    Default vps localhost v. application server

    Hi,
    I have a GoDaddy vps and A5 installed on the VPS, running the application server from the Alpha 5 program. Now GoDaddy is complaining that I am using up too much cpu power because Alpha is running all of the time.
    Rather than go to a dedicated server, I installed the Alpha 5 version 8 Application Server.
    Now my alias must be incorrect. What was working before the app server was installed is not now working. I am getting the "error with table pointer" problem.
    The default folder for the web root is c:\a5webroot.
    What needs to be changed so I can turn the A5 program off and use the web server?
    Thanks.
    Jay

    You simply need to edit the Alias to be the physical location of the database. In your copy of Alpha Five, that was set to [PathAlias.ADB_Path] = =a5.get_path(), which is not valid for the App Server. Change it to :

    [PathAlias.ADB_Path] = c:\mydatafolder

    Your database can be, but should not be in c:\a5webroot. That is the location for the web files, not the database.

    Thanks for the help Steve.
    I think I did what you suggested, I republished the project, and still have the same results.
    I am attaching a screen shot of what I have set up.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks again.

    Go to View > Settings > Preferences > Web Publishing > Alias Resolution and change it to Publish Time. Unless it is already set as such, that will probably fix your problem. I typed that menu path from memory, been working too long at this!
