Can't install livecode server on xampp

Post by mister » Sat Mar 17, 2018 9:42 pm

i've been trying make Livecode server work with XAMPP 2.24 using the "latest" httpd.conf file on macOSX El Capitan using Livecode 8.13 with server 8.13. Yes, i have permissions. i've tried everything i could think of; i put the Add Handler inside the directory and outside it, etc i used an older livecode server 6_6_1. I even tried the user.config file based upon the livecode lesson(the link in the comments still doesn't work). Any help is appreciated.

ServerRoot "/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles"

#Listen 12.34.56.78:80
Listen 80
ServerAdmin you@example.com
ServerName localhost

<Directory />
AllowOverride none
Require all denied
</Directory>

DocumentRoot "/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs"
<Directory "/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks ExecCGI Includes
AllowOverride All
Require all granted
AddHandler livecode-script .lc
Action livecode-script /livecode-cgi/livecode-community-server
</Directory>

ScriptAlias /livecode-cgi "/applications/xaamppfiles/cgi-bin/livecode-community-server"/livecode-server

<Directory "/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/cgi-bin/LiveCodeCommunityServer"
AllowOverride All
Options ExecCGI Includes
Require all granted
</Directory>

I have not ever tried on a mac, but on a typical apache web-server you also have to install a few extra modules like:

sudo a2enmod cgi
sudo a2enmod alias
sudo a2enmod actions

ghettocottage,

Thanks for the reply, i looked and there is a folder called "modules" which contain those. i assume that Apache can access them. i almost had the program work. The html almost always shows up, but one time the livecode output showed without the html text.Go figure! i've Googled for answers and tried everything i know. It will probably end up being a quotation mark out of place.

i'll try a little longer or maybe some one will know the answer. i just can't believe there isn't an updated lesson for this.
Thanks again,
Larry

There are too many server configurations for any single CGI engine maintainer to provide documentation for them all.

What's needed to use LC Server as a CGI is not much different from using any CGI not already included in a particular server.

You may have good luck searching among XAMPP resources for instructions on setting up CGIs in that config.
