You probably want to have one running app dir for the stuff you are
writing. While you are writing files in that folders, the admin and
documentation contexts stay running. If you later want to deactivate
them, you can comment out the lines in the Application.config file.

Each time you run MakeAppWorkDir, it will generate a new .cgi adapter-,
or mod_kit file. But you only need one. If you are running with CGI,
then you can just configure Apache to find your cgi-adapter, and the
rest should work.

I don't know of a specific limit. If you are using reasonable names,
it shouldn't be a problem. I don't use windows so I don't know if
there will be an issue with back slashes (\). Maybe you need to double

Are you trying to use a CGI adapter? If so, the biggest issue is to
see that Apache can run your cgi. Try writing another simple cgi and
see if apache will run it. When that's working, go to your Webware cgi
adapter and see if it works too. That way you isolate getting apache
configured with getting Webware configured.
