ESS is not possible with 11 and PostgreSQL.  ESS support for PostgreSQL and DB2 was introduced with 15.  For 11 you have to stick with the backends that were supported at the time (MySQL, SQL Server and Oracle - but mind the versions of those and the drivers that are needed, if you have more recent versions of any of these it may not work).

Good for you.  For production I would not recommend it since it is not supported.

It means you can not rely on FileMaker Inc for any support.

You couldn't call on support for FM11 anyway at this point in time but forcing a feature outside of support parameters shows a willingness to forgo support.  Most companies I work with would not be comfortable with that and it would disqualify any work that I do to make it so.
