Unable to install swat package on Ubuntu 14.04


I am having Ubuntu 14.04 32bit running on my workstation. I want to access samba through URL like http://<machineip>:901. I read that I would need swat package. I am unable to see this package shipped with Ubuntu installation. While I use apt-get install swat it reports that no candidate for this installation is available.

File: /etc/apt/source.list
Code:
deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty multiverse
deb-src http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty multiverse
deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates multiverse
deb-src http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates multiverse

I tried searching around in launchpad https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/trusty/+package/swat but looks like this version is not compatible with samba-common 2:4.1.6. I have updated the machine through apt-get update and have samba 2:4.1.6 version installed.

I downloaded swat package from http://launchpadlibrarian.net/153083...untu3_i386.deb which is incompatible with samba-common-2:4.1.6.
Please suggest how to get SWAT to access samba through Web URL

I got this from the Debian packages site. The same may well apply to Ubuntu.
Quote:
SWAT is no longer actively maintained, and its default configuration is not secure for use over an untrusted network. SWAT will also rewrite smb.conf, rearranging the entries and deleting all comments as well as include= and copy= options, so is not suitable for use in conjunction with hand-edited smb.conf files or the default package-managed configuration.
