Ok, thanks - I found that via the Apache modules registry, but it's one of those that looked old & unfinished ((c) 2000, tested against Apache 1.3.9/SuSE 6.3/Solaris 2.6/documented problems, etc.) - I'll look at it in more detail now ... maybe it works fine :)

Just been to have a look - interesting, but I don't want to add a CMS to the particular server I have in mind (it's a network monitoring box, with web-based reporting).

Thanks for your reply.
