Yeah, I love it, it works great, peice of piss to setup and way less messing around if your looking for an off the shelf solution. Not sure about sercurity, but I just changed the httpd.conf to point the data directory to somewhere else once the setup is done. I'd recommend it to anyone who needs a webserver fast or is new to the whole thing. Ran fine for 5 months running 24/7 on a win 2k3 box.
