[Nikto-discuss] Unable to update Nikto

Whoops... this was a problem on my side. When I rolled out the new site
I took a page from Jericho's book and had mod_rewrite exterminate www on
the  URLs. Not so good for the updater, which doesn't handle redirects
at all.

Fixed now, thanks for letting me know.
