How to look into collection from internet?

Postby Cally » Wed Apr 13, 2016 11:13 am

Hello everybody,

how do you look into your catraxx collection from internet?
I tried the html-export but it didn't satisfie.
Now I use a php-script which needs a text-file exported from catraxx. That's not bad.
Now I'm thinking about a mysql-db on the server. Has anyone experiences or solutions?

Cheers from germany

You can use Dave's brilliant solution, Catweb. It's intended for LAN use, but you can easily make it viewable externally if you know what you're doing with port forwarding.

I've been using it for years and it works beautifully.

Dave posts here as well if you have questions about Catweb. I'm sure he'd recommend against opening a port for it unless you're competent with security, but if you're working with php and mysql you probably have the know how.

Hello,

sorry for bringing up this thread after such a long time.
But now I've had a little time to look at catweb.
Is it possible to run catweb only on my webspace or must it run on my home-network?
In other words: is there a possibility to upload catweb and the catraxx mdb to my webspace, so that it can run completely online?

It is possible but the server will need to be running CATraxx, and CATweb, and Windows. This is not a typical setup for a commercial web server. I run CATweb on my home computer and have not ever tried to install it on a "hosted" server machine.

CATweb is not hardened against attacks by hackers so you must be aware of this and be very careful if you expose CATweb to the internet.
Cheers,
Dave
