Re: Execute permissions?

I just had some work-situations change and needed a laptop so I could be in an office or go home to work. By pure chance a friend was selling a Lenovo Thinkpad T540p for cheap. I did not care for it at first glance, but the price was right ($200) After having it for a couple of weeks I love it. The ...

Re: Best strategy for building complex software?

Thanks for the description. I am always curious to hear from people who are immigrating from FM. As a side note: you might be interested in a feature Richard Gaskin showed me a while back. Basically, if you have a webserver (I think LiveCloud has webhosting built in) with Livecode you can create a l...

Re: Best strategy for building complex software?

Out of curiosity: did you use Filemaker Server with your app, or did you just keep it all together on the same computer? Did you get into separating data from the user-interface? I remember Filemaker did have that ability and it made designing databases much easier. Are you moving to a MySQL databas...

Re: Raspberry Pi

I have a few raspberry pi zero's out in the field (some of them literally out in a field) that work in conjunction with Livecode Server. Rather than running livecode on the pi, I use bash or python scripts on the pi to send data to a livecode server (a VPS from Linode or digitalOcean), and use the s...

Re: smtp

Another option maybe to use an email service that has a REST API. Couple of examples (I haven't tried these myself): https://rapidapi.com/fapi/api/fapimail/details https://www.mailjet.com/email-api/ GMail also has an API https://developers.google.com/gmail/api/guides/sending For the OP's use-case, ...

Re: smtp

Do you have a server that you are sending the messages to, that then get emailed? If so, does your server have livecode-server installed along with Apache? Or perhaps just php? you could just send a POST with the message to your server and from there you can email it or log it in a database. From a ...

Re: Use send for file cleanup?

You could just run a simple bash command on a cron every night to clean up files older than a day. Something like:

Code: Select all

       find /path/to/your/folder/*.jpg -type f -daystart -mtime +0 -exec rm {} \;

Re: Email Issue or Domain Issue?

..I just want to re-iterate that changing nameservers can take up to a few days to completely propagate across the internet. If you make that change, things might start working in a few hours...and then stop working..then start working again. You just have to wait the full 3 days before you can real...

Re: Email Issue or Domain Issue?

You do not have an MX record set up for your domain. It looks like you have GoDaddy set up as your DNS server, so you need to go into there and point your MX records to wherever the email server is. https://www.godaddy.com/help/add-an-mx-record-19234 The email server is what you set up when you adde...

Re: Create Shortcut to Internet Web Page

I am running linux ( Ubuntu 20.04). It works for me. It asks where I want to save it and for a file-name and then it creates the html file. My linux machine defaults to opening HTML documents with the default browser, so firefox opens when I click on the saved html file. If I remember correctly, Win...

Re: Create Shortcut to Internet Web Page

Why not just create an html page with a redirect to your link ( link.html ) with the content something like: <html> <head> <title>redirects to link after 1 second</title> <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1; URL=http://livecode.digio.space/"> <meta name="keywords" content="automatic redirection"> ...

Re: LC Server (Indy)

Bummer. On my ubuntu servers (which I have set up a few), here is what I do to get livecode-server working (this may or may not be helpful): put the 64-bit livecode-server into /usr/lib/cgi-bin/ folder then make it executable: sudo chmod a+x /usr/lib/cgi-bin/livecode-server then enable the mods: sud...
