Re: http vs file

the advantage to setting up apache in the first place is scaling is then
simple, no having to redo your repos later, etc. when I set up apache
on linux (fedora core 6) the *only* issue I had was I decided to be
stubborn and use selinux, which made making hooks work rather obscure.
if you want my notes send me an email or post and if I see it I'll
return them.
