Get started turning a desktop executable to a very basic web application
I have been using a DigitalOcean Ubuntu server (512 MB Memory / 20 GB Disk / LON1) for several months. I host on it a website of WordPress (Nginx), which works well.
Now, I have a totally different project. I want to turn an existing desktop application into a web application. The desktop application was developed by myself in OCaml under Linux. I have compiled it into an executable, so that we can run it in a command line: “name -parameters arg0 arg1 …”, and it returns some results.
1) where should I put this executable “name” in the server?
2) what code should I write in the server?
Could anyone point me to some samples to let me get started?
