Hi Kee,

I probably don't understand your reply. You overestimated my intelligence ;-)

Maybe it's LiveCode Server I want to know about.

I don't know how to set up and maintain my own server. Probably a bad idea to try to learn. Will others do this for me for a fee?

Tim

I run in on a port other than 80 because I don't want to disable Apache (remember it is it's own web server). The big disadvantage is that it is one user at a time. Command comes in and gets replied to before the next command can come in and get processed. The big advantage is that I can run it in the IDE and step through the code.
