4 thats crazy...
And yes the setup for apache that comes with delphi is setup with a
listener and I have to develop with 2 different apaches on one
machine. (Found out the hard way when I tried to move all my
development stuff to an actual operations folder. delphi's apache
wouldnt recognize it due to directory restrictions)
Even so, I dont want to rely on dephi's apache because its not real
world, (I want to be able to deploy close to a mirror image of my
environment with all its needed files and dirs)
Right now I cant go straight from delphi development to program run
without getting an ibase connect error. To get around that at moment
I have a separate browser pointed at my operations folder (using the
other apache) and after my changes in Delphi I shift tab over to
browser to confirm its working as planned. I will have to hunt down
the gds32's..., but not critical. Crazy stuff!
Perhaps you have a better ideas
