Hello all

I've read everything I could on setting up on the web.

1/ I've enabled WebCompanion

2/ I've enabled web sharing

3/ I've been using instant web publishing and now the database works when I test it using http://localhost/

4/ Now how do I access it from another machine?

The next step is not clear. Becasue I can call it using http://localhost/ I'm assuming all the cgi scripts have been written but I can't find them in the web folder in fM5.

Are they stored elsewhere or do I have to actually write them again?

Has this 'format file' been written for me or is this something I have to create myself?

Basically I'm a little stumped.

Any help is really appreciated.

Best regards

Drew

Drew,

You can access the database from another computer by using the url with the host computers IP address:

http://ipaddress/

This is assuming that you are using TCP/IP networking.

If you are using Instant Web Publishing the pages are generated from within the system. If you are using Custom Web Publishing the pages you write are stored in the Web folder.

Hope this helps.
