I used to maintain my website using plain old HTML files. That works fine, considering how small my site is, but I decided a CMS would be nice, and I decided werc was probably the way to go. Werc is to CMSes what Loathsxome is to blogs. It uses plain files and directories instead of some silly database. It's also written in rc, the plan9 shell, which is kind of neat.
The downside of werc is that it doesn't have a simple HOWTO or tutorial for setting it up. So, here's a quick-and-dirty version:
sites/example.comfor your website to live in, but only if the domain of your website is actually example.com. This is where I got caught up: I was hitting the site as beta.xvx.ca, but my directory was called xvx.ca, so nothing showed up. When I symlinked beta.xvx.ca to xvx.ca, it worked!
That step 3 cost me a lot of time. Watch out for it.
