[archive] Updating Via Web Site

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 06 March 2008]

I want to be able to let users download updates to our software package, and for these updates to be applied where we want them (i.e. correct directories etc.).

Is there any standard thrid party stuff that makes this easy?

Is it something that should be done using AcuWeb?

Any suggestions or examples gratefully received.

You could accomplish this by implementing the ftp protocol using c$socket. There is an example of implementing an ftp protocol using c$socket in one of the newsletters.

Keith,

I am interested in the accomplishing the same thing. Did you find something? Or did you use C$socket?

Thanks,
Rob

RE: [archive] Updating Via Web Site

I played with c$socket for a while - it kinda works but is not very elegant. I have not looked lately but find it difficult to believe there is not a standard piece of software out there to do this. If you find anything - let us know.....
