JAILER(8) System Manager's Manual JAILER(8)

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
