  1. LS, I am trying to enable Web Publishing tool in FileMaker Server 12.05 on a Windows 7 x64 with Java 7 (update 75) and IIS running (World Wide Web Publishing Service running normally) . but I am facing this wired error which I can't get rid of. Tried a lot of things I saw on the internet without any luck. I have attached a snap of the error as well. Any tips or ideas are highly appreciated it.
  2. Hello Group! Is it possible to import many images into my FM file from a very basic unlinked excel file? If so any tips are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance, Chichi
  3. I have noticed for quite a while now (a few years) that often when I try to reopen a hosted file that FMPA will spin for 20-30 seconds and respond with "file not available on this server..." error. But upon retrying it a 2nd time, it always comes right up. Anyone else run into this? This has happened on FMS12, 13 and 14 for me. This has been across multiple servers (same client location), different machines/clients, and different files. It has been just a minor annoyance so I haven't tracked it real well: I can't attest to whether it happens every single time I open the file; or perhaps it is only after leaving the office (after properly shutting a file down), and then coming back to the office the next day; or ?? Anyone else had something similar happen? -- Justin

    pc FileMaker 12 Server where to buy

    Does anyone know when I can buy FileMaker Server 12 ? I'm currently on version 11 and want to upgrade. Can some please help me out? Thanks, John
  5. Greetings! I've inherited an instance of FileMaker Server 12 that is hosting 100+ files, and 80% of them haven't been used or even logged into in years. 5% are used regularly, and 15% are used very occasionally. The issue is I haven't the foggiest idea which is which. Does anyone have any clever ideas on how I could, in one fell swoop, figure out which ones have fallen out of use? Are there database file properties hiding somewhere? In a perfect world, I would like to know: The date any user last logged into a file; The date any user last edited any data in the file; The account name of those users; The date the file was actually hosted. (I realize the answer is probably no, but I can dream, right? And there has to be SOME way to figure this out besides asking 500 people which databases they use...) Any and all ideas are welcome. Thanks! - Joy
  6. Hi, As we know that we have option to configure FileMaker Server with PHP (which is installed on IIS).. Like the way.. I have another question.. Do we able to configure FileMaker server with PHP Which is installed on Apache (with Linux machine).. Please clarify.. If you already experienced please help us to configure Filemaker 12 server with Apache.. Many Thanks ~Guru
  7. Hi, I'd like to sort records using value lists as well as text fields. My FirstName field works (try Steve) but I'm at a loss on how to make the valuelist sort records correctly. I want to search records from CA in my State valuelist. Here's a link and the php code. Thanks All! http://ssvtennis.com/valuelistsort.php valuelistsort.php
  8. When I try to open the FMS12 Console, I see a dialog   Is this because I'm running Java 7.75?  I could not find any settings in System Preferences or Safari Preferences that had to do with certificates.   This occurred on Yosemite.  On Mavericks, nothing at all happens when I click the Start Admin Console button.  Please give me some suggestions.  --Doug  EDIT:  Fixed with installation of version 12.0.5 on Yosemite.  Off to install 12.0.6 on Mavericks to see if that helps there.
  9. Maybe I’m the last one to notice this, but I’ve come to appreciate that Filemaker Server backups don’t replace the copy of any database that has not changed during the daily backup for instance. The result is that if one has the verification box checked it doesn’t happen for those databases. What’s interesting is that one can see the pattern of change simply by looking at the pattern of successful consistency checks. Where I seem to recall reading about databases where there is no change, not being replaced with each backup, I don’t recall anyone mentioning that by implication there would be no verification happening in those circumstances. Did I get that about right? Useful to know for sure when a manager or development team member asks. Bill Bill LeDrew bledrew@mac.com ORC Filemaker Support Wizards of the Coast
  10. Hello, was wondering if someone could share some insight onto how server scripts handle global variables. I have an email script set on a schedule that, as part of it, moves between layouts. One of the layouts it goes through has a script trigger for OnLayoutEnter that changes the custom menu set based upon username. The 'Install Menu Set' aspect of that script trigger breaks the email schedule and forces an abort. I've tried to work around that by using: If $$Script = 1 Exit Script End Ifin my script trigger. Then declaring Set Variable [$$Script; Value: 1] <email stuff with layout changes> Set Variable [$$Script; Value: ""] in my email script. But, the schedule seems to ignore the global variable and proceed to run through the script trigger, breaking itself. Am I doing something wrong or can I just not use global variables in scripts run by schedules? Any help appreciated.
  11. Filemaker website says this combination works, but how is it in real life? Am I missing anything significant by not going to Server 13? I'm currently running FMS 10 on Mac OS 10.6.x. If I go to Server 13, I'd have to update my OS as well as Parallels and I'd rather avoid that. Also, how do the concurrent user licenses work with FMS 12? Or is that specific only to version 13?
  12. Hi, I was successful in creating records with drop down valuelists from my db, now I'd like an edit form on a new page to show those values and edit them. I only see the unedited drop down lists in the edit form. Here is some code: $layout =& $fm->getLayout('mylayout'); $values = $layout->getValueList('statelist'); $statelist = '<select name="State">'; foreach ($values as $value) { $statelist .='<option value="' . $value . '">' . $value . '</option>'; } $statelist .= '</select>'; $edit = $fm->newEditCommand('mylayout', $_POST['id']); $edit->setField('State', $_POST['State']); $edit->execute(); $record = $fm->getRecordById('mylayout', $_GET['id']); $State = $record->getField('State'); <td><?php echo $statelist; ?></td> Thanks so much!
  13. Hi Am running FMS12 - I found the post regarding server import export and have followed these instructions. http://fmforums.com/forum/topic/64713-server-side-imports-and-exports/ However the script that I set up to import a file is failing, I believe this is because it is not finding the file to import, although I get no error only a time out, and given the test is for but 100 records am certain that it is not because of inadequate time to run it. I have tried: Setting up a variable to Get (DocumentsPath) & "[filename].xls" Have added "file:" and "filewin:" types to precede that so "file:" & Get ( DocumentsPath ) & "Kinds.xls" and "filewin:" & Get ( DocumentsPath ) & "Kinds.xls" Have used the "Get (DocumentsPathListing) to gather the files in the documents folder and used the explicit path to try to import from that. Alas to no avail. Noted that the directory uses back slashes not forward slashes (as the documents path listing shows) when I view this in properties, so I've even tried the path from there. Am exporting fine into the directory using the same variable, was then hoping to switch to another layout and import the same records back in, works fine on standard FMP, but just can't get it working on FMS. Any ideas would be gratefully received. Thanks
  14. Hi all, I'm new here so I hope I get everything right. I've done a search already, but I can not find my issue listed. Sorry if it's been covered before. OK, here goes..... VMWare Server running on HP Prolient G7 tin 2 Virtual Cores 4Gb RAM Windows Server 2012 R2 DataCenter x64 IIS v8.5 (Default for 2012 R2) FileMaker Server 12 FileMaker Pro 12 Advanced with Bonjour JRE v7 This is a brand new build specificity for this use. I've installed FileMaker Server 12 on to the above setup with Custom Web Publishing using PHP I followed the deployment wizard and deployed for a single machine setup. I allowed FMS to install the provided version of PHP with it's own configuration. There is NO SSL configuration on the server at present. The admin console shows three green ticks to indicate that everything is happy. However, when I run the PHP Custom Web Publishing Test, I get the page displayed correctly, (PHP is working) and it identifies the name of the server, but below the main information box, I get the following error message: The PHP connection to the FMServer_Sample database failed. The PHP test was not able to communicate with the Web Publishing Engine. Make sure you have PHP publishing enabled and the database has the fmphp extended privilege enabled. (Error 22; Unknown error) The sample database is installed and it is listed in the admin console, status, normal and dots across the line. I can't imagine that it wasn't installed with the correct Extended Privileges for CWP and I would not be 100% confident to know what I should check for. I am viewing the CWP Test webpage on both the server and a client and getting the same error message. Can anyone suggest any further areas that I should be looking at? Cheers in advance, Barry.
  15. I have a script that 1) loads a layout and on that layout there are a series of calculations that take a few minutes to calc. 2) it them exports that data to a CSV The script runs fine on a workstation (filemaker Pro 12), but when running on the server (server 12) it doesn't complete. It actually does run the scripts successfully, but no data is exported. After much troubleshooting, I think the problem is that the server is not waiting for the calculations to load before it goes on to the next step. as an example, on the workstation the process takes about 20 minutes to complete, yet on the server the script is over in about 15 seconds. Is there a way to force the server to wait for the calculations to complete before continuing with the next script step?
  16. Hi All, Â Need a help urgent. Â I have written a Filemaker server side Script. All the script steps are correct according to me. Howerver, when i run on the FM Sever 12, it gives script error.

  17. I'm moving my FX solutions from FMS11 to FMS12 and there are a few problems along the way. I'm finding that passing the current record number into the parameter '-recid' does not result in a successful edit. I get an error 101. Is there a change with Filemaker 12 in the name or syntax of the current record id? Gary
  18. Hello A customer of mine runs a mainly Windows environment. They have troubles with Java to log in the admin console. The Windows (Server and clients) supporter has not the time to update the server and the clients at the moment (the licences are available). He thinks, updating the server in a first time and run the solution with FileMaker Pro 11 clients could do the trick for the moment. Will that work? Should I ask him to give updating to 11v5 Server one more chance? Thank you for your feedback
  19. I integrated a credit care payment gateway (by Nelix Transax) into my database solution about two years ago. What I was not aware of at the time was the fact that the gateway provider requires my server to be scanned on a quarterly basis by ControlScan (even though I do not record or maintain any credit card information in my database). My solution also includes SeedCode's Zulu software creating an iCal server (using port 80). My most recent scan failed as a result of two vulnerabilities: the web server autoindex is enabled and the Apache ETag header discloses inode numbers. In my web server deployment, I have turned off PHP and Instant Web Publishing but I have to use XML (for Zulu). Since FileMaker is using it's own copy of Apache, I can't find how to correct the two vulnerabilities causing my scans to fail. I would certainly appreciate any guidance or insights that anyone might have. (I am hosting my database solution via FileMaker Server Advanced [although the About window STILL says] on OSX 10.8.5. I have not upgraded my server machine to Mavericks due to the issue with FM Server 12 and Mavericks preventing the server from sending e-mails.)
  20. Running Server Advanced on Mac Server 10.8.5 Started having an issue last week when the web servers certificate was replaced. Now the PHP publishing just does not connect (for the Test Page I get an XML error: not well-formed (invalid token) The IWP sample DB works perfectly, however ever other IWP DB does not open and gives a FM Web Publishing - - wpc1 Error: 500 "/fmi/iwp/cgi?-authinfo" 500 10356 I'm assuming that these are related. Do I need to reinstall FMS or is there a setting that I'm missing somewhere?

