Are you using LiveCode to create server scripts or CGIs?

Install Livecode Server on Windows with Windows Server 2016

Hi
How can I install Livecode Server on a Windows server with the Windows Server 2016 operating system?
Is that even possible?
Greetings Volker

I am not sure if it is still possible with IIS. I´ve done an installation long time ago on a 2003 Server.

But if you do not need to rely on IIS you could install apache on Server 2016 to use with Livecode Server.

For a first test you could use XAMPP from Apache Friends. It´s an all-in-all package with Apache, MariaDB, PHP and Perl.

Installation of LC Server then is as described in the Release Notes of LC Server.

Thank you for your answer. I rented the server from Strato and only the Windows Server 2016 operating system is possible.

Do you need to run IIS as web server? If not i really recommend to install Apache, PHP, MariaDB using Xamp and then install Livecode Server.

Please excuse, thought you would know the abbreviation.

IIS is the Microsoft Internet Information Server which acts as web server.

When allowed by the provider to install on the windows server, my advice would be to use Xamp. I have worked with it in the past on Windows and it works fine, is free and there is a lot of documentation.

Paul
