Yes, the server is just a Xeon box running Windows 7 with XAMPP and nothing else. I would like to move over to a Linux distro but am not looking forward to the learning curve, and figuring out if a couple of mission-critical Windows apps could be made to run under WINE.
It would be greatly appreciated if someone could post instructions on moving a Windows installation to a Linux based server. I really don’t want to install Windows 10.
The database is whatever was installed by the 5.0.1 upgrade. It seems that the database engine was changed along the way, but I have not found clear explanations of just what changed between MySQL and the MariaDB modules.
The nest step will be to figure out what broke the LBF forms. I can access old records entered with custom LBF forms, but cannot create new instances of these custom forms. I can see their entries in the PHPMyAdmin tables, but cannot edit or implement them. Something didn’t copy over in the 4.X to 5.X upgrade.
I was waiting to see if the 5.0.2 upgrade would restore that functionality before investigating further.
