Last I expanded the site analyzer a bit, and it has
a new location:


At the moment it still only analyzes a site for basic connectivity
and for the $FarmD exploit, but it now also provides an option to
have a copy of the results saved on the pmwiki.org server.  This 
will make it easier for me to add more tests to the analyzer, as 
well as provide me with useful site configuration information 
that I can use to improve PmWiki's installation and customization

The choice to save results is entirely optional.  Any results that
are saved are stored in a private folder on my server and won't be
made public or available to others.

At this point I could really use analysis results from any sites
running on Windows-based servers, whether they're running Apache,
IIS, or whatever.  While I have a pretty good handle on Unix and 
OS/X based environments, I'm still uncertain about all of the ways 
in which Windows-based installations are set up, so this would 
be of great help.

Again, the starting page for analysis is at 
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/SiteAnalyzer, and questions
or comments are greatly appreciated.
