Admin Server Console - Connection Refused Error
By Andrew Nicolay
I'm helping a client who has an old install of Filemaker Server Advanced 11 running on a Mac Mini.
It's been running Filemaker v11.5 for about 2 year without any issue... All of a sudden today, it stopped working!
I checked to see if there were any updates installed from apple or java... NONE!
I completely uninstalled Filemaker Server and reinstalled v11.5 and applied the java fix... still won't start.
Just for laughs I installed v11.2, that installed fine, up and running no problem, as soon as I restart the Mac Mini, everything takes a dump. When I go to localhost:16000 or serverip:16000 in the browser, nothing happens, as if filemaker server was never even installed. If I double click the applet icon, it says "Unable to launch the application - Connection Refused".
Additional Database Folder will not launch on reboot
I have added an internal SSD to my FMP server machine and have moved the databases to a folder on this drive. I specified this folder in the Additional Database folder path (and checked the box for use additional database folder). I am able to host the databases this way. However when the server is rebooted, they do not start up automatically as they did when they were in the default location.
I cannot find anything to tell me how to control which databases are launched on startup. Is there a way to make my new folder the default folder?
Cache Flush Distribution defaults to 3 hours 1 minute
I have recently had to re-install our FM Server and for some reason, the cache flush distribution interval is set to 03:01 (3 hours and 1 minute) and it won't change. I don't understand why it is doing this. I have tried adjusting it, saving it, and restarting the server, but it just stays at 03:01. Has anyone else had this problem? After a few initial searches, I have not seen this come up anywhere else. Any clues on how to fix this?
Thanks in advance!
MAX Charachters in ODBC connection/Execute SQL
Does anyone have an idea of how many characters I can use into ExecuteSQL command? Or if there is a limit on an ODBC connection?
I used ExecuteSQL and it gave me error message "string too long" till I reduced the size of data to 2000 characters only. Any idea if I can use more? And how?
FMS11 - insert over ODBC driver doesn't add a record, or throw an error
I'm using pyodbc to send SQL queries to a filemaker 11 server.
I can read data, no problem. I can update data, no problem. But when I attempt to insert data, no errors are thrown but no records are added to the database.
