  1. PSOS Export Records Error 800

    What is your use of the exported data? Is this a temp thing that you import in the next step? Like populating an invoice from an order, i e Then using unformatted XML may be faster than XSLX.
  2. Anyone able to provide the installer for FileMaker 5.5v2 Server for linux? It's an RPM, in case you have it it's not on an original CD. I have the CD with 5.5 Server, but would really like to have the 5.5v2 or 5.5r2, I do not remember the exact phrasing. I already have 5.5v2 preinstalled, I'm not able to find the installer itself, and I would like to move to a newer environment.
  3. Is it beneficial to increase the amount of available memory? I'm not asking if it's needed at this point in time. How much memory will FileMaker 16 Server benefit from? My options are 1) to run only FileMaker 16 Server on this node alone, or 2) share this node with other VMs. The reason for asking is that earlier versions of FileMaker Server only benefitted from increasing the available RAM to a given number 16GB? or 32?
  4. Dehydrated is a client for signing certificates with an ACME-server( currently only provided by Let's Encrypt ) implemented as a relatively simple bash-script. It uses the openssl utility for everything related to actually handling keys and certificates, so you need to have that installed. Other dependencies are: cURL, sed, grep, mktemp( all found on almost any system, cURL being the only exception ) https://github.com/lukas2511/dehydrated I use dehydrated for nginx
  5. If you read the post thoroughly; I mention all the storage in the box. I'll narrow this down for you: There is 256GB of conventional RAM in the box I have set up, I have assigned 32 GB RAM for the node that runs FileMaker Server so far, my question is it beneficial to increase this amount? FYI: Newer servers have room for up to 6TB RAM: http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon/C600/X10QRH_.cfm
  6. What is not RAM? http://www.zfsbuild.com/2010/04/15/explanation-of-arc-and-l2arc/ all 3 items below is in essence RAM, only the 256GB is conventional RAM as your standard concept of computer memory while ZIL is swap space-"like" hence MLC SSDs and the workspace is also SSDs The machine has 256 GB RAM; example: $ prtconf | grep Mem Memory size: 245745 Megabytes 1.5 TB ZIL 8 TB workspace
  7. My newest SuperMicro servers can hold up to 3TB of RAM, I only filled 1 of them with 512GB so far. I usually configure them with 1.5TB of MLC ( 3x 512GB )and 8 TB( 16x 512GB ) of regular SSDs
  8. How much RAM do you assign for FileMaker? Is it beneficial to have more than 256GB of RAM?
  9. Using Whatsapp within filemaker

    If you go the telegram way I may be able to contribute. I have _NO_ desire to use Facebook/whatsapp or skype, however Telegram Messenger is really good.
  10. Using Whatsapp within filemaker

    If you choose Telegram Messenger; you most likely would like to implement: https://core.telegram.org/method/auth.signIn https://core.telegram.org/method/messages.sendMessage and their prerequisits. Before you start acquire an API ID: https://core.telegram.org/api/obtaining_api_id for your own client. If you would like a 3rd option: this video( 02:30 - 35:58 ) may or may not suite your needs for messaging in a FileMaker setup alone:
  11. Using Whatsapp within filemaker

    Whatsapp's e2e is not necessarily better than HTTPS from what I understand; while Telegram's e2e is.
  12. Using Whatsapp within filemaker

    Ehhh, there is bot API and Telegram API: https://core.telegram.org/api what you really want is to make your own Telegram Messenger client inside FileMaker from what I read. I believe more than 90% of the knowledge you will need to apply was covered in Steve Winter's curl presentation at FM Dev Con 2017 Telegram Messenger is the snappiest IM I ever tried.
  13. Will this be the full procedure for FM16S on a Mac? Once https://brew.sh/ brew install certbot Perpetually; the first of every month or so sudo certbot certonly -w "/Library/FileMaker Server/HTTPServer/htdocs" -d sub.domain.tld ln -s /etc/letsencrypt/live/sub.domain.tld/privkey.pem /Library/FileMaker\ Server/CStore/privkey.pem sudo fmsadmin certificate import /etc/letsencrypt/live/sub.domain.tld/fullkey.pem --keyfile /Library/FileMaker\ Server/CStore/privkey.pem sudo launchctl stop com.filemaker.fms sudo launchctl start com.filemaker.fms Here are some examples on how to use certbot for other purposes: https://certbot.eff.org/docs/using.html
  14. On a mac or linux( or the windows bash shell ) I would run curl from both the locations and see if you receive the desired response, are you sure this is not a firewall / port forwarding issue? curl http://username:password@ For somewhat legible XML pipe through tidy curl http://username:password@ | tidy -xml -i -wrap 0 Or for SSL curl -k https://username:password@
