  1. I am running a server side script that attempts to update records in a MySQL table that is set up as an external data source. It runs without issue for hours to weeks at a time then gets hung on error 512 (Record was already modified by another user). The problem is that I can't figure out how to capture and handle this error. I've tried adding "If get(lasterror)=512 then <skip this record and continue to next> just after the 'Go to Record(next)' but it never gets to that step. Instead hangs on try to move the record pointer and writing error after error to the log. I've searched t
  2. How can I get ESS access to PostgreSQL from FM11SA?
  3. What is wrong when Database appears unavailable to the scheduler, yet regular users are logged in?
  4. I'm running FMS on OS X 10.9.5. It's serving forty databases, one of which is served to the web via custom web publishing. Everything is running smoothly but the campus security auditor is picking up a vulnerability with the old version of OpenSSL running on OS X 10.9.5's Apache. I addressed this on a different, non-FMS Mac by disabling Apple's bundled Apache and using MacPorts to install Apache2. How to do this on my FMS 11 Mac? Just getting MacPorts to install Apache2 is the first problem as port install apache2 fails with a conflicting ports message. I assume this is because
  5. Hi, I am using filemaker 11 to copy customer info from excel into the database and then it would generate special keys in pdf allowing us to send the file to the customer. My access to the filemaker is non-admin, and the import function of customer info has been blocked. We are keying in the record one at a time, so we are looking at ways to automate this process. When I try to create a new record using applescript with just it was not allowed. There are data that require validation like date and auto-indexed record number. So, is there a way we could create new re
  6. Hi: I want to share a good cloud backup alternative, Hubic, it gives 25 GB free, and you can schedule backup to happen "x" hours or minutes after a file has changed. So just add a backup schedule to the "Hubic"folder of your PC or MAC where you have your server and instruct Hubic to sync 1 hour after, that way you make sure the upload will happen after your backup has completed. Neat and free. I was using Onedrive, but with the recent decrease in free capacity I looked for alternatives, I specially like the delay before upload. Carlos
  7. I'm helping a client who has an old install of Filemaker Server Advanced 11 running on a Mac Mini. It's been running Filemaker v11.5 for about 2 year without any issue... All of a sudden today, it stopped working! I checked to see if there were any updates installed from apple or java... NONE! I completely uninstalled Filemaker Server and reinstalled v11.5 and applied the java fix... still won't start. Just for laughs I installed v11.2, that installed fine, up and running no problem, as soon as I restart the Mac Mini, everything takes a dump. When I go to localhost:16000 o
  8. I have two filemaker servers. One is version 7 and the other is version 11 advanced. I transferred the files from FM7 server to FM11 with no problem. Long story short, everything was great until I realized that the users were still using the FM7 files. To fix the problem, I shut down the filemaker service on both servers, then made a backup of each server by copying the files to another folder. Then I removed the FM11 files that were never used and copy and pasted the .fp7 files from the FM7 server to the FM11 server. I started the filemaker service on FM11, opened the files using the FM11 con
  9. I have added an internal SSD to my FMP server machine and have moved the databases to a folder on this drive. I specified this folder in the Additional Database folder path (and checked the box for use additional database folder). I am able to host the databases this way. However when the server is rebooted, they do not start up automatically as they did when they were in the default location. I cannot find anything to tell me how to control which databases are launched on startup. Is there a way to make my new folder the default folder? Thanks!!
  10. Hello, I have recently had to re-install our FM Server and for some reason, the cache flush distribution interval is set to 03:01 (3 hours and 1 minute) and it won't change. I don't understand why it is doing this. I have tried adjusting it, saving it, and restarting the server, but it just stays at 03:01. Has anyone else had this problem? After a few initial searches, I have not seen this come up anywhere else. Any clues on how to fix this? Thanks in advance!
  11. Does anyone have an idea of how many characters I can use into ExecuteSQL command? Or if there is a limit on an ODBC connection? I used ExecuteSQL and it gave me error message "string too long" till I reduced the size of data to 2000 characters only. Any idea if I can use more? And how?
  12. I'm using pyodbc to send SQL queries to a filemaker 11 server. I can read data, no problem. I can update data, no problem. But when I attempt to insert data, no errors are thrown but no records are added to the database.
  13. Sorry If this is a little basic, but I couldn't seem to find a straight answer on this. If I have developed a database with FMPA 13 can I host it using FM server 11? If it does work, does it need to be accessed with FMP 11 clients or FMP13 clients for all functionality to work?
