didn't know about the web folder policy. I agree web applications and server 
modules should be treated differently, but they should nevertheless work out of 
the box. At the moment mod_musicindex assumes that style data can be read from 
<serveradress>/musicindex, but it can't. There should be at least a notice that 
an Alias with the name /musicindex has to be created (better yet add it with the 
install script) or the data needs to be copied to www/data by hand.

Thanks for looking into it.
