  3. Hi Guys, I've been using CloudMail for a couple of years now to send marketing campaigns for my company. Just recently I have moved to remote hosting with AWS and now my server is offsite I have noticed some performance issues with cloudmail and a few other areas of my solution. To address these issues I have started using server-side scripts to perform labour intensive tasks such as creating bulk records (20,000) at one time. This has resulted in excellent performance once again. The problem I can't seem to fix is sending my email campaigns using server-side scripts. I have confirmed the plugin is installed etc on the server and with quite a bit of trial and error, I am still unable to send the campaigns. Does anyone have a sample script they use, or any advise how I can get this working? I appreciate any help and thanks in advance Regards, Jason
  4. I think there was some instructions somewhere, but I cannot find them . I have a created local file and server file. Both contain the exact same data. I want to deploy this solution, but I want to avoid a massive first-time sync. How can I avoid a massive first-time sync?
  5. Hi all I have three backup schedules: hourly, daily and weekly. To reduce any lag experienced by end users during the day I am wondering if I should do away with the verification step for the hourly one, which would speed up the backup. I would keep it on the other two and would be emailed by FMS if there were an issue. But if there were a crash and I wanted to restore from the hourly one, how do I know the data integrity is OK? Obviously if there were an issue I would use the older daily one, but that is a risk I'd be willing to take if it sped things up. Thanks
  6. This has long been an issue, I have no idea why it happens and it is making life quite difficult Win Server 2012 FMS 16 (current but this happens on other configurations) With ScriptMaster installed run a script which resets the server ( SMReset) and then loads jars and functions return to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box run another script on the server which just returns to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box dialog 1 SHOWS the modules you installed dialog 2 is EMPTY fmsadmin restart fmse do the above again, same result this means you can not do a test on the server to see if a particular function is loaded before you want to use it.... in fact there is no test you can do to see if the ScriptMaster has fallen over as far as I can tell. Any solutions???

    New to Server

    Hi All, I have been using Filemaker since ver3 but only for my own use, at work and at home, but only for my needs. Currently I've created a couple apps that I would like to share with my coworkers when they are out in the field so I bought a little server and am trying to download filemaker server 16 onto it. I bought it specifically with windows 7 pro because I had read that was a good os for it but after trying to install and it not working, I see now I should have purchased windows server. Can I get some help as to what I actually need. I would like to run my apps through web browser or fmp go and I would like to not spend a lot. I would appreciate any advice. Thank you. Also, please note that although I'm not completely new to fmp or computers, I am not strong at anything beyond a personal use level, so if you would, please keep your assistance to vocabulary that will make sense to me.
  8. I'm running FMS 16 on macOS 10.12.6. FMS is up and running, and I can access the hosted databases. But I can't get into the admin console. When I enter the credentials, it just sits there. It doesn't throw an error. It just doesn't react at all. Same thing when I intentionally enter an incorrect passcode. No error. Same behavior whether I use Firefox or Safari. Same behavior whether I try to come in remotely, or if I work directly from the server as localhost. So, something is wrong with web services rather than FMS, right?

    FMP Server 11 Advanced

    So, I have been using FileMaker since the day it came out in the 1980s and was produced by Deneba. we are a small law firm and are currently using FileMaker Pro 11 on about eight or nine clients in the office and FileMaker Pro server 11 in the office. Not one crash in about seven or eight years. However now because of our VPN issues it looked like we were going to have to upgrade all of our FileMaker system but then I decided to try the IW P, putting the database on the Internet. However after a lot of checking and googling it appears that while FileMaker Pro 11, FileMaker Pro 11 advanced, FileMaker Pro server 11 advanced cane each published to the website that FileMaker Pro server 11 cannot. So the question is where can I purchase a copy of FileMaker Pro server 11 advanced? Anyone have any suggestions? I don't want to upgrade the entire office to the next levels because everything is simply working beautifully. Thanks for any information you can provide. rayseligman@gmail.com

