> Hello everyone,
> I'd like to get into some LiveCode Server scripting, and I have a few starter questions. I installed server version 5.0.2 quite some time ago on my Mac, which has a static IP address. The server works. Is 5.0.2 still current or is there a newer version? Is it still true that the server will only run legacy stacks (version 2.7)?
Last downloadable available server version : 6.1.0 can open/save both normal and legacy stacks. Works, at least, perfectly fine under Linux and OS X (Windows untested).
> Lastly, my students will be submitting stuff via web forms, and the server will process their submissions and dump the data onto my hard drive. I want to create a folder, e.g. Student Data, for that purpose in one of the user accounts on the Mac. How do I specify the path to the folder in my server stack scripts? I had trouble with this in the past. I suspect that it has to do with permissions or the Apache conf file.
Create those directory inside your httpd app directory but outside the cgi-bin directory hosting your LC-Server executable and do your server handle the files in read/write as url (file://pathtofile) instead of url (http:// etc…). See the dictionary for details.
