Apart from the SSL bit, which is a specific question-answer issue,
there should be no trouble doing things the old way. I have a site
serving some PCB-specific information which is pure HTML, not a script

script from standard gEDA symbol and footprint files, but here at home,
and the HTML is uploaded traditionally.