  12. Hi all, I have a FM Server Advanced 12 Win hosting a large CRM relational database. Since my company recently opened a new unit in a neighboring country I was asked to prepare a clone of the existing CRM for their use. I intend to run both CRM’s on my server and for this purpose I’ve changed the names of all localized database files. But all the rest (relationship names, Tables names, scripts etc.) will remain the same. Does anybody know if doing so I’m risking a possible interference between two CRM’s? Is it possible that by mistake a script from one CRM, even if the files have different names, but the structure of files is exactly the same, ends in the other? Thanks for any advice! Best regards, I
  13. I'm setting up a new server, FM13 on a Mavericks mac. Â I've followed the server interaction for the plug-in but i get an error when i enable it. Â Any suggestions? Â Â
  14. LS, I would like to know if there is a white paper / best practises document of perform script on server ? Specifically, I would like some tips on how to do debugging of scripts that perform on server. I have some scripts that run fine on client, no errors. No result on server. TIA
  15. Not sure what's causing this, but we've had a great deal of trouble with using the Pop3It plug-in on the server. (Works just fine on the client side.) One customer complained about performance issues until we disabled the plug-in, and at another install the plug-in appears to have shut down all of the script schedules, even ones not using the plug-in. When we try to edit the FM script schedules we get the message "No scripts available for specified account" (untrue, and we get that message for all host files/accounts/scripts). The server error log gives us a message that we have to restart the script service via the command line (fmsadmin start fmse). We're hoping that a server restart will do the trick, but we're worried about the problem cropping up again. Can anybody give us any insight about what might be happening? (And how to correct it.) Will this be a problem with any server-side plug-in we use?
  16. I am going with a mac mini, maxed at 16gb, and with four cores, either the current or the new ones, which I expect to have pci ssds (which is no big deal if you'll be running your db from ram anyway), for a 50 strong company with 1-6 concurrent connections, for the time being. I ‘ll have for starters about 2-3 go clients, 5 desktop clients, and the rest will be webdirect. On average I would expect 3 people to be inputting at any time and about another 3 browsing the db. Are there any red flags that I should be aware of?
  17. I am looking for general advice regarding an unusual use of FileMaker.  In my work I use FileMaker to track content for museum exhibition design. This is basic stuff: what does the artifact look like, what are its dimensions, what is the text label, what display case does it go in, and other related data. I have experimented with creating a layout that works as a “digital label” in FileMaker Go or in kiosk mode on a touch screen that uses the data collected in the content management database, indeed, they can be the same file.  FileMaker makes it easy to have a really great label with swipes, pop-ups, images, everything that a museum visitor would want to learn more about what they are looking at, and I have fashioned a second no-nonsense interface for the curators and museum staff to update, edit, add, and delete records (“labels”) as required. (See attached JPG for a sample “label” layout.)  Now the problem...  A client is interested in this digital label idea, but they want to use it with touchscreens attached to computers rather than on iPads, which means purchasing FileMaker for each display (40 of them!) and, possibly, running FileMaker Server. This project is meant to be an add-on and I’m not sure if using FileMaker Pro rather than FileMaker Go would be a cost effective way to proceed.  I’m interested in the community’s evaluation of the following options. (Please note that I am a low-to-mid level FileMaker user and know nothing of PHP, SQL, or stuff like that, except that they exist and can do some of the stuff I want to do. I can get someone else to do the work if leaving FileMaker is the best option.)  Option 1: FileMaker Server with 40 copies of FileMaker Pro connected to a database on the server. Staff can update the database from their offices and the changes are reflected in the “digital labels” (FileMaker running in kiosk mode on touchscreens) in the exhibition space .  Option 2: FileMaker Pro for staff to edit records and FileMaker Server using custom web publishing (PHP?) with web browsers (or equivalent) acting as digital labels in the exhibition space.  Option 3: Use the original FileMaker database as a source for some other content management system that can be accessed with web browsers (or equivalent), in other words, a completely custom solution.  I’m not looking for detailed proposals, specs, or anything technical. What I would like are general observations about the strengths or weaknesses of each model, or even a new model, that could be maintained by a small museum with almost no in-house tech staff.  And just a side note, it would be great if FileMaker made a simple FileMaker client for desktop systems, similar to FileMaker Go. This would, I think, be one solution to my problem.  Thanks,  -Robert. Â
  18. FileMaker Pro 15 Launch Center connects to our AWS instance with no problem. But then it reports No files are currently hosted on AWS instancename. Well, there ARE files currently hosted. We access them via WebDirect, so they must be hosted. Moreover, when we launch a local copy of the file, FileMaker offers to open the remote copy with This file has previously been uploaded to FileMaker Server. Use Hosted Version? It even displays the proper address for the hosted file. However Use Hosted Version returns this error: The file “filename.fmp12“ could not be opened. (Extended privilege disabled) So, we created a privilege set that extended privileges for fmwebdirect, fmapp and fmxdbc. On the next launch of Remote Version, we got this: FileMaker cannot share a file because FileMaker network sharing is turned off. So, we turned on ODBC sharing, and on the next launch, we got this: FileMaker cannot share files because another user is already sharing files using FileMaker Pro on this computer. I’m going in circles here. Are these errors related? What am I doing wrong?
