Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    Re: Abyss Server X2 now has reverse proxy built in

    The free x1 version doe not offer reverse proxy support.
    Anyway, when Alpha releases IIS support this will probably no longer be an issue as IIS supports multiple host headers

      This is true of course just to the Alpha Anywhere version(s) that supports IIS.



      Any way there is new version available and support for Alpha Five has been especially improved

        I would suggest contacting Abyss customer support, they have been very helpful and prompt every time I have contacted then.

            Re: Abyss Server X2 now has reverse proxy built in

            One major advantage in version Abyss x2 is the abilty to run http/https (dual host support) . That means that ssl is installed in Abyss and Was continues to run in for example port 83 (no ssl activated)

            If user want to ssl traffic then the url is https://yourdomain.com/was/... and without ssl http://yourdomain.com/was/....

            Somebody may be interested also the fact that Abyss x1/x2 can run also asp.net (web froms). I am using asp.net captcha and works great.

            Also cookies are carried from server to server (from Abyss to proxy servers).

            So this kind of configuration is possible with Abyss X2. All in same server and same domain.

            https or http://yourdomain/php/....
            https or http://yourdomain/asp.net/....
            https or http://yourdomain/xbasic/....

            It is good to notice that the above combination works in same domain. So no problem with same origin policy.

            This is all for version Was11. V12 i do not know anything.

              I have the same setup on X2. The web app server demo comes up but whenever an callback is made, nothing happens. No errors, just not functioning. If I turn off abyss all works fine.

              Just sent a message to Abyss support. I'll let you know what I find out

                        Re: Abyss Server X2 now has reverse proxy built in

                        Hello Abyss experts:

                        I have tried setting up Abyss reverse proxy on my server with AV12 but am not having much success. Here's my current setup and what I have tried so far:
                        --
                        (1) http://174.121.170.145:8080/asq/index.a5w -- works as is.
                        (2) Alpha 12 server on port 8080
                        (3) Abyss server on port 80
                        (4) Domain www.asqvi.com is registered with GoDaddy and forwarded to http://174.121.170.145/asq
                        (5) On the Abyss console, I have www.asqvi.com configured as an additional host on port 80
                        (6) A reverse proxy rule has been created on www.asqvi.com host name with: local virtual path "/asq", remote ip "174.121.170.145, remote port "8080", and remote virtual path "/asq/index.a5w"
                        --
                        With this setup, I thought that Abyss would automatically re-route www.asqvi.com to http://174.121.170.145/asq/index.a5w in the background but it doesn't -- http 404. There is clearly something wrong with my approach but need some help solving this riddle.

                        Thanks in advance.
                        Andrew

                          I have it working, somewhat, and have used it for testing a couple of different configurations. My setup is below.

                          reverse proxy setup
                          Local Virtual Path = /Demo
                          Remote IP = the ip i want to redirect to
                          Remote port = 80
                          Remote virtual path = / (I've used others here such as /test or /project as well) Note I don't use a page here, just the path.
                          check both boxes in advanced parameters

                            In order to accomplish this my xbasic code looks at the request and determines which webpage to generate. At this time only have 2 websites on it and have not done any kind of load analisys, but believe I could handle infinite number by just adding hardware.

                            i am very interested in reproducing what you have done above. Are we able to make contact outside of the message board to discuss - mike@dbgurus.co.nz
