Ah... documentation...
I just looked at the release notes. Apparently Debian 7 and 8 are all 
that's officially supported. That's unfortunate.

and rereading your original post, I see you're looking at a "lesson" to 
figure this out. I assume that's

where I see the bewildering statement

"32bit libraries are required for LiveCode server to run on a 64bit 
Linux distribution"

I ran ldd on the server binary and I don't see any 32-bit dependencies. 
I assume that's an old statement in the lesson and should be deleted. 
Those instructions were written in 2013. I wouldn't trust them for any 
recent builds. I just assume that fiddling with .htaccess would get 
things working, the same as on other distros.

That said, I haven't tried to set this up on Debian so I can't really 
help with this. There is (now) a longer comment from Russell Martin on 
that lesson page, and it might help to follow his lead on that rather 
than the outdated lesson. Even Russell's comment, though, is from some 
six years ago, so YMMV.
