.SH NAME
appfsd, mount.appfs - AppFS FUSE Daemon

.SH SYNOPSIS
.BI "appfsd [\-dfsh] [\-o " option "[," ... "]] " cachedir " " mount_point
.br
.BI "mount.appfs [\-dfsh] [\-o " option "[," ... "]] " cachedir " " mount_point

.SH DESCRIPTION
AppFS is a FUSE-based filesystem to present a manifest-based package format
from remote servers to the local system.  It works over HTTP (by default,
at least).  Remote sites are identified at the top-level of the mounted
directory and all sites are verified by PKI signature.

AppFS is started with the \fBappfsd\fR daemon, which may also be named
\fBmount.appfs\fR.

.SH OPTIONS
.TP 
.BR \-d
Enable FUSE debug mode. 

.TP
.B \-f
Run AppFS daemon in the foreground.

.TP
.B \-s
Enable single threaded mode.  This will significantly reduce performance and
responsiveness.

.TP
.B \-h
Request usage help.

.TP
.B "\-o nothreads"
Enable single threaded mode.  This will significantly reduce performance and
responsiveness.
This is the same as the "\fB-s\fR" option, provided for use in an
\fI/etc/fstab\fR option.

.TP
.B "\-o allow_other"
Allow other users to access this mountpoint (this is the default if the user
running \fBappfsd\fR is root).

.TP
.I cachedir
Path to a directory to store cache database and read configuration file from.
A suggested value for this for a system-wide \fBappfsd\fR is
\fI/var/cache/appfs\fR.

.TP
.I mount_point
Path to mount AppFS onto in the filesystem.  This should almost always be
\fI/opt/appfs\fR.

.SH FILES
.TP
.IB cachedir /config
Configuration file for this instance of AppFS.  This should be a valid
.BR Tcl (n)
script.  The configuration file can be modified at run-time and \fBappfsd\fR
reloaded by sending it a \fBSIGHUP\fR.

.TP
.IB cachedir /cache.db
SQLite3 database used for maintaining metadata for the cache directory.

.SH EXAMPLES
The most recommended method of running AppFS (directly):
.PP
.nf
.RS
# mkdir /opt/appfs
# appfsd /var/cache/appfs /opt/appfs
.RE
.fi

Create an \fI/etc/fstab\fR entry:
.PP
.nf
.RS
/var/cache/appfs /opt/appfs       appfs       defaults         0   0
.RE
.fi
