  2. Moving from FMP 14 to FMP 17. PHP getValueListTwoFields works on FMP 14. —> 500 error on FMP 17. if I comment out the command the page displays just fine. I have tried many things nothing works. ——- example —— $layout =& $fm->getLayout('phpPTRequest'); $values = $layout->getValueListTwoFields("VLReason"); foreach($values as $value) { $VLReason .= '<input name="Reason" type="radio" value="' . $value .

  3. Hello, I am trying to convert a custom web publishing site in php, from FM Server 12 to FM Server 15. We've updated the Windows machine that hosts it (to a shared server on the recommendation of IT) and installed FM Server 15. Direct opening of the existing scripts always yields 0 results, though the database hasn't changed. Is there some setting, somewhere, that I am oblivious to? I've consulted user's manuals, IIS settings, web postings, ... Attached is a copy of the website I am running. I can point you to the existing website, though I doubt it would be us
  4. Running FMS 13 and trying to run a simple PHP page from my website to access a database, but I'm only getting a blank page. Not sure if it's a port forwarding issue or a PHP issue, or something else. If I put my .php file and the includes ("FileMaker.php" file and "FileMaker" folder from the FMS PHP .zip file) in the fmi-test folder on my FM server and access it locally (http://localhost/fmi-test/myphpfile.php), the PHP file works fine and returns data, so I don't think it has any inherent issues, and presumably my FMS is set up correctly. Putting the same .php file and includes on my web s
  5. Hi all experts (hopefully), I have just upgraded from FMS12 to FMS16. On the FMS12 server we are running a php solution. I have installed 16 onto a new server, uploaded all the databases (all successfully running) and have copied the php website to the new location on the 16 server. I can see the website from home (so I know the website is in the right place and the DNS s working) BUT I can't seem to connect to the database successfully. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Oh, and it is accessed with https

  7. XML error: No memory at line 1 Greetings, this error occurred when the Filemaker API cannot generate a bunch of records. (1000+ records and above) I've adjusted the time out settings for PHP even the memory limits. Is there any possible solution for this? According to some information, the error turns out that the 10 MB XML scripts is unchangeable. thanks.
  8. FREE fmREST.php – Simplifies & manages PHP connections to FileMaker 16’s REST-based Data API. The newly released FileMaker Server 16 now offers REST access to your FileMaker databases. There’s more about that how this impacts PHP developers here. The bottom line is that to use REST as part of your PHP solution, you would usually need to write a series of cURL functions and you would have to manually manage connecting & disconnecting from your server, and saving your tokens. This is a pain! We know it’s a pain, because we have spent the last several weeks rolling REST
  9. I have a php script that takes two PDF files and merges them into one file. I am using this in conjunction with the insert from URL script step. The way the script works is it takes two PDFs in container fields and base64encode each files. Then, those two base 64 strings are POSTed via insert from URL. I've tested the script forwards and backwards and it does combine the PDF files reliably. The issue is when posting from FileMaker. What typically happens is the first page is combined twice and that's my resultant PDF. My php script checks that both inputs are different and thr
  10. I have a website that is displaying FileMaker data using the PHP API. Is there a way for the web site to display the basic text formatting from a FileMaker field? For example, a few words in the comments field are bold in FileMaker and I would like them to also be bold on the website. Thanks for any ideas.
  11. Hi all We have a web based tickets portal which creates new messages in our filemaker database - this is for customers' use. It does this using the PHP API (the website was developed by a third party). We would like the owners of tickets to be notified when the customer has added a message to one of the tickets that they are in charge of. Is there a way for filemaker/filemaker server to trigger a 'send email' script when a new record is created via the web portal? Or would it be simpler for this action to occur on the web side? Many thanks
  12. Hi, I am relatively new to FileMaker. I am a PHP developer currently working on a project that involves the FMS custom web publishing PHP API. I was able to successfully connect using the API, but the connection is no longer working. The error message says only "Unable to open file". My research says that this could be due to the database file not being open, or to a permissions issue. I can see in the FMS admin console that the database file is open, with "normal" status. The FMWEBDIRECT and PHP columns both have full circles, indicating that the database should be accessible through the P
  13. Hi, I have a field called 'mytournament1'. I also have a field called 'mytournament1played'. With a form, I create the variable $tournament to bring 'mytournament1' to my results page. $tournament = $_GET['tournament']; I'd like to force the results page to search for the field 'mytournament1played' for each record by using the variable $tournament and combining the word 'played' or the variable $played. $played = 'played'; $tournamentplayed = $tournament . $played; $tournamentplayed2 = $record->getField('$tournamentplayed'); (I want it to deliver) $re
  14. I am tasked with troubleshooting a web registration form that queries a Filemaker Pro v12 database via a Filemaker PHP API. The web form had been running well for a couple of months after major revision, when all of a sudden: All dropdowns are empty All radio buttons are missing These symptoms appear to be browser-independent. The appearance of these symptoms is mysterious: Nobody has modified the PHP code for the web form - I've done a compare with a backup done at the time when the web form was not broken and it is identical to what is currently on the ser
  15. Hi, we are using a little sync script via php, which allows us to store all data from a FileMaker DB into our internal MySQL-Database. The only problem iam unable to solve is how to download images from container fields and store them local on our web server. I tried something like: foreach($recordsPersons as $recordPersonsData) { //saving images to /srv/www/htdocs/ $url_orig = urlencode($recordPersonsData->getField('FotoDatei')); // Search for the extension of the file $url = substr($url_orig, 0, strpos($url_orig, "?"));

