I’ve been thinking a lot about schedules lately–software production schedules, deadlines, sprint plans, etc.–and I ran into this from my Pause On Error session 4 years ago:Below, I’ve proposed 8 “blockers” that, if true, seem to reinforce my skepticism that you can’t really share FileMaker development: t...

Where is the Remote ?!? Part 1, Referencing a Remote Container

  Posted by JerrySalem in Philly FileMaker User Group, 16 April 2014 - - - - - - · 135 views

Remote containers are a great new feature in FileMaker.  It lets you keep the size of your databases smaller.  I have one database that went from over 6GB to just 500MB when I moved the containers from internal to remote.  It made the backups faster and saved a lot of space on their backups!  In this first installment of a short series about con...

Posted by Steven H. Blackwell in FileMaker Security Blog, 01 April 2014 - - - - - - · 717 views

I have recently learned that there may be any number of FileMaker Server installations world-wide that are hosting files that open automatically without credentials challenge to the [Full Access] Privilege Set. The default-installed FileMaker Server Sample File is one of these; however, there are others.

This is not such a good practice. Such files off...
