Subject: RE: What's up with Mudcat this time!!???
I don't know WHY either Sandra but the webserver is just another piece of software running on a computer and as with any other application, can crash.

What a webserver does is sits there listening (usualy on port 80) for someone like you with say IE to ask it to give you a page, which hopefully it supplies. HTTP (hypertext transfer protocol) is the "language" both parties understand.
