[Server] create stack trouble

I tried this on a third party install not on On-rev.

I tried the create stack command and then to see if a stack was indeed
created I used the openstacks command.

put "newcompany" into tNewStackName
put "<p>Creating " & tNewstackName & "</p>"
create stack tNewStackName 

repeat for each line thisline in the openstacks
	put thisline & "</br>"
end repeat

The output shows two stacks are open Home and newcompany so the stack was
created in memory.

>From the 'create stack' documentation it says "The newly created stack is
not saved to a file until you explicitly save it. If you close it without
saving it, the stack disappears."

So I tried a save stack command to save it as a file.  This however did not

I tried a few variations

First try - just try the saving the stack.
save stack tNewStackName

Second try- perhaps it needs a path with a .livecode extension:
save stack tNewStackName as "newcompanystack.livecode"

Third try - perhaps it needs a full path:
put the defaultfolder & "/newcompanystack.livecode" into tfullstackpath
save stack as  tfullstackpath

None of these worked.

I checked the documentation for 'Save stack' and realized it is not
implemented on the Server platform.

I am not sure if there is another way to save a stack on server.
