I'm afraid it's not that easy. You'll have to actually build/install MapServer on your server (assuming you have permission to do so) and then configure it all to work properly. You cannot just copy the folder from your MS4W folder to the server. A quick Google search will provide some starting points.

  • Ok, Thank you very much for your valuable advice, I have done those was my problem,

  • You don't have to build MS4W, it's already built. If your server is Windows you can just copy the whole installation across from your windows PC. Obviously if your server is Linux based then this won't work.
