The application can be started via de commandline. Run as root: /usr/sbin/hiawatha and turn browser to: http://localhost/ The website can be found in /var/www

Remember that a webserver is a daemon that runs in the background, it's a server application. It's not a desktop application that gives you a point and click interface. To check if it's running, use the commandline tool 'ps'.

Unfortunately, MacOS X doesn't support uninstalling PKG files. Once installed, you have to uninstall manually. To do this, remove the following files:


Making a better MacOS X package is still on my ToDo list. Sorry for the inconvenience.

(on the other hand, why would you wanna uninstall such a great piece of software and it's only about 100kb in size)

Thanks a lot, your help is really appreciated!!
Now I can properly use your app and even uninstall it, if I want to. (But I think I won't )
