    Default Web App Server-only version now available

    The Web App Server-only version of Alpha Five is now available. It is freely available to any Alpha Five user.

    This version does not require an Alpha Five license number, however it does need a Web Application Server license if you want it to accept non-local connections. Without a Web App Server license, it will only accept local connections which allows it to still be used for testing.

    Lenny,

    I read quite a long exchange on another portion of the forums about this software and I'm sure you are very tired of discussing it, but for my clarification, would you mind if I ask you one more question?

    If I'm looking at this correctly, this database serving software is something I, as a developer, can purchase and consider a "cost of doing business" item. I can also use this server software to host databases for several different clients. I can possibly make back the cost of the software by charging my clients a monthly fee to host their data.

    Am I correct in the above assumptions?

    Greg

    Yes Greg, you would be able to host sites for customers and charge a monthly fee.

    Thanks for the clarification Lenny. Is the cost ($699.00)a "one time" thing?

    Thanks again,
    Greg

    yes, $699 allows you to serve applications to an unlimited number of users from a single server. This license is not subscription based and does not expire.

    How does this independent version link with Version 5. It seems to be standalone and not connected to work as in Version 6.

    It is basically a special V6 runtime that cannot open a database. You can install it on the same computer as V5, V6 or any other version of Alpha Five.

    Re: "Without a Web App Server license, it will only accept local connections which allows it to still be used for testing."

    Does this mean it will only accept connections From the SAME MACHINE IT IS RUNNING ON, or will it accept a connection across the office network, such as FROM a linux client?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    It will only accept connections from the "Local Host", which is the same machine the WAS server is running on.

    It will not accept connection from any other machine on your network or on the internet.

    From the same machine only.

    If you need to test from a Linux client before purchasing a license, you should contact Brett Johnston at 781-229-4500. He may be able to help you.

    I can tell you however that the user experince is exactly the same no matter the opearting system of the client. The web components are 100% standard HTML and do not use ActiveX or anything else that would be platform-specific.

    Is running the 'server-only' version the same as running A5v6 and starting the WAS without opening a database?

    Default Existing Alpha5 Web Server on "localhost"

    Will I be able to install this "localhost" server over the server I have already installed when I bought the bundle or do I have to un-install the current server? It's still in the 30 trial mode as I have installed it on my LAN server with the actual license.

    Thanx
