How do I upload a VB file to frihost?
mathiaus
Through FTP or the file manager in Direct Admin. Those files won't execute on the server though. Wink

Mathiaus already posted the answer to that question. Laughing

Basically, you can't execute any .exe files off the server at all.

As to why a VB .exe file would not run here: VB=Micro$oft, and FriHost runs Linux, so never the twain may meet, and that is a good thing.

what if u create a linux exeutable file (.rpm .deb etc...) ?

.rpm and .deb are Linux (respectively Red Hat and Debian) install files, not executables.

I do think a real Linux executable should work.

You should just be prompted to download the file. Your accessing the server from port 80 so everything will be handled by Apache, which wouldn't be able (or configured) to actually run the files.
(Just a guess)

Yes, but you could write a php script which runs it and outputs the program output.
(If it's text-based, this obviously doesn't work for GUI.)

A server can run an executable program, provided it is written for the right OS, and it is configured to allow it to run. A server would not automatically run a program when uploaded, of course.

Usually servers are set up to prevent execution of arbitrary programs as a security feature. In most cases, only programs in the cgi_bin directory are permitted to be run. On a shared server, usually only the server administrator can put files in the cgi_bin directory.

As already mentioned, a VB program (assuming we're talking VB6 or earlier) is a Win executable, and would not run on the Linux server, even if Bondings wanted to run it. But if we are talking about a VB.net program, the answer might be different. There is a version of the .net framework, called Mono, for the Linux operating system. While the Win version would not run, the program could be rebuilt with Mono, and would be capable of running on Linux. Not all .net programs will run under Mono yet, but they're working on it.

I'm pretty sure that executables have more to do with the client side than the host side: if you directly linked to a .exe file on a linux server, (depending on what browser software you use) you would be prompted with a download (or whatever), however, (obviously) the executable would not execute code on the server-side.
mathiaus
Frihost isn't here to have other executables run on it other than the ones Bondings specifies. You shouldn't be able to run them, but regardless of the ability to do so or not, you shouldn't (That's a warning not to try by the way Wink ).
