    Cheyenne Web Server

    Latest Version:

    Graham: unpack it on your server and then run cheyenne.r

    Graham: - to setup ssl on your Cheynnee webserver

    Graham: cheyenne should be run on another port other than 80 if you have 2003 running
    Graham: ssl traffic is then directed to this port

    Q: does my synapse-server.exe have to be on the same box as cheyenne ?
    Graham: yes, as it uses odbc to connect to the database

    Graham: anyway, get https working and then i'll send you the script to create pdfs on the server
    you need to install ghostscript on the server choose a nice easy directory like c:\gs\

    Cheyenne is a full-featured Apache-class web server implementation using the REBOL programming language. The project started just as a simple rewrite of our UniServe's HTTPd service to make it more flexible and
    ended as creating Cheyenne !

    Cheyenne is built on top of our UniServe
    async network framework, so Cheyenne's kernel inherits the gains of
    asynchronous I/O and mono-process lightweight design while being able
    to spawn worker processes to dispatch the load for heavier requests.
    So, Cheyenne has good scalability making it suitable for small or
    medium sized web sites. It can sustain the load of up to 500
    simultaneous requests on servers with dual-core CPU.

    There is a handy roadmap:
