"Better" is in the eye of the beholder. There is no one size fits all

Tapping into comp.infosystems.www.servers.unix on DejaNews?
If software that comes with the box/OS doesn't do what I want,
I rip it out and build my own, unobfuscated version.
If the installer script cannot find the server port number, I'd make
sure that it's really set in the config file, and debug the installer
(does it locate the config file? how does it determine the server port
number? etc.) This should work reasonably well if the installer is
written in one of the common script languages.
