Will amember run on a Windows 2003 server or does it require Linux ?
aMember can work on Windows, but you need to install Apache webserver. aMember does not work under MS IIS.
Are there certain functions that are Apache specific that we may not need and could still run it on IIS? I saw another post where someone has it running on Windows with no problem. We would like to use this for several customers, but we have no linux servers.
Folders/pages protection will not work, because it is based on .htaccess/.htpasswd files and Apache-specific functions.
Everything else - members registrations, payments, integration plugins - will work on IIS.
What about IIS with the IISPassword filter added to it? IISPassword adds .htaccess/.htpasswd features to IIS.
I think it is possible to make it working, but little manual work will be required.
Also, you will need free Zend Optimizer or ionCube Loader installed. Please check with http://amember.com/downloads/tester.zip
I tried it but it doesn't work. It seems as if the .htpasswd file created by AMember is not understood by IISPassword. They seem to encrypt the passwords differently.
I think I am going to see if I can get it to work with URL Protector instead.
Try to use not-encrypted (plain-text) passwords, it can be enabled at aMember Cp -> Setup -> htpasswd. Then click aMember Cp -> Rebuld Db
i get this error:
Warning: opendir(\c:\punjabi site1\amember\): failed to open dir: Invalid argument in c:\punjabi site1\amember\admin\protect.php on line 278
Cannot open directory: \c:\punjabi site1\amember\
i run apache in server 2003. Any help will be apprecited. Thanks
Please edit file amember/config.inc.php
$config['root_dir'] = dirname(__FILE__);
$config['root_dir'] = "/punjabi site1/amember/"; // exactly as I wrote!
then try again.
