I've done a search in this forum for "SSL" and it returns no result. So I'll start this thread:
Has anyone posted a step by step guideline on how to implement SSL for FileMaker Server? If not, it would be very helpful, at least for me.
I am familiar with generating the request from the FileMaker Server Admin Console. I am familiar with submitting the generated pem key to the GoDaddy service, who then generates a certificate for a price. I am familiar with placing said certificate in the correct folder on the server. However, that's where I leave off. There's some final steps missing, I don't know what they are. But we need to somehow "connect" the domain name we submitted when buying the certificate (www.something.com) , to the actual server we are using (it only has a static IP address), somehow. No idea what those steps would be. Any insight would be appreciated.

San Diego, CA - January 12, 2017 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker® Business Alliance, is proud to announce the release of its first server-side plug-in - FM Books Connector Online Edition version 184.108.40.206. This plug-in is now compatible with FileMaker Server 14 -15 for Mac and Windows.
The FM Books Connector Online Edition plug-in connects FileMaker with QuickBooks Online and enables users to push and pull contacts, invoices, and other sales transaction information. A FileMaker and QuickBooks integration eliminates double entry and provides financial data to staff without multiple people accessing sensitive QuickBooks company files.
Version 220.127.116.11 includes an updated demo file to introduce and familiarize users and developers with the new server functionality, a new video for step-by-step instructions on how to install the plug-in on the server, and updated documentation for easier development and integration.
"We embarked on a mission to create a QuickBooks Online server-side plug-in so that users could streamline deployment and explore truly mobile options. By utilizing the server-side plug-in to handle the processing, users on FileMaker Pro, iPad, iPhone or WebDirect have the ability to shuffle data back and forth to QuickBooks Online without having to install a client-side plug-in." Marc Larochelle, Chief Executive Officer, Productive Computing, Inc.
With a Server license, multiple users can now post to QuickBooks Online from a desktop with FileMaker client, from a web browser using FileMaker WebDirect, and from an iPhone or iPad via FileMaker Go. The server-side plug-in allows users to capitalize on the mobility of QuickBooks Online. Sales staff, bookkeepers, or any employee can push a transaction from FileMaker to QuickBooks from the office, on the road, or working remotely from home.
Additional benefits of a Server license include:
- Added convenience of only needing to install the Server plug-in on one machine
- Unlimited users on one server
- Ability to connect with multiple QuickBooks Online company files
- Faster processing times than client-side plug-ins
The FM Books Connector Online Edition plug-in is available for an annual rate of $200 for a single user (client side) and $450 for a Server license. The Server license comes with a free copy of the single user (client) plug-in to allow for development and authentication with QuickBooks online.

I'm unsure where exactly to post this so I'll try it here. If there's a better place please move this but it seems to be the correct category.
I'm looking to setup hosting for a 15 member team who will be primarily accessing the database via WebDirect. However, I'd like to connect the solution to MySQL and open up parts of the database to 50 other users via Custom Web Publishing (php).
I'd appreciate any feedback on hosting companies who can handle some or all of the following: licensing, WebDirect, Custom Web Publishing and ODBC. I looked into FileMaker Cloud but it doesn't seem to be able to handle CWP. Someone mentioned today that you can go with AWS apart from Cloud and I'd love to hear feedback on that as well. Anything you guys can share on good and less than desirable solutions would be most appreciated.
Feel free to recommend your own company or PM me and tell me why I'll like working with you.

We have discovered a possible issue with the Admin/Config app. We'd appreciate your thoughts.
We turned on SSL by checking the SSL box in the enclosed screenshot. When attempting a sync the client received "The MirrorSync URL returned an unexpected response. Check your URL, verify that the server is running properly, and try again. Address: https://mirrorsync3.oda.state.or.us/MirrorSync/sync". So we went thru the config again and found the SSL box unchecked. We cannot get the SSL checkbox to stay checked.
We did modify the MirrorSync Customization script to set the $$MIRRORSYNC_URL with https and that worked. We are however, wondering if there is something awry with our install or this specific Configuration.
We are running MirrorSync 3.1.
