It is strange  that the yapp handler application shuts down immediately once you started it. Did you prepare your mnesia database with mnesia:create_schema/1 ?
And are you starting Yaws from the same directory as you created mnesia (or using the -mnesia option) and are you using the same node name as when you created the schema - check the "Executing" section in "Yaws applications" documentation.
 
It seems that the option for pointing out mnesia db when starting yaws is --mnesiadir <dir>, not -mnesia.
