Web Server Tell commands

You can use Tell commands with the Web Server.

Table 1. Tell commands for the web server



Tell HTTP Dump Config

Dumps the HTTP configuration to a text file so that you can see how the server is configured.

Tell HTTP Refresh

Refreshes the Web Server before the normal refresh. You can specify the refresh cycle interval in the Server document.

During a Web Server refresh cycle, all of the configuration information contained in the Web Site documents, and documents attached to Web Site documents (file protection, authentication realms, and rules) is updated on the server.

Tell HTTP Restart

Refreshes the Web server with changes made to settings in the:

  • Server document for the Web Server
  • File Protection, Virtual Server, and URL Mapping documents in the Domino® Directory.
  • NOTES.INI file that affects the HTTP server task
  • Changes to Java servlets or the servlets.properties file

This command produces the same results as stopping and restarting the Web Server. However, this Tell command is faster than stopping and restarting because when you use the Tell command, the HTTP server task remains in memory. All outstanding HTTP requests are processed before the HTTP task restarts, however no HTTP requests are processed during restart.

This command deletes the in-memory page and user-authentication caches.

Tell HTTP Show File Access

Displays information about file system protection on the machine, and on virtual servers, if you set up virtual servers on the machine.

Tell HTTP Show Security

Displays information about SSL and the server key ring file, including information about whether the server started SSL on the machine. Displays information about SSL for virtual servers if you set up virtual servers on the machine.

Tell HTTP Show Users

Displays the names of users, their IP addresses, and the session expiration time for users authenticated with session-based authentication.

Servers participating in single sign-on, configured for multi-server session-based authentication may not report sessions accurately using this command.

If the authentication cookie originates from the current server, displays the user name, IP address, and session expiration time for that web server. If the authentication cookie does not originate on the current server, does not display session information for users.

After a user logs out, this command continues to display the cookie as valid on the server. The session is still valid even though the user has ended the session.

Tell HTTP Show Virtual Servers

Displays a list of virtual servers running on the machine.

Tell HTTP Quit

Stops the Web Server task.
