Webware looks promising but I'm having trouble. (RH linux 6.2)
 
1.  I think I found an error in your documentation \Webware\WebKit\Docs\InstallGuide.html.  Where it says
 
  • Using a text editor, change the line in WebKit.cgi that reads WebKitDir = None to point to WebKit. For example, WebKitDir = '/home/me/Webware/WebKit'.
 
There is no such line.  There is a line that says WebwareDir = None
So I changed that line to WebwareDir = /home/jon/Webware

2.  Now, I don't know if its related or not but when I run bash AppServer I get
 
...If AppServer is called with no arguments, it will start the AppServer and record the pid of the process in appserverpid.txt
 
Error starting the AppServer
Traceback:
 
MiscUtils.Configurable.ConfigurationError
Invalid configuration file, /home/jon/Webware/WebKit/Configs/AppServer.config.
  File "WebKit/AsyncThreadedAppServer.py", line 378, in run
    server = AsyncThreadedAppServer()

    AppServer.__init__(self)
  File "WebKit/AppServer.py", line 47, in __init__

    value = Configurable.setting(self, name, default)

    self._config.update(self.userConfig())
  File "MiscUtils/Configurable.py", line 92, in userConfig
    raise ConfigurationError, 'Invalid configuration file, %s.' % self.configFilename()
[root@rh62 WebKit]#

As you can see below, I do have that config file, and this is what it says
[root@rh62 Configs]# pwd
/home/jon/Webware/WebKit/Configs
[root@rh62 Configs]# cat AppServer.config
{
        'PrintConfigAtStartUp': 1,
        'Verbose':              1,

        'PlugIns':              [],
        'PlugInDirs':           ['..'],
        'ServerThreads':        10,
}
[root@rh62 Configs]# ls-l

Any suggestions?  My first guess is that, because I copied these files from DOS the line-endings might be confusing things.  But I'm sufficiently confused that I'm going to wait for some guidance.  Thank you!
 
PS.
Here's what I got when I ran install.py
root@rh62 Webware]# python install.py
