Hosting of uniGUI with Firebird

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am very new at this hosting business.  I have built a uniGUI application which is based on a Firebird Database which I can run successfully on an Apache Server across a LAN.  I now wish to make this available over the Internet so I require a hosting service.

Firstly I would like to experiment on a free service if that is possible.

How do I determine if they will run an Apache Server and configure it to my alias where my dll will reside.  I assume any web server can be cofigured for this.

How do I get them to configure the server to run an ISAPI module

How do I get them to run a Firebird server and how do I know the path to it to connect.

 

The only alternative is to use my own hardware but in today's age that sounds stupid.

 

Any suggestions

Hi 

I have registered with Amazon EC2 but feel quite intimidated.

I assume I have to use an AMI but which of the +1700 is the best for an Apache server, uniGUI application and Firebird database all running ion Windows.  How does one select the right one.

Also must I provide an Operating system for this deployment or is that part of the AMI?

 

If there is any advice specific to uniGUI and my requirements that would be useful as omst advice appears to be for UNIX, etc.

Hi Bennie,

 

you must use windows 2008.

 

Launch a new instance, then in the quick launch wizard select

the windows 2008 R2 base datacenter edition. Then you have

all what you need. When you run the instance install what you want.

 

We have installed firebird and then the IIS, thats all.
