I’ve been learning a lot in the past few days. I have a fully functional dashboard up and running and I’m very happy. I am just not sure how to host my dashboard properly after I finish testing it. I don’t have access to a server with IIS at the moment, but that will change in a few months.
Right now I use a while loop to start and stop the dashboard every 10 seconds. I notice that the dashboard number increases by 1 every time it runs a loop.
This method is also the only way that the site will pull the data into the dashboard as it uses the variables from some SQL script block that I have running inside my dashboard script.
Is there a better way of pulling SQL data into universal dashboard, and how would you host a site without IIS?
Sorry for the simple questions, I’ve just been unable to get clear answers so far.
Hi @kreef just so others can help out, what operating system are you using on your machine right now? Just at work I am using windows 10, so I just installed IIS onto my windows 10 install going through the add/remove windows features…but if you update with your OS then others might be able to suggest. Thank you.
You don’t need to restart your dashboard every 10 seconds for this.
Have a look at :

Wow this is an awesome feature! Thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it.
I got a dashboard project I hosted on github here:-
This is connected to a SQL DB I created…but shows how to used the
I also split my pages into separate PS1 files, which makes managing my dashboards loads easier.
I am looking at it now, it looks like it is going to teach me a lot about how SQL interacts with UD. Thanks!!!
