Remote File Upload and Download
By Jason H
I'm trying to find out if its possible to create a web based FileMaker 13 solution (WebDirect) where I can remotely upload files to the db and someone else can remotely download those files.
All the reading that I have been doing with regards to WebDirect doesn't touch on containers at all.
Is this scenario possible and what would be the basics of making it happen (how to initiate an upload or downlaod, contain setup, etc)
Where to look to fix PHP
So, We have a unix admin working on our Mac OSX server. I specifically instructed them not to break our Filemaker 13 Apache install. Well it looks like they worked on the machine but broke one thing.
Does anyeone know where I should look to fix this?
Webserver servers files fine from the Filemaker HTTP Folders.
Filemaker WebDirect works fine.
PHP is working.
PHP is indicated as ON in FMSA Admin.
Admin pages at http://localhost:16001/admin-consolework fine.
Admin screen shows green on Webserver. Indicates PHP is enabled.
This is the only thing that is not working:
Previous PHP pages which has successfull connection to databases no longer connect to the database.
I assume that a reference to filemaker somehow got removed from one of the php config files, but I don't know where.
Can anyone give me an idea where to look?
Single Sign-On via the Browser
Ok, so we have just completed the set up of our test FM13 server and the application is being accessed via webdirect.
I have tested it on Chrome (as our managed image only runs IE8 at present), and I get a login dialog whuich i have to enter my network credentials into. Currently the application is secured by three different Active Directory groups based on the access level of the user, and the users would really like to know if it's possoble for them to not have to sign in?
The third party provider who set this up believed it was possible, but as WebDirect is new, there doesn't seem to be much info available. I've searched the user guides and they all mention SSO with ODBC, but I am pretty sure this doesn't apply here.
Can anyone tell me if what we need is possible, and if so how?
Open URL different in webdirect and in FMPro
We have a development that if accessed by regular Filemaker Pro the button (via Open URL) that links to a document (word file) it does open the application (MS word) resulting a very satisfactory behaviour for users.
But the same stuff when running with WebDirect the Chrome gets an
"not capable of opening the window; please deactivate the popup window blocker and try again". Well needless to say that that blocker is not active (under preferencies) and the IS manager of the net also verifies it is not blocked at her level.
Also firefox, same machine, is not able to open the application; in this case with no alarm / action at all.
