Just reinstalled clean and up to date copies of XAMPP, MariaDB and MongoDB on one of my home machines.
I need to write some RESTful PHP code that can run on my web hosting as the back-end for a VR game I’m playing with. This gives me a platform for building that code in a safe place.
I do need to stick to PHP 5.x features as my GoDaddy shared hosting does not support PHP 7.
I’ve got to get the basics stitched together, add an appropriate .htaccess to keep passwords out of inappropriate hands and then start working out a SQL schema that works for the persistent game data I need to store.
Spending a big chunk of this long weekend post processing pictures from our recent vacation (see them on the blog side of ninecrows if you’re interested). Watched the whole last season of Game of Thrones and saw Aladdin. Lots to still get done, but progress is progress 🙂
