Presently this documentation is intended mainly for developers, who
are already experienced in programming with EASY (Turbo Datenbank or
Visual Data Publisher).
For CGI-programming you don't need to have internet access. You can
develop and test all programs offline. You can create an environment,
which simulates the behavior of a normal web-server exactly. But
you can also program in the web without the long way
of ftp-up- and -downloads. At present we support following
Win NT (x86)
Besides the tdbengine-package, you will also need a
http-server like apache or iis. There are many http-servers
around, with a majority being free, but several cost a hatful
of money. The most popular http-server Apache is freeware.
Before you can get busy with the installation of the
tdbengine-package, you must install an operational http-server on your
computer. In addition you'll need any one webbrowser (Netscape,
Explorer or others).
Test your system, by calling the URL: http:/localhost/ in
your browser (without being online). The start page of your
server should appear now.
This documentation is available is Russian, too.
The texts are not up to date at all, but might help you to get the first foot into the door.
