Hiawatha at the frontline, that's where it should be and that's where it serves best. Congratulations on this wise decision!
Well, I must say that the only 'cons' was mail server, but I'm ready to wrestle with it.
Otherwise, for me, Hiawatha means three things:
- Simple - the configuaration format is simplicity personified and very pleasant to work with in comparison with all the other well-known webservers.
- Ssecure - no need to speak how Hiawatha is much more secure than others
- Fast - although one would expect there would be some trade-off like speed vs security, there is none. \
Sqlite has motto: "Small. Fast. Reliable. Choose any three."
The one for Hiawatha is: "Simple. Secure. Fast. Choose them all!"
I don't know what kind of website you're hosting or the kind of environment your server is in.
I'll host few instance of PHP CMS - Tiki on 1G Linode VPS.
But I strongly advice to read the manual page, go through all the options to get an idea of what Hiawatha can do for you and keep them in mind for situations that might occur later.
OK, will do. Tomorrow I plan to tackle mail server...
The Hiawatha Monitor is a good way to keep track of the health and performance of your server and websites. Note that it's not for security monitoring only or to replace analytics software, but it's a tool to give you a general idea of what's going on at your server. It gives pointers to what log file to look at for details.
I did install Monitor and it is very cute tool. For analytics I use Piwik.
