updatejail - is a script for rebuilding a chrooted environment made with jailer
updatejail <config.file> <jail identifier>
is a script which wipes out a chroot environment and
rebuilds it. By default it leaves the /dev/log device
in the chroot, so you do not need to restart system
logger after updating a jail.
Do not configure your daemon inside your jail, because
script will wipe out all the data inside the jail. If you would
like to change any setting inside the jail, make the changes in
the original location and then run
. This makes it possible to place a jail even to a ramdisk.
The configuration file which contains the settings of the new chrooted
environment. For further information see
man 8 jailer.conf
The identifier which specifies which jail will be used. Identifiers need
to be defined at
. This identifier has to match the directory name used in the Root location.
will not parse the configuration file and determine the Root location by itself.
to work the Root location for the jail identifier has to end with the name of
the identifier itself. For example, if your identifier is apache the Root
location in jailer.conf has to be something like /chroots/apache.