  19. A couple of questions... I have two tables Customers, and Customer Employees. Customers is the parent table to Customer Employees. On a layout based on Customers there is a portal of Customer Employees on the right hand side, and fields which contain more details about a given Customer Employee on the left hand side of the layout. By clicking on a Customer Employee in the portal, a global field in the Customers table is set to the primary key of the Customer Employee which creates the relationship that displays the details about that Customer Employee. When creating a new Customer Employee record, a set of global fields are passed to the server through the script parameter as a list and then parsed by the server. I want to have the primary key of the new record created to be the new value in the global field in the Customers table so the user sees the details of the new record created. It appears to work simply by having the server set that value, however will this work with multiple users creating records simultaneously? Will each user get the value in his global field for the record he just created, and only that value? Secondly, I understand that a PSOS cannot be called from a script running on the server. Does that also imply that a field with a modification trigger cannot run a PSOS if that modification results from a different PSOS? Thanks.
  20. On two Filemaker Server machines I manage, I cannot get FTPeek to activate. After checking the checkbox, a grey message appears appears stating that the plugin was enabled, but the checkbox is unchecked. I have checked the permissions of the plugins. Both owned by fmserver and group fmsadmin. I have restarted the machines. I have tried Wim's suggestion of installing with server-side script. Both have Java 1.6 installed. Both have the BaseElements plugin installed and successfully enabled. Both are running FMS 14.04. One is a Mac mini running Yosemite, with Core 2 Duo processor and 8gb. Other is a Mac mini running El Capitan with Core 2 Duo and 4gb.
  21. Hi, I just posted a new entry on 1-more-thing blog, presenting a 'revolutionary' technique allowed by FileMaker 12. It completely changes my life as a developer, and makes it possible to create very efficient online solutions using FileMaker Pro/Go. It's all explained in this video.
  22. I am having a hard time accessing my database via remote open and vpn. Actually I ‘ve never been able to find the computer serving the db at the office (a mini) as a local host. And that despite being inside the vpn and being able to mount server shares and the like. Oh, and I am on a mac. Anyone have any clue on what could be happening under the hood? (p.s. this isn't fms 13 specific, I 've had it with 12 server too)
  23. In my view, in the world of FileMaker Server the concerns of owners and admin with FMS11 and earlier are little different to those of FMS14 admins today. Yes, the product has developed and we now have the new appearance layer from 12 onwards, and WebDirect from 13 on. But, the underlying issue remains, how do you get to understand FileMaker Server and get the best out of it, when it is trivial to build a very "bad" FM solution that is slow and unscaleable and when FMI provides no comprehensive and clear advice? FM software does little to prevent folk using the freedom of FM in that manner, because as an "enabling" and "accessible" type of software it lacks the controls, the digital police, that a more prescriptive system may include. It also works very hard to keep users of legacy systems on-board and supported and their solutions inevitably include much that would regarded as poor design today and hence cannot easily deprecate old techniques, so FMI's options are limited. Hence my having been developing a "mobile first" design framework since April 2012, and having eventually worked out what does work, I was encouraged by various folk to develop my report on "Understanding and Tuning FileMaker Server Performance" and publish. I have also published an early version of part of the report here on FMHacks and done two videos for Richard Carlton Consulting here and here which cover some of the report material. My work has been validated by folk at FMI (who wish to remain anonymous), Wim Decorte, Richard Carlton and Alan Stirling. This is the first detailed and comprehensive report on this subject for many years, you can read it here and download a pdf here. Many of the techniques I have developed, and to which the report alludes, are included in the free and open source Deskspace dsBenchmark tool, which can be downloaded from here. I would encourage your responses, and disagreement, if you feel so moved. We all move forward by rigorously testing both the old and the new and no doubt you can offer improvements and additions to what I have constructed. Where I am persuaded, your input will be included in the ongoing Report and duly credited. The current version of my Report is of course the html pages on deskspace.com, not a dead paper document. In fact wasn't that what Sir Tim Berners-Lee had in mind when he invented and donated http, html and the World Wide Web? This ease of editing is facilitated by our new Deskspace rwApp creating the responsive web pages that comprise www.deskspace.com - but that is perhaps another story. Cheers, Nick
  24. Hi, My FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go cannot find my databases hosted with FileMaker Server. The problem could be very simple, but I am not proficient in servers and have no idea of what could have gone wrong. I have installed FileMaker Server (FMS) to a server computer that also has FileMaker Pro installed. The database was uploaded with FMS, and the status was shown as Normal, with Pro, XSLT, XML and PHP checked. On the FMS Overview screen, the Database Server was only showing ODBC/JDBC as "off". The FileMaker Pro on the server computer was closed. On another computer, or on my iPads, they simply could not detect the databases at all. I tried running the FMS Technology Test on these computers but cannot connect to them either. As a non-specialist in servers I would really appreciate any help and suggestions on how to fix this. Many thanks, MacGuffin
  25. Hello - I searched what I could but I am completely new to these forums so I apologize if I missed another thread. My question is whether it is feasible for a FM professional to take over an existing server given how customizable I understand it to be. Also, assuming it is, where would I go about contacting and vetting said professionals? I can give more information about or specific Filemaker system and current support person as needed. Thanks in advance
