I am new user working with MapServer, couple of questions. I am
working with the linux and windows version.
I am going to have to assume that ArcSDE support is not included by
default with the windows version. I am testing a linux version and I
compiled it just fine ArcSDE-8.3, what is the simplest way to include
arcsde support in the windows version?
Can I just drop another dll in the lib directory, or do I have to
compile all of MapServer?
I also included the PDFLib support, downloaded the latest version, I
am assuming installed by default with the windows version.
Next question, for the windows version, what is the easiest way to use
MapScripts if you have limited control over your network. What
scripting languages provides the easiest install? PHP/Perl/Python? I
think the php looks like the easiest option for IIS?
Last question, does mapserver operate in a server mode, for example,
can it bind to port and have a start/stop option. Ideally I wish I
could run mapserver on once machine and send requests back and forth.
