  1. You may want to consider using a hosting service like ours: http://www.pointinspace.com/ We offer shared hosting accounts for as little as $29/month. - John
  2. We offer FileMaker hosting worldwide: http://www.pointinspace.com/ on both shared accounts and virtual dedicated servers. We have been providing professional FileMaker hosting for over 18 years. Please let me know if you have any additional questions either here or off-list to jmay(at)pointinspace.com. Thanks! - John
  3. Note that our pricing is competitive with AWS as well, once you factor in their hidden backup and processor time charges. - John
  4. You should update to OS X 10.11 or 10.12. This will update your Apache and ModSSL installs. Unfortunately, FMS 11 is not compatible with these newer OS versions so you'll need to update it as well, and then your FMPro installs too. Isn't this fun? I'm not even sure how you're running FMS 11 on OS X 10.9 as it is an unsupported OS for that version. - John
  5. This is the problem with FileMaker Cloud - there just isn't any competent support behind it. Have a look at our services for an alternative: http://www.pointinspace.com/ We've been providing professional FileMaker Hosting for over 18 years. We offer shared accounts and virtual dedicated servers running the full version of FileMaker Server (no limitations like FileMaker Cloud), and include complete management with all of our accouts. For example, we would easily be able to assist with the SSL renewal issues you are having. - John
  6. I don't really understand those (proprietary) DNS configuration screens - we just configure BIND directly here. You can use any (sub)domain you want for your certificate, as long as it has an associated A and not CNAME record. - John
  7. You need to point a (sub)domain being used for SSL with an A record, not a CNAME record. - John
  8. Processor cores are usually assigned on-demand, but RAM should definitely be statically (not dynamically) assigned. Dyanmically assigned RAM is a bad idea no matter what you're running on a VM server. - John
  9. We use 2009 Xserves here. 8 core Xeons with hyperthreading for 16 virtual cores, with up to 192GB RAM. Backended to Fibre Channel SANs. Definitely not slouches and handle *lots* of traffic. Processors haven't made it that far since these machines' inception, despite what system manufacturers may tell you. - John
  10. Curions what all y'all's reasoning is for not recommending OS X as a host system for FileMaker Server. We, obviously, run *lots* of OS X systems with FileMaker Server here and rarely have any problems with them. Historically, we have seen considerably fewer bug reports regarding FileMaker Server on OS X vs Windows as well. - John
  11. We offer virtual servers specifically designed for FileMaker Server, and have been providing professional FileMaker Hosting for over 16 years. See details at: http://www.pointinspace.com/ Let me know if you have any questions either here or off-list to jmay(at)pointinspace.com. Thanks! - John
