[<<<] [>>>]

On UNIX operating system using Apache is very popular. You can use the ScriptBasic command line version to execute ScriptBasic programs as CGI processes. Although this approach is powerful there is another solution using the Eszter SB Engine. You can run the Eszter SB Engine on the same machine as the Apache web server or on a different machine and using the Apache rewrite and proxy modules you can proxy all .bas URL requests to the Eszter SB Application Engine. This way you have a full-featured general purpose web server and extremely fast execution of ScriptBasic programs without the need of spawning new processes for each request.
