Re: Mojolicious::Lite and Webperl

in reply to Mojolicious::Lite and Webperl

This sounds like an XY Problem for me.

Distributing a web application to every user to be capable to run an SQL query means that the access to the SQL-Server is exposed to everybody who looks into the HTML sources.

If you can't install a web application on your companies apache why don't you try to run Mojolicious standalone on another "private" host?

You can put a static page on your apache which redirects to this private server.

Your application doesn't seem to be heavy enough to exclude being run in Mojo's own webserver.

I really like seeing more apps running into webperl but this sounds weird.

    Thanks for commenting LanX

    We did what you outlined above: run the mojolicous daemon on a virtual server on a Windows pc, and link to the generated search page from the main site.

    The script is in my my scratchpad, and the interface is a just a form web page.

    And, yes: using one app that would be run in the browser using WebPerl would have the same problem as distributing an exe that would be run on every interested user'pc: how to prevent users from getting access to the mysql server directly.

      So your problem is solved now?
