FAQ: Remote Administration

My web site is hosted in another state. Does Sawmill provide browser based admin tools I can use to configure it and retrieve reports?

Short Answer

Yes, Sawmill's interface is entirely browser based.

Long Answer

Sawmill's interface is entirely web browser based. Sawmill runs either as a stand-alone program (in which case it uses its own built-in web server to serve its interface), or as a CGI program (in which case it uses the normal web server on the machine). In either case, Sawmill is configured by running a web browser on any machine you choose, and accessing Sawmill as though it were a web site. Statistics are also served through a web browser interface. You do not need to be physically present at the server to configure it or to view reports; all you need is a web browser.
