I am thinking about providing real time web access to our coach reservations system.
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 it's limitations. Any comments at all would be greatly appreciated.
