#2794: Updated install docs for mythweb
 Reporter:  rkulagow  |       Owner:  xris   
     Type:  patch     |      Status:  new    
 Priority:  minor     |   Milestone:  unknown
Component:  mythweb   |     Version:  head   
 Severity:  medium    |  
 Some edits:
 the copy command example in the expert section only copies a few files,
 like mythweb.php and the .pl file into /var/www/html, which isn't the
 intent, because it doesn't copy the actual mythweb directory.

 the mv of the mythweb.conf.apache needs to have the trailing .apache
 removed in order for apache to look at it (the httpd.conf has an include,
 but it just does *.conf, so .apache doesn't match)

 Also, some spelling changes.

  Q: I want to access mythweb from the rest of the internet. How do I make
      more secure?
