This tutorial provides a step-by-step guide to deploying Xojo web apps on a Linux server. You’ll find deployment of more complex web apps can follow the same basic principles. If all of this seems too complex, Xojo Cloud is the easy, powerful and secure way to deploy web apps.
You can package your Xojo Web Apps in a Docker Image. That allows you to run an instance of your applications easily in a Docker Container. Docker provides the infrastructure to host the apps, start/stop them, switch between image versions – and much more.
Here’s the configuration document for getting puTTY to connect to the Xojo Cloud database. You might want to note that while Windows 10 now includes a SSH client it doesn’t support SSH tunnels very well due to always executing a connection command.
Based on recent conversations with a couple Xojo users, here are a few quick tips for uploading and working with SQLite and MySQL databases on Xojo Cloud.
If you aren’t already familiar with Xojo Cloud, it’s simple, secure, maintenance-free hosting for your Xojo web apps.
Our vision for Xojo Cloud is a simple, one-click deployment option for your web app. Xojo Cloud allows you to focus on developing your app instead of dealing with the nitty gritty details of web hosting and security. Xojo Cloud has tons of new stuff to compliment apps built with Xojo 2020r1!
Since I’ve been asked about this by new and current Xojo Cloud users, let’s cover some basic best practices for everyone. Don’t ping or port…
Most Xojo Cloud users have already switched to the newer Xojo Cloud servers. These new servers have more RAM and SSDs and are the priced lower or the same as our previous servers. But moving your projects from one server to another is easier said than done. You’ll need to plan carefully to avoid downtime. Here is a simple change you can make to your DNS settings in order to limit downtime, making the move to a better server smoother.
The Cloud is everywhere these days. And lots of companies offer Cloud products or services. Why should you use them?
If you are just starting the development of your first web app you may be wondering if you need to get a Xojo Cloud server right away. In most cases, the answer is no. You can develop your application on your own computer and sign up for a Xojo Cloud server when you are getting close to deployment and are ready to test in as close to a real world situation as possible.
There are differences of course between how a web app will execute on your computer with a single user (you) versus on a server that is anywhere from hundreds to thousands of miles away with many users connected all at the same time. For the most part, you don’t have to think very much about this but there are areas where you should.
Keep the following 3 things in mind when developing without a cloud server.
