Specify a configuration file as an argument when running a server


Recommended Posts


This is a small suggestion that would be great for people that run multiple server instances on the same machine. Instead of always defaulting to "conf.json" when executing the server binary you should be able to specify a configuration file as an argument (optional).

# Default to conf.json
$ ./server

# Use server1.json as configuration file
$ ./server --config server1.json

This means that you don't have to keep same files on multiple places (without symlinks) and you would also be able to run multiple instances from the same systemd unit-file. I'm also sorry if this feature already exist in a way I'm not aware of or if it has been discussed before.
