I am thinking about providing real time web access to our coach reservations
The reservations system is on Foxpro2.6 on a SCO Unix 5.0.2 server.
I am considering setting up the web server with FreeBSD, Apache and PHP.
Our reservations system is used by up to 60 operators almost 24 hours per
day via dumb terminals and telnet sessions.
I am interested in any experience anyone may have had with this type of
project and whether there are any major hurdles to overcome or limitations
of the OS's or the Foxpro RDMS.
In particular I am interested in any experience anyone may have had with
reading, writing, and locking Foxpro dbf's using PHP from the web server
while other in house users are doing the same via their terminals and telnet
sessions connected directly to the SCO Unix server. I have had some negative
experiences with locking Foxpro dbf's via NFS and as such I am wary about
Any comments at all would be greatly appreciated.
