Correct. I have considered added direct support for maildir, but
it has yet to be done.

Correct. The procmailrc.mharc file is used by mharc directly.

The mbox directory is for the raw archives and is what the HTML
archives are based upon. They are also used to support the downloading
of raw mail messages from the HTML archives.
There is flexibility on how you choose to configure your web server.
Mharc provides a template Apache configuration in the file
<mharc-root>/etc/apache.conf. The minimum configuration is just
to have <mharc-root> accessible by the web server. If it is not
already, you can define an Alias directive in httpd.conf to do so
(a quick way is to install mharc under the public_html directory
of the mharc user account).
Otherwise, you could define specific alias directives for the
And a ScriptAlias directive for <mharc-root>/cgi-bin (which is
already provided in the <mharc-root>/etc/apache.conf file).
Make sure to verify all the *_URL config.sh variables, especially
ROOT_URL, and change them if needed to reflect your configuration.
If you change them, run,
under <mharc-root>. It will update templates (including
<mharc-root>/etc/apache.conf) to reflect your changes.
4. what set of files do i need installed into the web directories?
I'm wary of putting all the *.cgi/*.cgi.in from cgi-bin/* there.
The .in files are template files and are part of mharc configuration.
When you make changes to config.sh, you run,
An all the .in files are processed to create the non-.in versions.
The .dist files are not needed unless you may want to revert back
to based defaults at sometime.
The CGI programs are used to provide the following archive functions:
* Archive searching
* Period navigation
* Permanent bookmarking
* Raw message extraction
All the cgi files are located in <mharc-root>/cgi-bin. Therefore,
you only need to enable CGI execution in that directory.
