Hey-

Just a thought, since it appears a few people had problems installing on VPS's, and it appears that all was solved with EgoAnts solution, Perhaps this thread, or one with just the solution could be stickied, or perhaps added to the documentation.

Heya- Couple of things- 1) Unless you are specifically needing something that is offered in the enterprise version of windows server, skip it. SFS will run just fine on whatever version of windows you wish to run(even vista with a few caveats) , and i doubt win enterprise will offer any benefits ove...

As to the is it dangerous for two extensions to communicate with the DB manager, that question is a bit more tricky. The short answer is YES. Due to the way smart...

java - Room - getUserCount vs howManyUsers

Hey-

Quick question, in the server side java api i see getUserCount and howManyUsers.

What is the difference, if i go by there names, they would appear to be the same. They also both return an int. howManyUsers lacks a description in the docs though....

Thanks

Heya-

You can not use AS2 or 3 to connect to a DB via SFS. You can use Java, Python, or AS 1.

The client side examples may be written in as3, but the server side code remains the same regardless of what your client is using.

Hope that helps.

Yes, it is.

Though it is also possible to use the pro edition itself to log into a DB server and check as well if that is your intention.
