Hello again , Gordan.

I understand what you explained.
But, actually, I don't want to run it on a production environment.
It is mainly for testing purposes, it's part of a work for university.

And , could you please tell me where can I download the source tree ?
I will need to read the code.

Thanks you for your help and thoughful considerations.

All The Best,
