HTTP store server
cn start http server for STORE on port PORT
Starts a simple HTTP server listening on port PORT. The server handles requests within /objects and /accounts, and uses STORE as backend. Requests on the root URL (/) deliver a short message.
You may need superuser (root) privileges to use the default HTTP port 80.
This server is very useful for small to medium-size projects, but not particularly efficient for large-scale applications. It makes no effort to use DMA or similar features to speed up delivery, and handles only one request at a time (single-threaded). However, when using a front-end web server with load-balancing capabilities, multiple HTTP servers for the same store may be started to handle multiple requests in parallel.
… at TEXT
As above, but makes the store accessible at /TEXT/objects and /TEXT/accounts.
… with static files from FOLDER
Delivers static files from FOLDER for URLs outside of /objects and /accounts. This is useful for self-contained web apps.
… for everybody
Sets CORS headers to allow everybody to access the store from within a web browser.
