Excellent! :D

After clicking the button "START SERVER"
Zone Alarm alerted me that LiveCode
wants to open port 8080. 

After authorizing this connection,
I pasted this in Google Chrome
new tab:


and there it is.
A welcome webpage served by 
mchttpd itself! :D
Just all images links are broken.

This page:
works really fine and now it's my
turn to experiment, change and
extend this basic example.

I just keep wondering:
Does exists a method to use Ralf Bitter's revIgniter
with this server?

By the way, inside the folder cgi-bin
there is a file named: link_MC_here-_
What does this means?

There is no explanation
in this page either:

The server script:
just produces a single character,
the number 1 after running.

Richard, many thanks again for updating and
reposting this stack from your archives!
