Getting Started

Post by hrcap » Fri Feb 08, 2019 10:43 pm

Good Evening All

Last month I signed up to the LiveCode cPanel service and have since managed to get LiveCode on a mobile device to pull info directly from a mySQL database on cPanel.

The next stage is for me to learn how to use the LiveCode server to ensure that the data on the mySQL is accessed securely... However I cannot find any information on where to start, the LiveCode hosting sales website says that the documentation for 'getting started' will be on cPanel but I cannot find it anywhere.

Any ideas?


Many Thanks

I think what you are looking for is "middleware", basically you want to move the portion of the code that interacts with the DB to a server side script, so as not to hard code your credentials into the app itself. It seems that this is done most often with PHP, but there is more info and a simple example LC server script in this thread:
