Porting Custom Software

For any one that has the time or the inclenation (without violating licensing) to try porting your group's own custom software package to your own hardware.

In the case of Owl Eval, that is exactly what I did! Over the last week I spent several says going through the process of porting the Owl Eval php/mysql web app running at the time on an Apache web server on top on Linux to my Windows box at home which is a Pentium 4 3.2Ghz 1Gig Ram running Windows XP Pro with IIS 5.1 web server with a PHP/MYSQL plugin.

I must say this was not a trivial matter! Fixing the broken link references form the old site was the most grueling espcially the documentation to say the least. But please check it out here, and tell me how well I ported things compared to the old site.
