Starting Fedwiki

--url, -u Important: Your server URL, used as Persona audience during verification --port, -p Port --data, -d location of flat file data --root, -r Application root folder --farm, -f Turn on the farm? --home The page to go to instead of index.html --host, -o Host to accept connections on, falsy == any --id Set the location of the open id file --database JSON object for database config --neighbors comma separated list of neighbor sites to seed --autoseed Seed all sites in a farm to each other site in the farm --allowed comma separated list of allowed host names for farm mode --uploadLimit Set the upload size limit, limits the size page content items, and pages that can be forked --test Set server to work with the rspec integration tests --help, -h Show this help info and exit --config, --conf Optional config file --version, -v Optional config file
