Make a sync server that doesn't run 24/7

3 posts in this topic

Just a quick question,

I'm writing a script(in autoit :P) that keeps track of all the students in my school's marks/merits/demerits, the problem that I'm facing is getting a server that runs 24/7 handling incoming sync requests from the teachers PCs  - because you never know when they might hit the "sync files" button.

I had an idea to use e-mails to store the sync data and process it later, but the server has to be running to send the file back out.

Any ideas?

How about you write in a ping for the server and if it is not online, then the app for the person synching will write the data to a temp file and the next time they try to synch and the server is on then all the data synchs.

Or what if the files are hosted on some site that allows scripts to change/re-upload files, so when you hit sync it downloads the file changes it and re-uploads?
