Can't upload new solution to server

Recommended Posts

-dp-    0

I'm trying to upload a new solution to FMS. When I attempted to connect using the saved credentials, it threw the error "Invalid name/password. Please try again." Unfortunately, the login pane was grayed out, so I could not make any changes. So, I went into Keychain Access and deleted the credentials. Now, there are no saved credentials, but I am still unable to access the login pane. I see my server in Local Hosts, the IP address is correct, and I can access the Admin Console. But I can't log in to upload. I have managed to lock myself out of my own server. How embarrassing is that?

It isn't clear which part of the process you are having trouble with.

You did successfully upload them; but they won't open using open remote?

You can't get them uploaded onto the server?

You are using the FileMaker Server credential to upload; not the solution username/password?

You upload from FileMaker Pro; not server admin.

I am working from FileMaker Pro Advanced. I choose File > Sharing > Upload to FileMaker Server. I am presented with the Upload to FileMaker Server window. I select Local Hosts from the Hosts menu. My server appears in the left pane. I select my server. The right pane contains fields into which I am supposed to enter the Admin Console name and password. I am not able to enter either of these fields, and am consequently unable to enter my credentials.

In order to get functional, I've bypassed this interface. I remoted into the server, put a copy of the solution into the Databases folder, and used Admin Console to open it. I'm up and running, but I still need to figure out what wrong with the normal approach.

There is a new v16 security option that can be unchecked in the admin console which will prevent uploads

Can you please provide more details? I've been through every panel in the Admin Console, and couldn't find anything that sounded like what you mentioned. Under General Settings > Admin Console, there is an item labeled "Enable access restrictions," but that is not checked.

It was to do with password protected files; under database server>> security>>Require Password-Protected Databases

probably not your issue but it did catch me on a couple of files.

I still have not resolved this problem. I can't upload new files to my server, and subsequently discovered that the files that I attempted to host by putting them into the Databases directory are not modifiable.

I have removed and re-installed FMS 16, but that didn't resolve the problem. Can anyone help?

Thanks for the link. It confirmed that the way I hosted the files was one of the correct methods. The files are accessible now, after the reinstallation of FMS, but the direct method of hosting is still broken. 

It's not a browser issue. I can get to the console. The screenshot I posted was from FMA 16, not a browser.

I have the same problem as well. I am using FMS15. I used to be able to upload the files using the client.

Currently, I move the files to FMServer manually and then change the file rights to read/write. It is a bit tedious, but a fix for this problem would be nice.

It's good to know that the problem isn't entirely unique to me. I'm going to phone FMI. If they have a solution, I'll post it.

There is a file called permittedlist.txt. It is located in the  /Users/{username}/Library/Application Support/FileMaker/Shared folder. This Library folder is normally hidden. To view it, go to Finder and open the Go menu while holding down the option key. The option key allows you to select the Library folder. 

Drill down to this file, permittedlist.txt and delete it. Or, to be ultra-cautious,  just rename it. 

Now, when you try to upload a database to FM Server, it will alert you to any SSL certificate issues. When you choose to connect anyway, it will generate a new permittedlist.txt and it will allow you to freshly enter your FM Server admin name and password and upload the file.

      Hey,
      I have a question about hosting my filemaker database. If I buy a license for 5 people form here: https://store.filemaker.com/filemaker-cloud , will I also need to purchase 5 normal FileMaker 16 Pro Client licenses so people can actually connect to the database? I don't quite understand how this works yet, maybe someone can help me out. Do I get the client licenses with the purchase of a server license? I need 5 people to be able to access it. Thanks in advance,
      Mike

      Hello all - 
       
      So I got a larger MirrorSync installation to run beautifully between two FMS15 server sites. Sync times are a charm.
       
      My question is what the best practice is to make MirrorSync sync fastest. Currently, our hub server is in a colocation datacenter in Los Angeles with Gigabit connection. 
      The spoke server is in our branch office, syncing through a 100/50 Mbit connection. 
      MirrorSync server runs in the same datacenter as the hub server. 
       
      My question is whether it would make sense to install the mirror sync server at the branch office location instead. That way, mirror sync could connect locally to the spoke server at 1 Gbit, and only pull all changes from the hub server over the 100/50Mbit internet connection. 
      The way we have it now, mirror sync at the data center, it would only connect to the spoke server on the 50/100 Mbit connection. 
       
      Since I don't know how mirror sync handles data traffic to the hub and spoke server (or if there is any difference at all), I don't know which way is better. 
       
      Any advice would be appreciated!

      Did any of you write a grok for logstash or find a way to analyse FileMaker Server logs using elk( elasticsearch / kibana? ) Not really picky on the version.

      Just upgraded to FMP 16.
      Now when I try to log into my solution as an admin by hitting the option key I just go straight into the solution.
      Unfortunately I go straight in as low level user and not as an admin so there doesn't seem to be an easy way to fix this than I can think of.
      Any suggestions?
