We have a small business, a small chain of regional laundrettes. They all work with Software, written by myself in CPP/MFC which runs on XP on the counter and shop terminals. None of these terminals have anywhere ever been connected to the internet.
The Next project is to set up a system of access via the internet, so that customers can see the status of their orders, but, more importantly, that management gains access to a long list of info about what happens in the shop.
At first trials it shows that I need a different interface for mobile phones than for say LapTops. What must I do in say "index.html" to show the different pages dependent on the device.
The Next step is, that all CGI/ISAPI requests be passed on to my local server.
It will then be my task to write the software to produce a page on a customers phone or computer, from what the local db shows us. Happy to do that, provided whether I know if it is a phone or a Laptop.
Sounds like you need an Architecture/Design first.
Laptop and phone are generally very different devices and attempting to shoehorn an app that is well fitted for a laptop to a phone using claimed generic solutions do not work well. On the other hand if your functionality fits well on a phone completely then making it work on a laptop is easier.
Your 'server' will require a service application and that means it must run as a windows service. I think even XP allows the service to do nothing but run a batch file which makes that implementation easier but that doesn't give you much control. Otherwise you need to write an actual service. I suggest you become familiar with logging if you do not already use that.
On XP, of course, the server will be restricted by the memory.
You could use an html front end only if you restrict functionality in the front end. That should make things easier.
As the service provider if you want to remotely manage the device while providing a different experience for your users you might want to plan that from the beginning. You will need to plan for authentication and authorization and how you remove access when an employee leaves. That is a process question and not a technology one.
Well, first of all, thanks for your response.
If this is the incorrect forum, please advise me of the appropriate one if you know which that is.
The question was heavily condensed, I am taking on something very big.
I am not proposing to run a website on XP. Rather, we will have Win10 Gateway computers locally. These will receive requests via port 80, (the only port allowed by our ISP). This will result in a Proprietary database Queery on the XP Computer, returning a Proprietary result. The latter queery is resolved over the local (wired) network between the Win10 Internet Client, and the Local XP Database server. It is here, in the Internet Client where my ISAPI needs to know the nature of the device that sent the request, so that the ISAPI software can generate the HTML appropriate to the requesting device. (Which will be passed up the chain back top the original user).
We have also a large number of static (html) pages, containing essentially Text. Any idea how to make these universal for Phone and Computer?
Well, I have done big projects before. I wrote a suite of software for Laundrettes and dry cleaners, incorporating accounting systems etc. The next step is to get 'On Line' and provide our customers with details of their accounts, but, more importantly, to give in good time me and my partner access to the more intimate details of the business from a sunny beach in the bahama's.
Once I Discover how to distinguish between the two (Mobile or Computer)at the server end, I can redirect to the appropriate web pages. We have only 20 static ones,Very infrequently updated. not a difficult task to do manually. We do not advertise tru this page, we merely use it as an interface for our clients, to discover the state of their order.
I've just installed Windows 7 Home SP1 x64 into a Hyper-V virtual machine (Generation 1 on Windows 10 Pro).
The problem is that when I access the host machine via Remote Desktop, the mouse doesn't work inside the VM window. When I click inside the window, it pops up, "Mouse not captured in Remote Desktop session."
This is very frustrating not to to be able to use the mouse in the VM.
I've tried installing the VM Extensions, but they don't exist in the host machine. Googling tells me that the only way to acquire them is through Windows Update. But Windows Update is not giving them to me.
And the funniest thing of all is that the mouse worked fine from Remote Desktop during the Windows 7 installation! But now that the OS is installed, it's not working.
Does anyone have a clue what might be wrong here?
Thank you in advance.
The difficult we do right away...
...the impossible takes slightly longer.

