Start HERE to learn HTML[^] - that's the most basic language of the web. Make a web page
Afterwards, move on to CSS (CSS3 these days) - teaches you how to format decorate the page
Finally, I prefer PHP. PHP will allow you to build pages uniquely for each user, access databases, move files. Make a real website!
The first three have interactive "try it" areas for you to see the code, modify it, and then see what happens.
I have this CMS work, at the edit_subject page, I have some problem that say ( The subject update failed.
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near '} WHERE id = 1' at line 4)
The question is really broad and so opinionated.
For the server-side I prefer F# due to mature .NET Core framework and functional defaults. Although the choice here is huge: js, C#, Java, Ruby, PHP, Go, Erlang. Literally, everything that is suitable for your specific needs.
But if you project needs super-fast responses from Backend, so choose another language more powerful like Golang or Java, if not go with nodejs.
My website, www.maroisconsulting.com, is hosted on Arvixe. I would like to create a folder, put some files in it, then allow an app I'm working on the download the files. I've never done this before and I'm stuck
Here's my download code so far.
static WebClient wc;
staticvoid Main(string args)
var fileUrl = "http://" + "www.maroisconsulting.com/SomePlace/SomeFile.txt"; // Broke it up so it would format here
wc = new WebClient();
wc.DownloadProgressChanged += Wc_DownloadProgressChanged;
wc.DownloadFileCompleted += Wc_DownloadFileCompleted;
wc.DownloadFileAsync(new Uri(fileUrl), @"c:\files\SomeFile.txt");
privatestaticvoid Wc_DownloadFileCompleted(object sender, System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs e)
Console.WriteLine("The download has been cancelled");
if (e.Error != null)
Console.WriteLine("An error ocurred while trying to download file" + Environment.NewLine + e.Error.Message);
Console.WriteLine("File succesfully downloaded");
privatestaticvoid Wc_DownloadProgressChanged(object sender, DownloadProgressChangedEventArgs e)
Console.WriteLine(e.ProgressPercentage + "% | " + e.BytesReceived + " bytes out of " + e.TotalBytesToReceive + " bytes retrieven.");
When I run, the Wc_DownloadFileCompleted fires immediately with the error
The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.
When I go in to the Arvixe Control Panel, File Manager, for my site, the file does exist. Again, this is new to me so I am probably doing something wrong.
Can anyone show me how this is done?
If it's not broken, fix it until it is.
Everything makes sense in someone's mind.
Ya can't fix stupid.
I am working on a browser-based document scanning application for IE it is fine as we can do scanning through ActiveX or Add-ons etc but when it comes to modern browsers like latest chrome, firefox and edge it is very hard to call any .exe or other is related functions from client-side .. What is the option to invoke scanner from modern browsers and do necessary file I/o on client end... Please don't mention proprietary software I prefer to work with open-source solutions.. regard
