Running thumbor server¶
Running thumbor server is as easy as typing “thumbor” (considering you went through the proper Installing procedures).
The Server application takes some parameters that will help you tailor the thumbor Server to your needs. If you want to find out what the thumbor Server arguments are, just type:
-i or –ip¶
The address that Tornado will listen for incoming request. It defaults to 0.0.0.0 (listening on localhost and current IP).
-p or –port¶
The port that Tornado will listen for incoming request. It defaults to 8888.
-c or –conf¶

-k or –keyfile¶
The full path for the file containing the security key to be used for this server.
-l or –log-level¶
The log level to be used. Possible values are: debug, info, warning, error, critical or notset. More on that at http://docs.python.org/library/logging.html. It defaults to warning.
Number of processes to run. By default equals 1 and means no forks created. Set to 0 to detect the number of cores available on this machine. Set > 1 to start that specified number of processes.
-a or –app¶
Allows the user to specify the application class to be used. This is a very advanced usage of thumbor. This argument is specified like: “namespace1.namespace2.class_name” as in “myproj.thumbor_support.MyProjThumborApp”.
