, the systems default scheduling policy will be used for the
151threads instead of inheriting the policy of the creating thread. Default: ""
152.It Fl z Ar thread_policy
153Select the posix scheduling policy for the threads.  Possible Values are 's' for
154sporadic (not on all systems available), 'r' for round robin, 'f' for fifo or
155'o' for other scheduling strategie. If this option is used without the
156thread_priority option, the systems default priority will be used for the
157threads instead of inheriting the priority of the creating thread. Default: ""
162was designed to be embeddable into C/C++ applications. Since the
