running SFS on my computer

Postby kouri » 09 Feb 2006, 00:20

Hi,

I try to setup SFS on my own PC (with IIS) as a server able to manage my swf located on my website but I didn't find any doc.

on dec 2003, Lapo wrote :
"Also we're considering the idea to add a small webserver to SmartFoxServer either as a separated software or embedded in SFS.."

Is a server (like IIS or APACHE...is still required to makes SFS accept requests from another server ?

Thx for your answer.

Humm... I am not sure if I completely understand your question, anyway I think I got it.

Actually you always need 2 servers for publishing an online multiplayer application:

1) The web server (apache / IIS) > where you store all the swf files and other html pages if necessary

2) Multiplayer server (smartfoxserver) which will handle all the multiuser interaction

The 2 servers not necessarily must be installed on the same server machine.

We have plans to add an embedded webserver to SFS after we release the new, upcoming version 1.4.0

Hi Lapo,

That post is to be linked to the one called "restart sfs" :D
As my ISP refused to host SFS I decided to make it run on my PC.

So I'd like to keep all my web pages on my host as usual but configurate swf games to target my own PC (which stand a fixed IP).

In this case swf are still located on my ISP website (which uses Linux)
Does I still need to set up IIS to make SFS run on my XP computer ?

Nope, no need to run IIS if your files on the Linux server :)
