Hi All,

I'm looking for an alternative to Swiff Chart Generator
(http://www.globfx.com/). Price isn't of concern, rather I'm a bit hesitant
over the quality of the output - it looks too 'unprofessional' for our

I've also looked at the following:


Not seeing anything that stands out and Corda carries ~$5k price tag.

We will be using PHP w/ Apache running under Redhat 9 on a production
server. Load will be moderate but the use of intricate graphing and charting
will be the cornerstone of the site. We would rather pay more for a higher
quality product than have to deal with sub-par features/performance.

Has anyone traveled down this road before? 

TIA :)
Sincerely yours, 
Aaron Holmes

Thanks J.J.SOLARI! I'm now using the VirtualHost directive under
Apache-1.3 on Linux. Here's a summary:

You can test websites locally under Apache by using the VirtualHosts
directive. For each site you wish to test, use a seperate directory, eg.
/www/local.site.com. Now add the following lines to your httpd.conf:


DocumentRoot /www/

Now for each site you wish to test, add a VirtualHost directive. You can
use the following as a template:

<VirtualHost local.site.com>
DocumentRoot /var/www/local.site.com
ServerName local.site.com

Reload Apache. To make the site accessible from your browser as
http://local.site.com, add the following line to /etc/hosts: local.site.com

You'll have to add a line such as that for each site, changing the
hostname as appropriate, but leaving the IP address alone.