  17. Greetings - I got my start with CWP using FMwebstudio as the front end library to the FileMaker API (Dreamweaver). That library is no longer maintained. One of very cool things about that library was a dynamic field capability, fmsLiveInputField, where the changes you made in a web page were updated into the database in real time. I used it for event registration where the total attending and fees due automatically updated. I'd like to replicate this functionality ... display the total due, a show a few other live calculations. I prefer a PHP solution but realize javascript m
  18. Hello! Another post... Please help me out. I am trying to create an array from a value list within Filemaker Pro (Using PHP API) The idea is to create an array of names from a value list I have set up... Then put them into an option tag. e.g. $staff = array(FileMaker Value List) ^^ I know that's incorrect, but it shows what I want to do Then with that array I want to be able to Create a HTML option list (I know how I would do that) --- I am just really struggling with creating the array... Here is what I have $database = "comms__web"; $hostname = "###.#
  19. Hello all So I'm pretty new to Filemaker and CWP - I have created a form which people fill out and it stores the data in a filemaker solution. The idea being a script is then run which will notify a user if the form has been submitted. Now I have the script for that and all the Filemaker side completed, as well as the data entry from the PHP form, but I am really struggling with running a script with a parameter... It runs the script, but not the parameter attached. For a bit of context, Someone fills out the form and it is entered into the database, a script is then calle
  20. Server: Windows R2 2008 SP1 FileMaker Server 13 Connections via PHP I have several databases that users connect to via a web browser using php. All has been working correctly until Friday 1/3. I have been assured by IT that the server has not changed. However, the PHP connections are no longer reliable. Sometimes, the user can log in fine. Other times, a user logs in, submits a request, and it looks fine to the user. However, the "Error: Did not receive an XML document from the server." is thrown. Other times, the error is thrown and the user knows something is wrong. Sometime

  22. We are an established vertical market application developer in need of additional programming assistance for the web portion of our solution. We customize each of our FileMaker and companion web site solutions to meet the needs of our clients. The web site architecture is based on a YII MVC design. Programmer should have knowledge of FileMaker PHP API, PHP, HTML, YII (or other MVC), Tortoise SVN and basic Windows server configuration. Ongoing work would be available, all work is remote to our development servers.

  24. I have the same exact solution files setup on 2 separate server stacks. Everything is working perfectly one one, but on the other I'm getting this Communication Error (22) and I cannot figure out why.The message says specifically... The files are exactly the same, though. The FileMaker files themselves and the PHP files. The usernames and passwords are all exactly the same in both places. It's just that they are running on different server stacks. Both, though, are a combination of FileMaker (in-house) with a web server hosted by the same hosting provider.I have a very basic scrip
  25. I would like to edit a value list via a web interface- I have done this using a field ("Use values from field"), but that [I incorrectly assumed, see doughemi's suggestion below!] requires adding/editing a record for each value, while (if possible) the textarea box would allow the editing of the whole value list at once. Genx showed how to display a value list... $layout = $fm->getLayout('my_template'); $list = array_map("htmlentities",(array)$layout->getValueList('my_list')); I am hoping there is some easy way to send back an edited valuelist… We are using Filemaker Server
