ThistleWeb discusses the difference between process based and asynchronous servers, then goes on to talk about Cherokee server and a few flat file PHP applications.

The Admin process:

  • sudo cherokee-admin
  • localhost:9090
  • Copy and paste the temprary password.
  • You can bind it (or a virtual server) to if it's meant to be a private server.

I kept refering to "spawn-cgi" in the recording. This is supposed to be "spawn-fcgi". I also inferred that it didn't use config files, it does; it just generates them via the admin web GUI and will overwrite any changes made manually.