    pc Enable XML Web Publishing

    Hi Guys, We currently have a FileMaker Server instanace running, it already has PHP web publishing running. I'm just wondering is it as simple as ticking enable XML web publishing for it to be up and running or have I got to restart the server?? Thanks
  22. We have a (fortunately) backup server we are trying to bring up and we testing our PHP/CWP solutions on it as the last step. Up to this point, everything seemed to be working fine: all the canned server tests (well, IWP and CWP) had worked OK; a couple of add-ons appeared to be working fine; client access was good; custom IWP solutions were good. Then we ran into a problem with the CWP solutions that we have. We have a login system where you start at an Index page, it reroutes you Login if you aren't logged in. The initial redirection and showing of the login page works OK. But when you log in, it apparently fails to authenticate you and just returns error: "XML error: Not well-formed (invalid token) at line 1" (or something like that). The failed login attempt doesn't show up in the FMS logs, either. So it is almost as if it isn't even contacting the server. These CWP pages are working fine under the live server (thankfully), which is configured very similarly: Windows 2008 R2 FMSA 12.05 SSL two plugins that run as tomcat processes IIS 7.5 (using URL re-write for HTTPS redirection) We have even had them running on an OSX based server without problems. I think that I discovered the apparent cause of the CWP problems, at least, but I would like to know WHY, and how to fix it if someone knows: I had to remove the 'hostspec' definition from the dbaccess.php file we use. remove the 'hostspec' definition from "dbaccess.php" = works define 'hostspec' in "dbaccess.php" = fails remove the 'hostspec' definition from "dbaccess.php" = works I found this because the canned FMS CWP test does not use a 'hostspec' definition. I suspect that it may have something to do with the php.ini or various other FMS configuration files around there. You see, we didn't have SSL installed at first, but installed it after FMS was setup. So during the installation of SSL, I have previously discovered that there are a few files you have to manually adjust (I posted about them here), even if you do a redeployment. But, it could also be because of some IIS redirection issue, it seems. Any ideas? Thanks, Justin
  23. Today, sixty minutes before terminating an assignment my MacMini crashed on me. It's no longer working, it doesn't want to reboot. The Server HD drive is no longer accessible. Good things the scheduled backups were done on the second drive (MacIntosh HD). In two days from now I have an important contract and I need to have access to my database. I was able to get to the AppleStore before it closed and got another MacMini. Unfortunately, any new Mac comes with Yosemite as the OS. I've tried to install FMS 12 and the installation stops asking to have "Bonjour" enabled. At this moment I running out of solutions. I cannot find anything which would help me to enable Bonjour. My last resort will be ton install FileMaker Pro and make it shareable through the network. I did it and seems to work fine. However, my preferred scenario would be to have FMS 12 installed on this new MacMini with Yosemite. Has someone been able to installed FMS 12 with Yosemite as the OS? Tomorrow I only have 120 minutes I can dedicate to making this work. Any help greatly appreciated ! Many thanks. Daniel P.s.: in case someone ask, installing FMS 13 is not a feasible solution. If this is the case, I will wait for my next contract to finish and look on the Internet for a MacMini with Mavericks.
  24. I've never seen anything like this, but as I was troubleshoot an unrelated issue, I happened upon a table of records that contained the following errors. (See attachment) I've already run a verification check on the file and is passed, so I'm at a loss as to what would cause this. Should I be concerned? Screen Shot 2014-02-24 at 1.54.16 PM.pdf
  25. Per FileMaker, FMS 12v6 is supposed to solve issues running on OS X Mavericks 10.9 http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13131 I followed the instructions, including the uninstall of my existing FM12 installation, reboot, and reinstall. Everything is now up and running (FileMaker itself, Web Publishing Engine, and IWP works). However, after a reboot, I can't get into the Admin console : when I try to launch it: * admin_console_webstart.jnlp downloads * admin_console_webstart.jnlp won't open by double-clicking (unidentified developer warning) however if I right-click and choose "Open" it will launch * Java then runs but I get an error "Admin Server Manager Unavailable" * if I try the fmsadmin commands in terminal, for example: fmsadmin start adminserver * I get the following error: Error: 10006 Complexity: I am running OS X 10.9.1 and OS X Server 3.0.2 Any ideas?
