on-rev choosing engine

Thanks, I'll try this and see what I can figure out.  It seems though that
the server engines aren't there. (not found) type errors.  Using the info
from that lesson, there should be an engine at
/cgi-bin/livecode-server-4.6.3 for example.  (or any version based on the
same format, with the exception of the default (7.0.1) which is at
/cgi-bin/livecode-server according to the lesson, and the irev version is
in a different place too.  )

Then it goes on to give the example as in 4.6.3 which matches the
description of how things are named/placed.  But its not there.  When
running standard, no .htaccess, the livecode-server is located at

/usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/livecodeserver-7.1.0/livecode-server

So it appears that the lesson is wrong here too, and that the handler for
.lc files would point to /cgi-bin/livecodeserver-7.1.0/livecode-server
rather than as described.

I thought maybe things were the same, so tried with
/cgi-bin/livecodeserver-4.6.3/livecode-server but thats a no.  I also did a
shell call, when doing shell("ls
/usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/livecodeserver-7.1.0/  the files are there as
expected.   When doing the same for livecodeserver-6.4.3 the directory
doesn't exist. All this would be made easier if I had permission to ls
/usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/ to look at whats there, but thats not possible.

I'm guessing the scriptalias points to /usr/local/cpanel/cgi-sys/ so if
anyone has a clue how things are actually named for LC server versions
underneath that, that actually work, I'd appreciate the info. Otherwise,
I'll msg support and ask there.
