web server

One of the possible solutions would be to retrieve the available photo previews into a temporary local folder (keep in mind possible privacy issues), similarly as web browsers require to store web content locally to display it. Wget is a powerful yet simple tool to download content from web servers, supporting pattern matching of files being retrieved.

1) Determine the (potential) URL of the photos from the event of interest on FinisherPix (e.g. the Vienna City Marathon 2017 is apparently an event with the ID 1700, and photos being stored in the form https://fp-zoom-eu.s3.amazonaws.com/1700/1700_000064.JPG ).

2) Construct web content (resource) pattern for Wget (e.g. https://fp-zoom-eu.s3.amazonaws.com/1700/1700_*.JPG).

3) Download multiple available photos for the event of interest to a local preview all at once using Wget (e.g. by executing the command of the type wget -r -l1 -np "https://fp-zoom-eu.s3.amazonaws.com/1700" -P /tmp -A "1700_*.JPG").

Again, be aware of the possible privacy implications resulting from such workaround.

Download photo previews available on FinisherPix website for a particular event

FinisherPix (reachable at https://www.finisherpix.com/) offers a commercial service of providing photos (of and for the participants) of different (sport) events all around the world. After selecting the event of interest, there is a possibility to see all photos of that chosen event as previews (in a low resolution and with watermark on each of them) in the bunches of at most 16 photos per page (4 rows with 4 photos in each row). For the Vienna City Marathon 2017 there are in total 15771 pages (reachable at https://www.finisherpix.com/gallery/photobrowser/de/EUR/1700#All/All ), making it exceptionally time consuming to watch them (e.g. trying to find a particular participants of interest, who wasn't identified by his start number, etc.). The possibility to watch the photo previews available on the web server much faster at once would be very helpful.

Web server process running in the background needs to be closed

When working with web servers (such as Tomcat, Apache, etc.) their processes are usually started in the background and cannot be easily closed by Ctrl+C or the Close-Button in GUIs. This goes for both the development process on a developer's workstation, as well as directly on the server in test or production. In Windows based systems those processes can be easily found in the process manager that can be accessed via the GUI. In Unix based systems (Linux, MacOSX) such a GUI doesn't always exist (especially on the server) or is sometimes hard to find. We need a console based solution to ... <ul> <li>Find the right web server process that is running in the background</li> <li>Terminate it via the console</li> </ul>

Using xampp with Windows 7 64 Bit

Xampp that I normally use for creating PHP-sites didn't worked at this computer with a 64 bit Windows 7. The Problem is that I needed it to make some changes in the source of a php-site and this with that new computer. First I had to install xampp which I did, but it didn't worked.

How to remote deploy a Web service to Apache Tomcat from within a Java program

The deployment of servlets to a Servlet container like Tomcat is usually a simple task: Just copy the developed servlet to a specific target directory. The container will then hot deploy it. The proposed task is however more complex: The goal is to make a programmatical remote deployment of a Web service. In other words, an already developed Web service is to be deployed from a PC to a remote server which is running a Tomcat Servlet container. This task has three major requirements: - First, the deployment has to be remote: The Web service is to be deployed onto a different machine. - Second, it is to be accomplished programmatically, which means that it is necessary to develop a software component (for example in Java) which will carry out that task. - Third, the deployment has to be “hot”, which means that the deployed Web service has to run after a short time, without the need to restart the server or its Servlet container. As an addition to the above it is interesting to know, how to use a Servlet container like Tomcat for Web service deployment. In short the goal is to develop an application which can “hot deploy” a Servlet containing one or more Web services onto a remote machine, which is only known to run an Apache Tomcat Servlet container. The process could be called: “Programmatical-remote-hot-deployment of a Web service to an Apache Tomcat Servlet container.”

SSL certificate on Microsoft IIS Server not working

While trying to establish a secure SSL connection for a webservice i encountered the problem that IIS did load the certificate but when trying to access the service with some other program the SSL connection timed out. Though IIS did somehow indicate that this URL needed a SSL connection (in comparison: if i tried to connect by some other port than 443 with an SSL request i didn't get a timeout), i can't figure out the problem, cause i can view the certificate in windows regulary and assume it is correct. I used several tools and methods to create the certificate but all ways failed.
