I'm trying to compile Yaws on webfaction (hosting service) with rebar, and it doesn't work because they don't have pam-devel or libpam or whatever on their CloudLinux servers.
I see in the docs that if I compile with the makefile, I can disable pam. This would be simple. But ... What will I miss if pam is disabled ? I'm building an application with users, passwords, accounts, sessions ... but all of this is of course handled with Erlang/PHP, my guess is that it will not change anything.
So are there any tisks disabling pam ?
