I have been using Quanta Plus for a while and I been able to save and create file on a remote server that runs on apache. I just installed apache on my machine. I tested the [localhost...] and I get It Works just fine. But I cannot seem to save my projects in apache www folder. I don't if I created the project correctly. Some please help.
I like Quanta too,
I knew that it usually comes bundled with pack such as RH
I am curious, did you install it as stand alone?
if so where did you grab it from?
Well, I guess I found my answer, was looking for a windows realease (I should have said so!) but there is not such a thing.[/edit]
A few easy steps:
1) Edit httpd.conf ( as root user ) and point DocumentRoot to /home/yourusername/public_html
2) symlink the public_html folder to your real project folder
ln -s /home/yourusername/yourproject /home/yoursername/public_html
Now you can have multiple projects and switch back and forth by recreating the symlink.
ln -s /home/yourusername/NEWproject /home/yoursername/public_html
There are other ways to accomplish this but IMO this is the easiest unless you are switching back and forth very frequently.
Give it a go!
Btw, I'm a Quanta user too :) Actually, Henry I think you turned me onto it in another post here :)
Thank you. I did that and it works.
But here is something that confuses me. when I create a project, shouldn't I specify the protocol as "ftp" and the host as "localhost". Or does that only works if the server is on another machine? That is not what I did right now, but it works. As long as it works, right?
But thanks for help
I installed Quanta from Synaptic Package Manager. Everytime I started running it, it said that I needed to install other applications for me to get full capabilities of Quanta and I did. Those applications are, Kompare, KImageMapEditor, Cervisia, and KLinkStatus.
