Well... pointing my browser to http://localhost:8080/manage gives errors

^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ My point is that it is way
too easy to (yes) "toast" your ZODB as a result. In other words,
inability to access the manage page is equivalent to a toasted ZODB since
there is no [visible] way back in... the manage page is no longer
accessible if the first thing I do is add a VHM or SiteRoot...
Injecting a rewrite rule between the browser and Zope's
http://localhost:8080/manage won't help when going directly to
http://localhost:8080/manage gives errors which prevent doing anything
else to the ZODB; but hey... I'm re-learning Zope (which didn't have VHM
back then, IIRC), and being unable to access the ZODB after adding a
single item to a virgin copy is not a very friendly loophole, IMHO.
Even following http://www.zope.org/Members/Jace/apache-vhm appears to
assume that a Zope site already exists... am I wrong...?
BTW, did you really mean "suppress"? If so, I haven't found that yet...
(pointer?) If not, see above.
"Complex software without documentation is hard to sell someone on, IMHO.
--willdawg" which kinda says it all...
If the above results in unusable ZODB; why should I waste my time building
content if my first experience is to lose access to the ZODB..? The way I
see it right now is that my confidence in Zope has been shot down by a
rather simple setup attempt locking me out...
[It's late, I'm really tired; so hope this makes some sense...]
