Hiawatha (A secure and advanced webserver)

Hiawatha is a webserver for Unix and has been built with security
in mind. This resulted in a highly secure webserver, in both code
and features.

Hiawatha supports many web and HTTP features such as
CGI/FastCGI, HTTP authentication, virtual host support, request
pipelining, keep alive connections, URL rewriting and many more.


To build/use this package the users/groups 'hiawatha' and 'php-fcgi' are
required. You can create them with:

# groupadd -g 259 hiawatha
# useradd -u 259 -g 259 -c "User for hiawatha" -d / -s /bin/false hiawatha

# groupadd -g 260 php-fcgi
# useradd -u 260 -g 260 -c "User for php-fcgi" -d / -s /bin/false php-fcgi

By default:

* hiawatha daemon is going to be listening in the network interface
and php-fcgi daemon will create the unix socket /var/run/hiawatha/php-fcgi.sock

* The web root directory is /srv/hiawatha with index.html being
the default start file.

* hiawatha daemon can write temporary files inside /var/lib/hiawatha
