    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 some

    I've actually wondered about Synchronet using a more standard database supporting SQL, for its user database & file database, etc.. I've also thought it would be nice to use a more standard web server (such as Apache) for Synchronet's pages. The problem is finding something that can tie them together.

    Bet you a dollar Digital Man knows how... he suggested something along the lines of how to do this on DoveNet awhile back. Shame I can't find or remember the post. I'll go look again. Wasn't too specific anyway, but he let on that it was easily or mostly possible with already-existing html and javascript.

    The problem I see with Synchronet's JavaScript and Apache is that Synchronet uses JavaScript as a server-side language, when JavaScript is more often used as a client-side scripting language (executed on the viewer's machine by their web browser). If you wanted to do that with Apache, you'd have to find an Apache module to let it understand .ssjs as a scripting language to execute on the server; and, you'd also have to set up the "glue" to provide Synchronet's JavaScript functions and tie it in with Synchronet's data.
