It's unmaintained. We'd rather like people to switch to something
something maintained like Zinc on Pharo or WebClient on Squeak than
having to maintain our own web server.

Likely because no server adaptor has yet been registered. See the
answer of John McKeon or do the following first (after loading
WebClient-Seaside). Then it should work.

WAWebServerAdaptor port: 8081
