Currently we are using 5 unlimited for our db on the web.  We are going to
redo are whole thing because are boss doesn'yt like the way it looks.  But
your pretty limited to what you can do with the web companion. I have
ordered Lasso and dremweaver to help with design part on the web.(Which I
have no idea on how to use)   I'm also looking at getting 5.5 unlimited.  Do
I need the developers edition???  I'm basically looking on giving me more
room to work with the design of 5.5 on the web.  Any suggestions????

In terms of design, the only advantage of 5.5 over 5.03 is (and it is quite
remarkable, actually) in the Instant Web Publishing. Dis-enable it to allow
for the full variety of custom page design, availabe via CDML, Lasso and
either Go Live or Dreamweaver.

The Developer Edition has nothing to do with the WC (its main uses are for
building stand alone apps, and/or files with their code "removed").

Unlimited is the same thing as FMP (client), but allows full deployment
(normal FMP is limited to a few TCP/IP hits per day), and, while it is
necessary for actually hosting a web site, is not necessary for development.

Neither Developer 5.5 nor Unlimited 5.5 have been released as yet.

No you aren't. You *are* limited if you use the Instant Publishing
option - see http://bull.ucc.usyd.edu.au/ for some databases done
using Custom Publishing.

Unless you are looking at some amazingly beefy backend system,
Lasso is probably overkill. Learn CDML first.

Dreamweaver is just a graphical HTML editor, although a very
good one.

No. See:

Also see http://bull.ucc.usyd.edu.au/fm_doit/  - aimed at
4.1, but the setup is broadly applicable to 5 as well...

But is the Unlimited version limited to the number of TCP/IP connections at
all, even if it is high?  And in saying that if I produce a 5.5 DB via the
web does that mean none of those users accessing it ned teh FMP client
installed on their PC?

No - that is why it's called "Unlimited"...

Via the web - they never have. 4.x has no limit, 5.x has no limit
(in the Unlimited version)...

I just thought I read somewhere on this ng that even though it says
unlimited it actually still has some limits.

Ok so what I want to do is be abel to create a solution using unlimited
(v5.5), then make it available via the web - using the companion built in -
and then have 400+ people access it - with no need to have FMP on their PC
or MAC - is that right?

What about developer - is that unlimited, ie I develope a solution using
developer make it avail via teh web and of we go with 400+ users

And whiel I am at it if I have a P3 900 running NT4sp6 with 256MB ram how
well would that run with concurrent users of up to 400 browsing records and
about 30 editing records?
