Looks like a PHP site to me:

   > wget -S http://www.trapexit.org/
   --2012-04-16 21:07:11--  http://www.trapexit.org/
   Resolving www.trapexit.org (www.trapexit.org)... 213.171.204.166
   ...
   X-Powered-By: PHP/5.1.4

so it not working isn't directly Erlang's fault. Maybe there's an argument
along the lines of eating your own dogfood, which erlang.org seems to do:

   >wget -S www.erlang.org
   ...
   Server: inets/5.7.1

but, then again, Erlang doesn't have to be the right tool for
everything---rewriting mediawiki would be quite a job. And then
there's a whole separate discussion over whether a wiki is the right
thing.
