    has anybody written any scripts to make apache web server work with synch user database?

    This question might be better categorized in the "Web Tech" sub-board.

    I haven't looked into that, but Apache only serves up web pages and files, it's not what connects your programming language to databases and such. What language are you developing your web stuff in (PHP, Python, etc.)? You would have to find a programming library made for that language that connects to
    the Synchronet user database.

    What is it that you want to do where you want to make Apache work with Synchronet's user database? Do you want to create a web page/app that lists your BBS user information? Synchronet already has a built-in web server and
    a set of web pages that can do this.

    As I mentioned earlier, Apache itself wouldn't be thing that does this. You would have to find a module/plug-in for your web development language that
    you use in conjuniction with Apache (PHP, etc.) that provides access to Synchronet's user database. I'm not sure that there is such a thing, but I could be wrong..

    Yes, I want to make Mysql work with synchs user database, show user activity,......ect....I think I know where to start but I was hoping somebody has already taken care of this just to make it easier on me. lol. as far as synchs web server, there are a few issues that i have with it and for this reason I do not use it. I am using joomla right now for the templates. I can write a site with html or asp but i have to connect my website with the bbs. I have a seperate website for our company that we are developing right now, the address is www.thepconline.com. I am trying to make something really cool for my bbs. Obviously with just the two of us here there will not be enough feedback here to help me accomplish this goal. I am doing this to help get this message base going. I have started carrying it on Lightning BBS. But anyway I think you understand now what I am trying to do.


    Thanks
