  1. Am running a two-machine deployment of Filemaker Custom Web Solution on OS-X using only PHP and would like to edit the error document(s) for the server. I've already altered the document on the Apache side (HD/Library/Filemaker Server/HTTPServer/conf/httpd.conf, which I do not think is ever used) but when I attempt to edit the Tomcat error-page, the server is reported as "not responding" and, indeed, does not work. The file I attempted to add an error-page directive was HD/Library/Filemaker Server/Web Publishing/publishing-engine/jwpc-tomcat/fmi/WEB-INF/web.xml. The reason I wish to do th
  2. Having the same issue. I want something OTHER than Apple Mail to send the emails because the delsp bug breaks URLs. Have tried Thunderbird and QuickMail with no luck. Only Apple Mail works so far with me...
  3. I had a problem similar to this on WinXP with Outlook Express. Never could get it to work exactly right. I did get it working but only with a warning for EACH message that I was attempting to send out of FIlemaker. Filemaker calls for the new email message via MAPI on PC so I decided to use Thunderbird (which is reportedly MAPI compliant.) Obviously, you can still use Outlook as the main email program, just open it and use it normally. The only thing you'll miss by installing Thunderbird and setting it as the default is you can't click on mailto links and expect them to open in Out
  4. I have to disagree with the learned Stephen H. Blackwell on this. He did not read my post well and has therefore offered incorrect advise. The problem I was describing has nothing at all to do with a by-product of http authentication. If the reader would take the time to actually digest what I have written, she would see that I have already done essentially what was suggested. The guest account has VERY restricted access. The password protected accounts have more access. Both are set up for XML access... Everything acts normally when the guest account is turned off; users have
  5. Hey Steven, Could you tell me what is different about what you are suggesting and what I have done?? I don't think you read my post very well.
  6. Thanks for your reply but I think that this is exactly what I have done... In the same database, I have a Guest Account and about 2500 passworded accounts. I have created three custom privilege sets. One for the first password site called "Password Read Only A", one for the second site called "Password Read Only B" and one for the Guest account called "Guest Read Only." The Guest Account's custom privilege set called "Guest Read Only" is set as follows: "Guest Read Only" has only XML and XSLT turned on. In the "Records" setting, view access is applied to only one table and furt
  7. I have one rather large and complex company database. From this one db, I intend on hosting 2 secured sites (meaning user name and password protected using Filemaker's internal security and CWP) and also augmenting another portion of the website with non-sensitive, non protected data. Obviously, the non-sensitive stuff need not have the user enter a user name and password. Those web visitors should be completely free to view the information represented on those pages unencumbered. So to this effect, I have created all the user names and passwords for the 2 "secured" sites and I a
  8. Hello all, For added security, I would like to use the "$client-user-name" and "$client-password" in a static query command. Everything else I add to this works but not the client user name and client password. Here's an example of what I want to do: <?xslt-cwp-query params="-grammar=fmresultset&-db=DATABASENAME&-lay=LAYOUTNAME&USERNAME=&PASSWORD=&-find"?> Where USERNAME and PASSWORD are bonafide Filemaker fields holding their login data. I have these defined: I'm guessing that the replacements aren't being filled in since the page
  9. I found it in the DEFINE DATABASE in Filemaker and that did work. Thanks!
  10. Not sure what you mean... Indexing in Filemaker or in the XSL file? Whatever, I don't think I did. Could you elaborate?
  11. I have a password retrieval form in which the user submits his email address and zip code in a form. I'm guessing that because of the @ sign, Filemaker is processing the find as "find one character" as it does in the application interface and unless the user encloses the email address with quotes, the query finds no records. I hate to ask users to enclose their email address in quotes... I've attempted several "fixes" with encoding the main thrust but have run out of ideas. Is this a question of how the field is set up in Filemaker or a matter of encoding on the XSLT end? Do I n
  12. Hello all, I would like to pass two strings to a script and can do so with a URL but not with a form. The link that works is: results_test.xsl?-db=mydb&-lay=mylayout&-script=DateRange&-script.param=01/01/2005...01/01/2006&WebID=&Password=&-findFixed Date Search The form that does not work is: results_test.xsl Can this be done using a form? If so, what am I doing wrong here? MORE INFO: The script takes the left-most 10 digits and the right-most 10 digits, parses them and pastes them into two date range searc