I can't find anything similar to "Virtual Machine Settings" from my Google Cloud Console however.
I however see from Docker's doc - What's "Nested Virtualization"? Does it mean I can't run Dockers on VMs (In my case, a VM on Google Cloud), that it's not even officially supported?
"Docker for Windows can run inside a Windows 10 virtual machine (VM) running on apps like Parallels or VMware Fusion on a Mac provided that the VM is properly configured. However, problems and intermittent failures may still occur due to the way these apps virtualize the hardware. For these reasons, Docker for Windows is not supported for nested virtualization scenarios. It might work in some cases, and not in others."
I have created small Registration form application using Spring MVC and deployed in local machine. its working well
Then i have converted whole project in to war file "app.war" and deployed in amazon web server,its showing following error
The origin server did not find a current representation for the target resource or is not willing to disclose that one exists
I am new to networking and i am curious to find a way to write a script so that when the system IP address is set static, it must set back to dynamic IP address automatically when the system reboots. so I learnt how to do it manually but its a set of 30 Systems so i want to know if there is a way to write a script such that if the system has a static IP address it should be set back to dynamic IP address when the system reboots.
Is it possible to do this? Please let me know. Any help is much appreciated.
They've finally managed to completely piss off a friend of mine, and he wants to change hosts. He has a MVC5 web site for his business that I don't want to have to mess with (meaning I don't want to convert it to .Net Core) beyond migrating it over to the new host, so I'm looking for a Windows-based web host that is NOT part of the EIG family.
If anyone has any recommendations, I'm all ears.

I have a .NET MVC website live which also served as a test API - the solution both served standard web pages as well as API calls.
I decided that I wanted to separate the website and API so I now have two solutions.
I have amended the RouteConfig.cs for the website so that it no longer serves API routes.
How do I go about configuring things so that both the MVC website dll and the MVC API dll are accessible?
I uploaded the API dll and using postman I could see that the API service was not responding to the requests I sent.
I am guessing there is something I need to do with the web.congig or global.asax files that's as far as I have got so far(guessing... and some googling of course...).
Thank you for any help or direction in where to look for information - I don't think I have been asking the right question for Google searches so far.
I have now partly solved this by creating two projects within one solution and referencing the API dll from the main application, including a route mapping for the API within the non API project.
It's a bit messy but will do for the moment.

I have an application developed in asp.net c#.
Each time it's being tested, I get this same error over and over again.
My problem is that error page does not exist in my app any longer, but when being tested on the live environment, I get an error on the page I no longer have in my app.
The error reads below:
Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following parse error and modify your source file appropriately.
Parser Error Message: Could not load type 'warehouseDeliveryBookingSystem.Default'.
Are there Wordpress (or some alternative) hosting companies that could meet these requirements:
- Host many sites
- Has a backend that allows me to switch between the sites to edit/add pages quickly
- Has all of the same features as what I'm using on Wordpress.com's free version now.
Currently, I'm using Wordress.com's free version to get things set up. If I go through at site, I'll have to pay for each site annually, which pushes the up front investment to almost 4 digits after only 3 sites.
I'm unclear if there are advantages to going through Wordpress.com versus another hosting provider.
Are there plugin's that only Wordpress.com offers?
Does Wordpress.com take a portion of your advertising revenue if you have your site hosted there?
Are there hosting providers who offer additional functionality over worpress.com?
Are there Wordpress hosting companies that will host many sites with an interface like Wordpress.com or better?
Better is of course subjective. And it depends on what you actually want to do. There are a huge number of alternatives.
If you are targeting a specific industry/topic then finding a Content Management System that supports that would probably be helpful.
Naturally easy = simple and hard = powerful. So you will need to figure out what you needs are now and for the future. Might want to evaluate that first so you do not need to recreate everything in the future.
The chat functionality is developed on a PHP platform and we are using ratchet as our framework. when its hosted on a server with no SSL installed its working as expected. when SSL is installed on the same server, the functionality is not working. The error in back-end is connection time out. We tried steps given in different discussions is stack overflow, no help. Seems challenging !! Suggestions are most welcome, regarding the issue. Thanks in Advance.
Is this the appropriate place to ask questions and discuss the process (and vendors and prices and business aspects, etc.) of Domain Name Registration and Renewal ?
At the moment I have ten renewals facing me in three months from today, and I have this notion floating around in my head that a little advice here on CodeProject just might be worth the time spent in learning from some smarter people who know this stuff better than I do.
Anyway, does the title, "Hosting and Servers" include Registrars and Domain Names ?
Or is there a better place to ask folks who are smarter on that stuff ?
