Oh, I will stay. No doubt. I can't turn down this group. I will try Apache,
I think. I am also looking at the Sambar server. pi3 isn't going to be
uninstalled anytime soon, it will just be turned off while i run something
else for another project (a few weeks).

I can wait longer than that.

I trust the chmod/Unix security that my server uses. The pi3 server is for

I do remember, and I was very impressed. I am willing to go in and meddle
with my config file, and even have the underlying PERL to edit it with an
HTML form (originally to change index.shtml settings). If you figure out a
way to edit the config file to do this, I'll make a perl script to do it
automatically, to run after the GUI rewrites it.

I hope my original post wasn't angry or threatening - I only wanted my
position understood. Thanks,
