Web Server Help

Post by agraham147 » Fri Jun 11, 2021 8:18 pm

Hi guys,

Over the past few years I've made a scoring/tournament management system for snooker. It consists of a couple of applications: a server application which takes care of tournament draw sheets, player information etc, and a scoring application to score the matches.

I would like to be able to create a website/web server with LiveCode so that the server application can send and display live scores, tournament info etc on a website for people to see.

How do you go about doing this with LiveCode? Is it HTML5 for web apps, or LiveCode server to create what I'm looking to achieve?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Aaron

There are quite a few ways to do this. Livecode Server sounds like a good fit to me, though. LiveCode hosting isn't the cheapest option around, but it comes with LC preinstalled and ready to go.

When trying to get my first LC App to LC Server system working - I found this to be a very useful starting point.

Thanks for the help guys. Now I have another issue.

I've bought a livecode hosting license (cPanel). I've created a SQL database and created a user under my name. I've copied the tutorial on how to open a connection to a database from within an application at https://lessons.livecode.com/m/4071/l/1 ... -Database-

I've checked my code and there are no syntax errors (or spell errors with my username, password etc.), but it keeps coming up with "Access denied for user. (using password: "YES")". Also something else about btcentralplus.com. What does this mean?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
