Controlling Starman

Submitted by pbolger on Sun, 12/27/2015 - 15:02

Useful Starman commands.
Using the perl based Starman webserver is the easiest way to run LedgerSMB locally (and quite possibly for production use as well).

## At the terminal, and from your LedgerSMB directory:
### Start Starman

starman  tools/starman.psgi

Default port is 5000.

starman -l :8080 tools/starman.psgi

Start with 8080 specified as the port.

Note: some documentation specifies the switch

--preload-app

It has been sugggested that this may give performance advantages in a production environment but isn't recommended while developing.
The manpage has more to say on this.
