Core components
---------------

On Dagon you can choose for web server between the 'de-facto' Standard
Apache or the light and fast but equally powerful Lighttpd.

For making it a complete webserver we include PHP, Python, Perl and
Ruby support for both of them. The usage of fastcgi is encouraged.

Dagon is also a database server and you can choose between PostgreSQL
and MySQL, both, or none. But you always will find sqlite.

The support of LDAP for authentication is present transversaly.

Finally, the name server, implemented using tinydns.
