 On debian systems, the following packages are required to run it:
-If you're running this in apache, you'll also need:
-libapache2-mod-fastcgi (non-free archive) (we'll use something better soon)
+Since the rewrite of Weather with Twisted, there is no need to run Apache in
+front of Weather. You can still do so if you like (or have an Apache server
+running anyway), but you will need to forward requests to Weather in some way.
-You may want to use our configuration file (this is a debian example):
-	cp tor-weather-apache2.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/tor-weather
-	a2ensite tor-weather
-	/etc/init.d/apache2 reload
 /etc/tor/torrc should be configured to enable the control port and insist upon
 authentication.  Plaintext control port authentication information
 should be placed in config.py, along with a publicly addressable url prefix
-Weather stores its records in a set of gdbm databases: requests.gdbm,
-subscriptions.gdbm, unsubscriptions.gdbm, and failures.gdbm.  For real usage,
-it is absolutely essential to backup subscriptions.gdbm properly, and
-unsubscriptions.gdbm is pretty important too (though the code could be modified
-to recover from its loss).
+Weather stores its records in a set a Sqlite3 database: subscriptions.db
+It may be helpful to make backups of that file.
