yaws 1.94

update url/sha1

notes: yaws ships with a default configuration that expects directories to exist at:


and attempts to host a server on port 80/443

the practical upshot of this is that out of the box yaws will load, throw a warning about the directories above, and die.  supplying them will fail at the ports step because yaws expects to have root level permissions.

tl;dr- should we add a message warning about the above to the caveats part of the script?

Usually you want to build yapp (yaws applications) as well.
To do so, use:
brew install yaws --with-yapp
+ A) yaws ships with a default configuration that
+ expects the following directories to exist:
+ #{prefix}/var/log/yaws
+ #{lib}/yaws/examples/ebin
+ #{lib}/yaws/examples/include
+ and will halt if it does not find them. Either reconfigure
+ #{etc}/yaws/yaws.conf
+ or create these directories to proceed.
+ B) The default configuration will also attempt to host a server
+ on ports 80 and 443 and will fail unless you run yaws
+ interactively as root (sudo yaws -i) or modify yaws.conf.
