"About a year ago, I discovered Comanche, a graphical configuration and administration tool for Apache. At that time, Comanche was more than a little rough around the edges, but it had serious potential. Recently, I downloaded the latest version to see what had changed. What a difference a year makes! Comanche has matured much more than I had anticipated."

"Note that the version of Comanche I am working with is a beta release. It's possible that the next version will have new features and will address issues that are mentioned in this article. It's also worth noting that Comanche is licensed under the same license as Apache, so if there's a feature you'd like to see added, or if something doesn't work quite right, you can take matters into your own hands and dig into the source."

"Comanche is a GUI tool for configuring and administering Apache. Once you've installed Apache -- which is usually done when you install any of the Linux distributions -- you can install Comanche to manage your Apache installation. Comanche doesn?t provide as much flexibility as editing the Apache configuration files by hand, but it does seem to handle most (if not all) of the configuration options for Apache."
