No. It needs it to talk directly to the database on the same host. The security is served by encrypting both the request and response. JS has a hole in it where the message can be intercepted while talking to php that I’m avoiding getting exploited.

Perfect. That will work nicely. You host doesn’t need to be anything special. As long as gzip can be enabled and is happy running JS then you just upload the LC emscripten js file and your standalone zip you’ll be good to go.

I would love this. I’ve been having enough trouble convincing the family to move from the south of England up to Scotland. Alaska, I fear, would be an even bigger sell. 

All the best
