  1. Interesting approach from their part for sure. I wonder what I am supposed to do if I happen to use two different software which both assume they own and can overwrite httpd.conf from their config start to the end. I'm starting to get pissed by that FileMaker, in business for at least 10 years, introduces year-by-year into their software very basic programming concepts known for at least 30 years... This httpd.conf issue again proves that they have absolutely no understanding of even the most basic integration principles...
  2. If you look at it again, I wrote that I've found this very "solution" myself too, and applied it. It seems like the stability issue is indeed unrelated (I haven't updated to v2 previously), but the line I add to httpd.conf gets overwritten/deleted whenever I have to update server deployment for one reason or another. Thanks anyway.
  3. Hello! I use Web Publishing with FMS9, and I have a few issues regarding its integration with Apache. My primary concern is that it insists on including its own server-status config into httpd.conf, which in turn has an AddDefaultCharset directive. This turns on the charset header globally, which interferes with the sites hosted on the same server. Is this absolutely unavoidable? Why is it so important for FMS to have Apache serve pages with an UTF-8 header added? I tried adding an "AddDefaultCharset off" line after the FMS Includes, which solved my problem temporarily, whi
  4. Then how does the XML component work? I thought it just sat in the WPE, accepted HTTP requests, and replied with XML data. Based on what you say, it is a module in IIS, which accepts HTTP requests, converts them to some proprietary format, forwards it to the WPE by some means; then receives data back in some proprietary format, converts it to XML, and sends it back to the client from inside IIS. Is this right? If this is the case, can the Apache-module (which is used on OS X) be used on Windows? And what if the FMSA is on a Windows box, but the webserver is Apache on a separate *NIX
  5. I'm just trying to get familiar with FMSA's technologies. I see that the server deplyment assistant won't let me enable the XML component if I won't choose a web server it can detect. I'm wondering if it's possible to enable and use XML without a supported web server. For example, using Apache on Windows. In my particular case, I just want to get familiar with the DB access interfaces FMSA can provide, and I'd like to contact them from simple PHP and/or other scripts run by the command-line interpreter, without using any web server whatsoever. So, actually I want to enable the XML an
  6. I've figured it out since. Originally I've put the text constant for the global match value into a global field, and used that in the calculation to combine the match field together. Unfortunately, FM doesn't notify the user in this case that this disables indexing in the resulting calculation (because of the used global field), and thus it can't be used as the remote side of a relationship. So the portal just showed nothing, and I thought the whole concept just didn't work. I'll check them out. Thanks for the help.
  7. Yes, I know that I can use List() to combine textual values. The problem is, when both sides of a relationship is text resulting from a List(), then FM seems to simply match by the whole string value, as opposed to find a match when any line of the right value matches any other line of the left value. By structured IDs I mean that I won't use any semantic information built into ID values - e.g. any IDs < 10000 represent employees, the others customers, or something like that. I hope I'm clear. Also, this List() approach doesn't work if some of the predicates to be ORed together wo
  8. Yeah, I coined unique prefixes up initially, too. The problem is, the List-approach seems to work only with numbers. Or maybe I did something (matbe indexing-related?) wrong - but the result was that the relationship didn't show anything when I worked with fields of type text. Also, I'd like to avoid using structured IDs (as to the suggestion of using field values with some unique characteristic).
  9. That's OK, but it doesn't help in many cases. For example, I may have multiple independent relationships between the records in my tables (that is, the match fields of the relationships are different on both sides), and yet I'd like to collect the results in one related record set, with ORing the predicates. The List() approach detailed in the referred topic works with multiple fileads on both sides, but it facilitates a match between ANY listed fields from the two sides, not only matches in corresponding fields.
  10. Hi, can someone help me about how I can create a relationship with an OR-type criteria? Let's assume I have customers and events. Events can be open, or associated to a set of customers. For each customer, I want to list all the open events, and also all the ones associated with that customer. Is there a way I could do this in one relationship? thx
  11. Hi, I have a repeating text field, and I'd like to use the concatenation of the repetitions as a single string (maybe with a given separator string inserted between the values, but this is less important). Any suggestions? I counldn't figure it out, without having to loop through the repetitions in a script and collecting the value in a variable.
