  1. I'm running FMS on OS X 10.9.5. It's serving forty databases, one of which is served to the web via custom web publishing. Everything is running smoothly but the campus security auditor is picking up a vulnerability with the old version of OpenSSL running on OS X 10.9.5's Apache. I addressed this on a different, non-FMS Mac by disabling Apple's bundled Apache and using MacPorts to install Apache2. How to do this on my FMS 11 Mac? Just getting MacPorts to install Apache2 is the first problem as port install apache2 fails with a conflicting ports message. I assume this is because the existing Apache is blocking installation of the new version but how to stop the existing one? I tried turning off web publishing in the FMS admin console but port install still fails with the familiar conflicting ports message. Even stopping the web server with Mark Banks' FMSControl didn't help. I therefore have a couple of questions: How do I stop the existing Apache so MacPorts will install Apache2? Once I have Apache2, how do I get FMS11 to use it instead of Apple's bundled Apache1? Thanks Colin
  2. Just bought a new laptop for my boss and it is running Yosemite (10.10.1). When we open FM13 (v4) and SC Companion Plugin (2.896) is installed, we get an error telling us we need Java SE 6 installed. If I remove the plugin, the message goes away. I would prefer not to have to jump through the hoops of installing or "reactivating" SE 6 if I don't have to. Per Apple's support website: Do I need to re-install Java? Best Regards, John Haffner

  4. I have an existing Filemaker script that Saves my contact list as a PDF and it is set to execute when I open the Filemaker file. The script works fine when I double-click the file to open it; however when I use a shell script to "Open print.fp7" via an OS X cron job, I find that many times instead of opening my file and running the script, instead the Filemaker icon is just left bouncing in the OS X Dock. When I click on the bouncing icon the Filemaker window then appears in the foreground and the script executes normally. Is there a way to ensure that my cron job "Open print.fp7" script executes without any user intervention? Thanks for your feedback.
  5. Hello Im using a trial filemaker 11 on my new mac and needed to open an old filemaker executable database that was made in windows 7 some years ago. I just needed to know if it`s possible to open or importing or exporting something to make it work, just to check some data .... I couldn't open it, maybe its something about the os x that I need to have a exe opener¨ on my mac I really lack knowledge on most these matters. Could someone help me? Thanks very much Guido

  7. Lately our office has been experiencing trouble accessing our databases - either over the local network, or remotely, offsite (via VPN access). Loading time is super slow, even scrolling through records gets it hung up and the db shuts. Often the window with the "communication with host could not be re-established..." error shows up and all windows close. We can access our networked volumes/folders/files fine. This issue seems to be particular to FMPro/FMServer. Sometimes it goes away after a server restart and other times it seems to resolve itself. I can't think of anything that was done to the server recently that would have affected FMServer (We are running 9, clients on FMP 9 or 8.5). Our server is connected to a switch that connects to our modem/router. Not sure if that plays in anywhere since i have yet to experience a hang up with anything else over the network.?
