Re: 'Server' without Apache etc. - basic nOOb question

Hi, I think you might run into problems when trying to run LC as a Windows service, but I don't really have any experience with that. LC is either a command line application, or a full fledged app that has a full GUI. If you can incorporate either of those into a Windows service, then you're golden ...

Re: 'Server' without Apache etc. - basic nOOb question

H, a short report about the situation: After I checked FW's and bangkok's most helpful suggestions my head literally exploded. I had learned an awesome lot of things, the dictionary stack was overheating and nearly goin up in flames, and I started to realize that the solutions offered to me was ways...

Re: Complete HyperCard Handbook (2.2)

Hi, I used Compile-it all the time as well. It sped certain processes dramatically, though not all types, like disk-intensive ones. I used it mainly to process text files (my 'database'), adding, updating, searching 'records'. The speed gain on my Mac II (later FX, later: Dash FX) was immense. I eve...

Re: 'Server' without Apache etc. - basic nOOb question

Hi, You could use the machine as a SQL server only, with the firewall set up to allow connections only from the public Web server. Wouldn't this send all & anything to my DB that is passing the PHP stuff on this web server? For instance: "SELECT USERGROUP FROM USERS WHERE NAME = 'JGonz' AND PASSWORD...

Re: Complete HyperCard Handbook (2.2)

Hi,

cannot help but for me the most valuable HC book ever was the booklet that came with CompileIt!. It took me quite some time to understand, but it was it that helped me most to write actual working programs in HC. Yep, the XTernals made with it helped, too :)
Good old times ...

Have fun!

Re: 'Server' without Apache etc. - basic nOOb question

Hiya, guess I'm really a bloody nOOb in these things ... At first, thx for replys, I'll check your suggestions. But still asking myself if I need a HTTP server at all - I want to have a dedicated database machine with LC as the only interface to 'the outer world' - this way I could nicely control an...

Re: Questions about Server

Hi, you're talking of cron jobs, assume it's Linux? A standalone called as cron job would do it, LC is awesome in string manipulating. And reading/ deleting/ saving new files wouldn't be much work. As well as connecting to a DB and running SQL queries. Getting the right setup for your job might be a...

'Server' without Apache etc. - basic nOOb question

Hiya! I've spent quite some time reading tutorials, searching the forum, but to no avail. Seems the most used (and described) use case of the server is to deliver web pages, in a LAMP environment. But I only want a (faceless) server (or a -ui standalone) as a service, doing things like such: - Liste...

Encrypted database connections?

Hi, my problem: I have a MS-SQL database at my customers site. I have a MySQL database at my customers web site. I want to transfer certain data from the local MS-SQL to the web MySQL. I want to have the data on my MySQL encrypted (it's sensitive customer data). I want end-users to get their data fr...

Re: Auto Update

Hi Klaus, Thank you a lot for this! You helped me finding out about some of my false assumptions, and showed me where my mistakes was. This will save me a lot of time checking the users machine, to find out why the %!&@ my app/ program wouldn't install/ update properly ;-) Maybe it's of use for our ...

Re: Auto Update

Hi Klaus, A (probably) old stack stored in an splash stack? Why not check your web space (or github or sourceforge or ...) for the newest version available, and load & install this then? This would require an ONLINE connection to start the app for the very first time! Not good 8-) Agree. You're perf...

Re: Multiple Versions of LiveCode

Hi, seems that 6.1 Gold (6.1.0 Build 2005) is out now, but it still makes problems in Win7-64: As soon as you uninstall the prev versions you lose the file binding. (i.e. A .rev file isn't associated anymore) So starting a .rev gives you the question "What program to use to start this with?" Finding...

Re: working with files.

Hi, coming from the database side of coding I'm asking myself what's it that we see here: My; name; is; kimberlyn; [cookies, natation, greece]; or: TEM1,10,3,50,ATK,DFS,SPE,[GOF,30,33,0]; That's, for me, strange things.
