Installing LiveCode Server on CrazyDomains

Post by icouto » Sat Mar 19, 2016 7:40 am

Hi all,

Does anyone know whether it's possible to instal LiveCode Server on a CrazyDomains web hosting account? I've tried following the directions in the manual for setting it up via a .htaccess file, but without any success. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Ok, I seem to have managed to get LiveCode Server up-and-running on CrazyDomains, so I thought I'd document my steps here, in case they may be useful to someone else in the future:
  1. download the Linux-64 version of LiveCode Server
  2. upload and unzip it inside your hosting account's '/cgi-bin' folder
  3. change the permission of all unzipped files to '755' - i.e., enable execution
  4. follow the setup instructions from the official manual pages to setup a .htacess file
  5. follow the setup instructions from the official manual pages to setup a test.lc file
It works for me!
