I mean, if tron had a webserver (apache?), I would want PHP...if it has PHP (then scripting is taken care of), I would want MySQL...etc..
It would make much more sense if it were just a server status page. Kind of like some torrent clients do. I don't see the need to get a full blown web server going with every distribution of an armagetron game server.
Ultimately, it's to provide two things:
1) A visual admin interface for the server
2) A json (or other RPC-type of interface) to integrate with a bigger website.
The recommended way to make information from it available is going to ultimately be using an apache proxy (or whatever server you prefer), which should be a bit more secure than anything we'll be able to provide.
In it's current form, it's only a proof of concept. The admin command interface isn't as easy to reach as I'd hoped when I started it, and I haven't even looked at it in awhile. I think the last thing I did was disable building it by default because I didn't know when I'd be able to get back to it.
