	You can find here
	a quick and dirty hack (against 1.1.2) for ejabberd_web.erl which allows some users (defined with "web_admin_viewers" access rule) access to web admin, and denies them 'POST' method.
	So, cd in to your ejabberd sources, apply patch, add to config following lines:

{acl, boss_viewer, {user, "boss"}}.
{access, web_admin_viewers, [{allow, boss_viewer}]}.

	I have not tested this patch carefully, so use it at your own risk ;).

	Irrelative of above - please test 1.3 version of mod_logmnesia (look at changelog before upgrading!): http://www.dp.uz.gov.ua/o.palij/mod_logmnesia/
	Your suggestions are welcome :)
