Re: Sessions on XAMPP no go, Live ok.

Would a raspberry be faster then the VPS i now run?
Most likely, with the added benefit of being an always-on local server that could be used for other various tasks or projects (plex server, file server, etc)

Re: Sessions on XAMPP no go, Live ok.

A raspberry pi with Ubuntu 18.04 server would make a nice little LC Server Development Box:

Re: Sessions on XAMPP no go, Live ok.

have you tried (just for debugging) to set the folder permissions to 777, or whatever the windows equivalent of the is (writable by everyone)

Re: Call Script from within script on server

Yep. You can make your page a regular webpage unless there is something specific is posted to it. Something like: <?lc --if this is a db connection request, get it and exit put $_POST["INSTRUCTION"] into t_instruction if t_instruction is not empty then include "connect/dbconnect.lc" quit else --if t...

Re: Toolbar and KDE

Although I have since switched to using Unity rather than KDE, I had a functioning solution, which was when working with LC to have a separate desktop for working with Livecode and only Livecode. In fact, I seem to recall that KDE allows you to name your desktops so I had development, office, etc.

Re: WP REST API Plugin - How to actually use it?

I had a quick look and noticed that this has not been updated since 2016. Wordpress went through some pretty major updates last year. I would be hesitant to invest much time or effort into anything that has not kept pace with those changes. Was there something specific you were trying to do? There a...

Re: Access Raspberry Pi to read data.

you could just write a bash script and then call it from Livecode like: put shell("./functions/yourscript) into tScript if you have variables you need to pass, you just send them to your bash script: put shell("./scripts/yourscript var1 var2") into tScript and then your bash script can read those: #...

Re: Setting up in shared host environment (Dreamhost)

@FourthWorld you are right! I just wanted to point it out as an option.

I used to use DreamHost quite a bit, but once I discovered how to use a VPS it dramatically changed how I set up projects. I wish someone had mentioned the possibility to me earlier in my life.

Re: Setting up in shared host environment (Dreamhost)

How married are you to Dreamhost? It is probably possible to get LC working, but using a VPS from somewhere like DigitalOcean or Linode is a little better for doing things like this, although initial setup is a little more complicated since you have to install from scratch. However, once you have it...

Re: Access Raspberry Pi to read data.

In my original setup, I had an old Linksys WRT54g router with a couple of large antennas. You can find those routers at thrift-stores for a few dollars and install dd-wrt on them. The antennas un-screw and can be replaced with larger, more powerful antennas. That router can be ran on 12v (solar pane...

Re: Access Raspberry Pi to read data.

I have a project I am working on that involves an OrangePi set up out in a field (literally out in a field) and I use one of these things: https://hologram.io/nova/ plugged into the Pi to send small chunks of data to a server where I have Livecode Server running...which collects that data and does a...

Re: Getting started on LiveCode server

I wanted to post and let you know I am still working on a basic framework to post for people to use as a starting point. The topic comes up quite often, so I wanted to have a good working example of interacting with Livecode, Livecode Server, and a Database. It will probably take me another week to ...

Re: Getting started on LiveCode server

Eventually you will probably want to use a framework like Revigniter, but it is my opinion that you would progress much faster in this if you start by writing your own structure or copying a basic structure and getting the hang of how website applications work. I have a basic structure that I use as...

Re: Getting started on LiveCode server

It sounds like you just described a CMS or web-framework. For a Framework, Revigniter looks promising, but I have not used it yet: https://revigniter.com/ I do not think there is a Livecode CMS at the time, but I seem to remember someone writing some Livecode/Wordpress API. I think this is it: https...
