  1. Is this what you mean? BilalAli_v2.fmp12
  2. There is no way to change the color of an image within FileMaker. You will have to store each color of each image in a table. One way to do this is in a repeating field. See attached example. BilalAli.fmp12
  3. Yes, my production database is set up the same way, and works fine. What I'm trying to do is create a test system on my local computer that mirrors the production system so I can develop without messing with the live system. I could do it with FM14, but so far not with FM17. I've been playing with fire for far too long!
  4. I ran the uninstaller, and removed everything that still said "FileMaker Server" after moving my php files to another directory. I reinstalled FMS17 and moved my php files back into /Library/FileMaker Server/HTTPServer/htdocs directory. Now when I try to open localhost/phpinfo.php (for example; anything else does the same) I get an error message I can open /htdocs/index.html successfully. What permissions should these files have? Can I set them with the Finder's Get Info utility or must they be set in Terminal? Is there something else I have overlooked?
  5. xpost: I have installed a copy of my website on my local server with installed FMS 17. Direct contact with the (local copy of the) database works fine through File–>Hosts–>localhost, and I can access the Admin Console via localhost:16001. When I try to connect via a php script, I get an Error 22 message: Communication Error: (22) The requested URL returned error: 503 Service Unavailable - This can be due to an invalid username or password, or if the FMPHP privilege is not enabled for that user. I can run other scripts which do not access the database successfully. I made this installation so that I had a testbed for my operational website. The database and php scripts are exactly identical to the files on my remote host (except, of course, for the server name in the php connector files). What steps should I take to isolate the problem?
  6. I tried to update my CWP site to PHP7 and ran into all sorts of problems. It appears that FileMaker's PHP API can't handle it. Is the only answer to upgrade to Data API?
  7. According to FMS 17 Technical Specifications: Note: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Standard and Enterprise Editions are no longer supported. Please update your operating system before upgrading to FileMaker Server 17. Certified Operating Systems* Windows Server 2016 Standard Edition (with Desktop Experience) Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition with Update (see Microsoft KB 2919355) :
  8. Frames are pretty much deprecated technology. Give your picker div a float:left property and a width, and add overflow:scroll and a height to the CSS for the results div.
  9. In lines 1 and 2, you can't have spaces in a variable name. Even if you could, you didn't set the variable "$ Set Temp Path" to a value. Did you mean "Get(TemporaryPath)"?
  10. Let( list = substitute(yourField; "|";¶); $city = getValue(list; 1) ) Then, $state = getValue(list; 2) and $country=getValue(list; 3) Or Let( [firstpipe=Position(yourField; "|"; 1; 1); secpipe= Position(yourField; "|"; 1; 2); $city = Left(yourField; firstpipe-1); $state= Middle(yourField; firstpipe+1; 2); $country =Right(yourField; Length(yourField)-secpipe) ]; ... )
  11. It occurred to me that the problem started about the same time as I installed Avast Antivirus. So just for the halibut, I uninstalled Avast. I haven't seen the problem since.
  12. The past two weeks or so, almost every time I open a page on this site, I get a message that Safari can't open the page. After sometimes 3 or 4 reloads, the page opens. Chrome never has a problem. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it a setting in Safari or in the forum software?
  13. You need to make the names of the checkbox inputs part of an array, and then use the newCompoundFindCommand() in the php api. I am assuming that since you are using check boxes instead of Radio buttons, you foresee the need to select multiples. See if these help. You will have to put them on your servers and massage the paths a bit, of course. checkbox.zip
  14. You have to access the database twice: once to download the list of available colors (before displaying it in html or a php echo statement) and again after the form is submitted (so that $_POST['search'] is populated. Check your PM.
