Livecode Server and https

Post by jihem » Fri Jan 30, 2015 5:21 pm

Hi,
I wrote and use web services with https. Everything works on the desktop version of LiveCode. I have a working server with Apache/Livecode Server on the same PC. All goes as expected with http but I can't get it working with https.

You can try this...

<?lc
put url("http://www.google.fr")
?>
=> return the google search page

<?lc
put url("https://www.google.fr")
?>
=> return nothing

Regards,
jihem

Hi jihem,
I'm not a liveCode server user but this is how we solve it on desktop/mobile

Code: Select all

<?lc
libURLSetSSLVerification false
put url("https://www.google.fr") 
?>
Don't know if that will work for you.

Hi,
Thanks for the nice answer. Now, I get this error :

file "C:\Users\Jean-Marc\Desktop\UniServerZ\www\test.lc"
row 2, col 1: Handler: can't find handler (libURLSetSSLVerification)

May be "libURLSetSSLVerification" isn't available on LiveCodeServer... or I need to start a library first... ?

Sorry, I really don't know server stuff.
But the dictionary does say it's available for server.

There is an outstanding bug in the HTTPS support in LIveCode Server - http://quality.runrev.com/show_bug.cgi?id=14262

Thanks Peter. I add myself to the CC list. I hope this will be resolved soon.
Right now, I will try to use the curl command...

curl is good, and so is wget. Different syntax, very similar options. curl is installed on most OS X systems, but wget is not. On Ubuntu and some other Debian-based distros, wget is installed but curl is not. Since all of my servers run Ubuntu, I tend to use wget.

Given that both wget and curl are written in C, you should find overall throughput more efficient than using libURL.

The main advantage of libURL is that it allows us to use one set of calls for all platforms. This can be very useful on clients, but not often needed on servers.
