  1. Yes, although you'll need to host that website on another webserver and then exchange data, through the Data REST API with the FileMaker databases.
  2. PHP is NOT supported on FileMaker Cloud and it will never be supported there. If you want to do CWP with FM Cloud, you need to use Data REST API. AppleScript will never be supported on FileMaker Cloud, since it's a Linux box.
  3. Hi everyone. For some reason I never got notified of activity here, which is why I had to go to Peter’s home in order to learn about it... Just wanted to let you know that I will respond to this next week. In regards of process log entries filling up fast; I’ve been using a ExecuteSQL script step to clean up this table, which should be in the FileMaker file. You just need to configure it. To me, that’s easier than using the MySQL workbench and it is working well, since it’s a SQL command. As said, I will get back next week. Thank you for your interes
  4. In case you are interested, we have published a free tool as well. Please note that this one is Mac only, but you can extend it yourself to be working on Windows as well. https://thebrainbasket.com/?p=543
  5. This type will be converted to Concurrent Connection License. Roughly the same type as you have. 1 server, hard cut off on 10 connections (if that's what your contract says) But users can use FMPA, FMGO, WebDirect - depending on what you have developed in your solution. Use this type of license contract, if you have unknown or occasional users. Note that each seat is roughly 3x a user seat. So if you know your users, the new User Licence type is better and cheaper. Note that Site license is very different in that the number of clients is the headcount in the ENTIRE organisation
  6. FileMaker Cloud 16 platform is now available and with that, we get some very missed features. Not only is the cloud now in parity with the FileMaker 16 platform with PDF and print on the server, but we now also have the ability to create Server Side schedules on FileMaker Cloud. In order to do so, you will need to create your own integration or app, that can utilise the new admin REST API for FileMaker Cloud. ...or.... You can get our new iOS app; FMC Console, that let's you monitor your cloud instance as well as create Server side schedules. If you are intere
  7. Just want to note that FileMaker Cloud is not a bad product. For some, it is a good option. Also be aware that this is really version 1.2 og the cloud, so it does have some rough edges. In particular, the SSL part was way too difficult, even for advanced admins. That's the reason I created a free tool and a video with Richard to help out. I am glad to see that FMI did listen to my suggestions regarding the SSL process, so they have built-in an easy way to renew the Comodo certificate via FileMaker Store. This is an easy way for people, who is ok with the default domain (myserver.fmi.f
  8. It could be that you either used a certificate that is not supported. The webserver support many more certificate types than the DB engine. Another reason could be that you didn’t include a intermediate certificate or you have used a wrong one. I haven’t installed a GoDaddy myself, so I am not familiar with their process.
  9. Hi Genelia 1. Scheduled FileMaker scripts is not supported by FileMaker Cloud. Backup schedules are not supported either. For backups, FileMaker Cloud are using snapshot feature of AWS. System level scripts are not supported. I know that FMI has stated that they are looking into server side schedule of FileMaker scripts, so that might come in the future. Only way to trigger a server side script currently, is to have a robot machine, firing a PSOS script. 2. With the amount of users, you state here, I think Citrix is the best option. They have a proven track record for great product
  10. Hi riadh2002 Thanks fo posting this mod. I love it, when someone can extend on what I start. Really glad that my tool seems to have been helpful to you and others. In case someone has only had their hands on the first version, I released, the most recent version of the tool, let's you both import, "make FM ready" SVG - but the most useful feature of the newest version, is that you can take a found set, press the button to "copy" all found icons and paste them into your solution all at once. So say you have a standard collection of SVG icons, that you normally want to use. Find th
  11. You don't need to have your server exposed to the internet in order to install and use SSL. However, you do need to have DNS setup. That means that you will need an internal DNS server, that can resolve your domain to your server and you do need to purchase a domain name. There are several supported SSL certificates that are domain validated. It differs a bit, how they do this, but most will require you to have an email account for hostmaster@yourdomain.com and they will email to this address to do the validation. I just gave a presentation at DevCon on this, so you can watch
  12. Hi Peter Don't know if this is helpful, but the FMP for connections client, needs to connect to the server within 15 min. before you get the dialog, requiring you to enter the address to a server. So, it seems that the client gets disconnected from the server, either with app nap or something else. While the client is disconnected, the timer in the FMP client starts ticking until it reaches 15 min. However, I have not seen the issue you describe, where you get the message, before the client tries to reconnect to the open files. I am wondering if the server version has a play in t
  13. I agree with Wim.... as I also posted above. Is it always easy ? - no, of course we all run into clients and people, who don't understand or who have a belief that some other platform is better. However, the FileMaker platform is still very much alive and growing. That is after more than 30 years in the market. Something that can't be said about many other platforms. Personally I work more than full time - in fact 10-12 hours a day, 7 days a week and I have trouble keeping up with all the projects. But, if you have doubts about the platform, it would be interesting to hear your
  14. While I am not an Active Directory expert, I know that with Open Directory it is possibly to setup a replica server. That will automatically take care of sync between the Directory master and the replica. This way you should be able to have your replica on your AWS server, which replica data from your on-premises AD.