  14. I am running FMS v11.0.2.217 Users are running 10.0 v3, I just realized a few are running 10.0 v1. Server is Windows 7 Pro SP1 In the last 30 days, 2 different times, When Windows Updates were applied, I am unable to log in to the database from all computers. The first time, I had to rebuild all the databases and restart all the PCs. The second time, All the PCs were restarted and can access the databases, but the server itself cannot login to the files. Here is the error I get on the server (note, no other users are affected): Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Appli
  15. Hi good day everyone, i would like to ask some help or give me some idea about database back up using maped network shred folder. is it possible to back my database using the shared folder from my another computer? or any the networked drive map.
  16. I'm scripting an ODBC import (Microsoft SQL Server) from a hospital information system. I'm using this infomation to construct a report containing "notes" which can be viewed/printed else where in a different FM11 file. I'm unsure as to the best way to approach importing these records and I was hoping to get some opinions on the circumstance: Background Info: I have a relational key that can be used to join imported records to existing filemaker records. I have an ODBC driver installed on each workstation in order to access the appropriate SQL tables via FM 11 ODBC import. Ap
  17. Can FileMaker 11 Server Advance be upgrade using FileMaker 12 Server (regular Version not advanced). ??
  18. I have an input system in FMP11 that uses a dialog box with a global field to input quantities for each record. On click OK the script will add the value in the record proper field. The users should enter just one number in that dialog box global field (e.g.: "10" or "-10"). I'm trying to create a validation script to make sure that the users don't type weird stuff except that one number. (It happened that they typed expressions and spaces, making the system fail. e.g.: "+10-5+ 30- 15" ). So far I got to his: Once typed the value in the Custom dialog GLOBALFIELD and click
  19. Fairly sure the issue is localized to the one client, but I cannot find the issue. This one newly installed client cannot see the files remotely hosted on our server, the other 400 clients have no issues. I've confirmed it is this one PC my installing NMAP on the client and scanning the server and it can see port 5003 open on the server. I've went even further and installed Wireshark on the client and filtered the server IP and tried to connect, wireshark showed no communication with the server, not even an attempt. This leads me to believe the issue is 100% with the client, but I don'
  20. Using FM 11 Server Advanced  I am having a problem with IWP. On the attached picture there is a list of students with choices for teachers to input classes for next year. The choices were set up as a value list and radio buttons. All the students are defaulted to Standard (Using the client). When the teachers access the internet file and select a different radio button, it will only update one student at a time. Is there anyway the teacher can go down the list, click on the desired radio button for each student and then submit the selections to the server?  Is there some script that wi
  21. I'm doing something new so pardon me if I don't have all the details. My Company would like to get daily snapshots, for example, how many orders are in-house. Then you can graph and track the trend: are the number of orders going up or going down. My understanding is that the server (Filemaker 11 server standard) can utilize the "Schedule" feature to run the script. "created a schedule", selected my database and entered username/password. Selected the script to run. No timelimit, Set the frequency (currently every 1 minute since i'm testing it) My script: Goto TrendTab
  22. As stated above, no idea where this came from. Last successful edits performed a few days ago, today, no modifications allowed. Logged in as admin remotely as well as on the server itself, same behavior. Can't change anything in the file, or in the security settings etc. This is on the MacPro running 10.6.8, latest available OS patches, server version, running with IWP, all other web options off. Security: FM accounts only; List only authorized DBs; SSL enabled. I did install the SSL patch for 11 several weeks ago, but no adverse effects were noted at the time...
  23. This import script has run for 1-2 months non-stop, no problems. The script runs fine when: 1) I run the script manually from the scheduler in FileMaker Server Admin console. 2) run from FileMaker Pro But I m not really interested in any manual approach. The problem is that when the scheduler in FileMaker Server Admin console executes the script every 5 mins; an email is issued in essence telling me this: last scripting error (718).
  24. Hi fmforums! I'm drawing up a simple database management tool to manage multiple databases in FMP11. Nothing fancy, just the ability to assign users to multiple databases on FMServer 11, and then run a script to add these users to the assigned databases. I have created the following fields in my database table: Filename ExportFilename SvrLocation WinLocation MacLocation on the basis that the database filename would be recorded under filename and the full path to it would be recorded under WinLocation - if stored on a PC, MacLocation, if stored on a Mac and SvrLocation if stor
  25. Hello Everyone Today I installed the "fms_11.0.5.510" updater to my database server and my web server.  I needed to run the "fms11patch" installed  in order to get the admin console working again. Once I logged into the admin console again I was greeted with a big old error message that I have never seen before.  When I am viewing the "Filemaker Server Overview" page there is a red light with a error message stating " Server Status Information - An error was encountered communicating with the server" I have attached a screen shot - the odd thing is all my Filemaker web services appear to
