[REBOL] Re: ARRG...IIS/PWS - Help configuring erebol

From: gavin:mckenzie:sympatico:ca at: 17-Feb-2002 16:31

I think that you summed things up pretty well. Fact is that I have to touch a variety of systems, some M$-based, some not. Apache and IIS are the two that I deal with on a regular basis. This specific application makes use of the tight integration between IIS and M$ SQL Server 2000 -- I can query the database with an old fashioned HTTP GET with the query embedded in an URL, and get back a XML result set ready to be turned into HTML with some help from REBOL. this specific case, I don't have a choice on the server. And, adding more frustration to all of this, I have configured this successfully before. Configuring IIS or PWS to call REBOL for CGI processing is a piece of cake. The fun begins when you want to configure it for REBOL Server Page duty. Otherwise, when not using IIS, I do understand the beauty of the 'shebang' approach. I used *nix years before my hands ever graced a Windows box. No worries. I'm not annoyed by your suggestions. I am blinded with annoyance that I didn't jot down the %#^%#!! syntax that worked previously. Of course, having an image of my system disk would've helped me too, rather than exclusively paying attention to backup policies for the data hard-drives in the system. Gavin.
