I am testing V18 And web serving on the client. There are a number of anomalies not sure if they are bugs that do make development and testing quite tricky. This is due to the removal of the “client local” functionality in version 18.
Firstly in database settings can someone clarify the difference as follows. The 4D client automatically creates a folder which stores the local files downloaded from the server the path is c:\users\profile name\appdata\local\name of database IP number\
In the settings for the database if you select the html root within this path For some reason in the settings dialogue this is displayed in red.
If you select a root folder outside of the user’s profile eg c:\4dclient\webfolder In the settings dialogue this is in black.

Then there is the problem of randomly creating additional profiles when connecting to the same server.

Lastly it would be useful with this new system if the remote connection dialogue displayed the path to the client folder. Otherwise way too easy to get mixed up with the folders being used.

Does anybody have any idea what the criteria is for creating additional profiles ?
can we force client to use a particular profile path ?
I’m using Git for source control but this is dependent upon the folders so if it keeps creating a new one it’s a problem
