I have a question. I'm trying to deploy to Xojo cloud an app that uses the adk. In the current server the Libs Directory has 4 symbolic links that point to like named files, like:

libvclient_release_x86.so.751 has a symbolic link libvclient_release_x86.so

It is imposible to copy a symbolic link via ftp. I'm wondering if I copied libvclient_release_x86.so.751 and named it libvclient_release_x86.so if that would work????

Any ideas?

Hello Richard,

No, it is necessary to have both file names, with version and without it.

Do you have terminal/ssh access?
If you have - you can compress app and transfer links in the archive, then use unzip archive.zip command in the terminal.

Or just recreate them using
ln command like here:
ln -s libvclient_release.so.762 libvclient_release.so

So copying wouldn't work. Have no SSH access. I did it the way you said on our current server.

Xojo cloud is a lot tighter.

If you have the same file twice - libvclient_release_x86.so.751 and libvclient_release_x86.so instead of the symlink - it should work.

But looks like Xojo cloud supports SFTP access.
For example, you can do it from the macOS terminal:

sftp user@host
cd /app_folder
symlink libvclient_release_x86.so.751 libvclient_release_x86.so
symlink libvkernel_release_x86.so.751 libvkernel_release_x86.so
symlink libvshared_release_x86.so.751 libvshared_release_x86.so
symlink libvreport_release_x86.so.751 libvreport_release_x86.so
bye

I didn't know you could do that with ftp.

So thats the command: symlink libvreport_release_x86.so.751 libvreport_release_x86.so

Then whats this:

ln -s libvclient_release.so.762 libvclient_release.so

I duplicated each file and renamed it and it seems to work. I will test further on Monday.:D

Yes, it should work, just not optimal.

With SFTP protocol it's possible.

"ln -s" - this command is for terminal/SSH
"symlink" - is for SFTP

Apparently my SFTP account won't let me.

Is there a possible problem that can happen due to my solution of copying the files?

It seems to be working 100% fine.

No problem at all.

Do you get some error running symlink command?
