Can others confirm for us that if Stephen's ISP can support CGI, will that
be enough?  I assume also that he'll need to know whether the host O/S
platform is too.

You are correct that I plan on using a ISP and I do not know what my
permissions are. I will check this morning.
My "local computer is not connected to the web on a full time basis, so
could not be used for a host.

Thanks for the reply

Hi Stephen, Congratulations on being able to make the next step!  The
simplest scenario would be to duplicate your ms4w and maplab setups to
this external server - it depends what you mean by external and what
kind of access/permissions you have.  Do you have access to installing
programs on the web server?  I'm assuming you have an account with an
ISP that you want to use which usually is pretty limited.  That could be
tricky and not very profitable, others on the list will probably know

There are some mechanisms that would allow you, if possible, to have an
external web page calling on mapserver on another computer - if your
"local" computer is accessible via the internet, this may be the best
way to go.  But, granted, I'm not familiar with your setup.  Let us know
some more.

To the list

I have been working with ms4w and MapLab using the apache server on my
computer. Now I want to move the present results and future work to my
web site. Can some one on the list point me to instructions on how I set
up mapserver on my external web server.

Thank You

Stephen Wallace
