Server Scripts Editor

So let's say I have a file on my server called "mine.lc". It's a text 
file that contains some LC code and looks like this in a text editor:

<?lc
set the errorMode to "inline"
start using stack "/home/myaccount/www/mystack.livecode"
?>

The "mystack.livecode" file is just a normal stackfile whose stack 
script might look like this:

on libraryStack
     put the long time & "<br>" & the systemVersion
end libraryStack

So when you go to "http://myserver.com/mine.lc" you'll see the output 
from the stack's script in your browser, something like this:

1:09:45 PM
Linux 3.2.45-grsec-2.9.1-r3+

I hope this isn't so elementary it offends you! Mostly I hope it 
clarifies the relationship between your .lc file and your stackfile on 
the server.

I've built an entire training management system using this approach, so 
it will support any level of complexity you need. Just like the desktop, 
only different!
