I have helping a non-profit out for the past 5-6 years writing little solutions here and there in Lasso 8.5.6 running on a old mac mini of mine. We’ve decided it’s time for them to get their own server to partially reduce the “hit by a bus” scenario if I disappear and my server goes with me (there’s also the issue where I’m using software nobody has heard of, but at least it will run until they can find a volunteer to re-write it in php or whatever). I’m worried about trying to get 8.5 running in the latest linux or Mac OS (not sure yet on the server type).
I started with Tango, moving over to Lasso 2.5 back in the day. Anyway, I never advanced to the LassoScript stuff, I’m still an old-school put everything in brackets kind of guy. I mention this because I’m trying to figure out why Lasso 8.6 is still for sale when 9.3 is out in the wild. Are there issues moving to 9.x when upgrading 8.x sites that 8.6 needs to remain available? I’m a little confused by 8.6 and 9.3 both being available and both costing the same.
Also I see now that the licenses include “instances” of the software. Does this mean if I get three instances with my license, I can run one of the instances on a completely different server as a backup? Or do all of the instances need to remain one one computer?
That said, is this worrying for nothing? Can I simply move my 8.5 license to a newer server running the latest linux or Mac OS and will it still work? I’m almost done ditching FMP as a datasource, so that won’t be a worry any longer.
