CommandBox stores information about each of the servers you've ever started inside
~/.CommandBox/servers.json so it can remember settings from one run to the next.
You can see an overview of your servers and what state they're in with the
server list command.
server list site1 (starting) https://127.0.0.1:8081 C:\site1 site1 (running) https://127.0.0.1:8082 C:\site2 site3 (stopped) https://127.0.0.1:8083 C:\site3
If you have many servers, you can provide parmeters to help filter the results from
# All servers containing the word "foo" server list foo # Running servers server list --running
To list only the servers that have been started in a given directory, use the
server list --local
You can take a quick look at the what's been happening with the
server log command or use the
server status command to see more detailed information including the arguments used previously to start/stop the server.
Servers are uniquely identified by their full path, but they also have a short name which defaults to the immediate folder containing their web root. The
start, etc commands can be run in the web root for a server, or in any working directory as long as you reference the server's short name.
start site1 start site2 restart site3 stop site2 stop --all
Another handy shortcut is the
server cd command that will change the current working directory of the interactive shell to the web root of a named server.
server cd site1 start server cd site2 install myPackage restart
Info Server name is the first parameter to all server commands and tab completion works too, making it as easy as possible for you.
You can get information about a server using the
server info command. Add the
--JSON flag to get the data back in a JSON format. The
property parameter will allow you to retrieve a single value for scripting mashups.
server info server info --JSON server info property=serverHomeDirectory server info property=consoleLogPath
If you want to wipe all configuration, logs, and WEB-INF files for a server, use the
server forget command. This will also remove any administrator settings you may have saved including data sources, mail servers, and server mappings.
You can forget all your servers at once too if you want to start with a clean slate. This command will stop and forget all servers.
server stop --all --forget
