Thank you, Pierre.

I guess all I have to do is replace the 5.0.2 file with the 6.1.0 file and restart.

>> 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)?

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.
