My 2 cents… I use a server in a data center. That server runs windows and I use Abyss as my web server program. I have a number of different appStudio programs on the server under one root name. So, each appStudio program has to be put in it’s own sub-directory. To access a appStudio program on my server the following url is used:
I configure my ftp server (filezilla.com) to point to C:\xxx\htdocs. I then upload my appStudio doc files to ftp directory (which is in C:\xxx\htdocs…). I do this by configuring the appStudio Tools/Preferences.
I upload my project to a directory call backup-xxx. The actual web program is in a sub-directory in this directory named xxx.
This way, I can go thru all the motions, upload the file and then when I’m absolutely sure the new program is ready to go, I copy it to the root directory (htdocs) and over write the existing program. So in this case, the url to access my appStudio program is:
This is what I give my customers…
To manage my server, I use Teamviewer.com software. It’s similar to windows remote desktop. Tviewer makes managing the server soooo easy. I used to use a Linux ubuntu server and the command line interface is just too much work for me. I find a gui makes it soooo easy.
