Great! thanks for this feedback, I am glad it worked for you.
I only ran into trouble when we wanted to update Mapbender and run he
app/console commands which seams not to be possible with php fcgi.
We downloaded php in the end and used the php.exe to rund the
It would be very helpful to me if you could file an MS4W ticket and
state the exact commands and the problems that you had, and then I can
fix that for the next release. Please file the ticket at
Now the question is:
1. can we provide a description at ms4w page somewhere? Or did I miss
Yes of course. You can see a list of the applications at
http://www.ms4w.com/README_INSTALL.html#ms4w-applications but if you
want more details added, please send me the notes in Restructured Text
format (.txt) and I will add it to that README (so it will be visible
both online, and included in each installation).
2. Can we provide a text-file in the download package to provide
yes, definitely. A normal .txt file is perfect. I will include that in
the Mapbender3 package.
3. Can we provide information about Mapbender3 here?
yes, maybe your questions 1) and 3) can be combined: provide me a
restructured text file containing Mapbender3 notes, and I can point to
that inside the README, and also point to it on the download page. Is
ms4w makes it easy to use Mapbender and get it running. But if you want
more complex features (new database, search, digitizer, your own
template) you will need some background information.
What do you think?
Agreed. Let me know how to proceed.
thanks for this momentum! :)
