Webdirect/Web Stop working - complete steps to re-install?

Recommended Posts

Somehow java updated (probably by mistake) and it killed web direct. Simply down grading java does not work. I've went as far back and un-installing java and then FMS. Then rebooting and performing a clean install of FMS. FMS 16.04 on windows server 2012 R2

My hunch is something is wrong with all the site settings in IIS from uninstall and re-install.

 

I get this error during deployment when trying to use web direct:

Test web server (http://127.0.0.1:80/fmi-test/test.xml): Error code = 404

What are the complete steps to restore web-direct? Thank you

  1. Uninstall Filemaker Server
  2. Uninstall All Java Versions
  3. Delete Filemaker Server Folder in Program Files(or rename it)  and/or Move/Keep the databases and what's important somewhere temporary)
  4. Reboot
  5. Install Filemaker Server
  6. VIOLA! Works fine now.

      Hello,
      I have a simple leaflet.js map which is working completely offline. All the references in the HTML5 code are absolute and refer to local files.(javascript, css, tiles).
      I noticed - and was really surprised - that I was able to copy the HTML5 code into a global field and run it a web viewer (FM 18, Windows 10, Chrome browser).
      (Up to now, I thought that all external references should be included in an HTML calculation.)
       
      When I tested the same file on my Mac (and changed of course all the paths to the new paths on the mac) I couldn't get it to work. It seems that MacOS isn't able to do so.
      (Mac OS 10.14 Mojave, Safari). Is this true?
       
      any help is much appreciated,
      Dimitris

      Hi,
      I have a performance conundrum that I have not been able to figure out for the past month and a half or so and am looking here for some guidance. 
      We have a 9-year old FM system that we run our entire Production operation on. We have approximately 150 users in 9 locations across the US and Canada for this solution.
      We have a Windows Server 2012 VM with 14 CPU Cores, 60GB RAM, and an SSD Array SAN that we run our Production Server on. We have separate Drives configured for the Operating System and Data. All users not in the facility housing the server use Remote Desktop to access the system.
      The design of this system is not optimal for performance, but it has been running very well for the last 2 years (until early February 2020).
      In early February, it began to stall no matter what we did when we had more than 120 users or so connected and working normally.
      We identified several severely taxing actions, mainly Finds on related tables with millions of records, and eliminated those. No luck.
      We added unnecessary extra CPUs, RAM, and Disk space to no avail.
      We created a completely new VM with a fresh install of FM Server 16. No love.
      Finally in desperation, we moved the server to older, slower hardware with non-SSD hard drive array and voila! the system works fine again.
      This older VM is similar in every other way: Windows Server 2012, 14(slower) CPU Cores, 60GB(slower)RAM, FastSCSI Disk Array.
      As an anti-bonus, in thinking this would be temporary, we have both the OS and the Data on a single C drive on this older hardware.
      It works splendidly on this lesser setup.
      We had all variety of hardware experts in to make sure the newer/faster setup was performing correctly. We updated all firmware and restarted the whole setup. 
      All benchmark tests show the newer system to be considerably faster in all phases, especially Disk.
      We have no problems with any other VMs on this newer/faster setup(including some less intensive Filemaker Servers).
      The one thing that occurs on the newer/faster machine that DOES NOT happen on the older/slower one, is that it stalls and the Disk is consumed by writing tons of data to FMTEMPFM* files for an extended period of time while there is no increase in data being written to the .fmp12 files.
      This particular FM Server and dataset is the only one that this happens to. We have two other FM Servers on there that have 200 plus users 24 hours a day and nary an issue.
      Does anyone know what is happening when the Disk Monitor shows the System Process is writing tons of data to FMTEMPFM files and not writing any more data than normal to the .fmp12 files?
      Thanks in advance for any guidance.
      Dave

      When opining the FMS localhost I try to enable the ScriptMaster Plugin. 
      For some reason I click to enable the plugin, I sometime been able to click on save sometime..
      However, each time I close the host reopen the FMS localhost, the plugin is ALWAYS disabled.

      Update available for the entire 360Works plug-in platform providing improvements for both macOS Catalina and Windows
      360Works plug-ins and products improve the capabilities of FileMaker by adding functionality to the FileMaker platform for sync, email management, web services, payment processing, image and file storage, FTP transfers, Apple/Google/Exchange calendar integration, Microsoft Office document manipulation, and much more.

      We have released new versions of the plug-ins within our product suite with improvements for use on both Mac and Windows operating systems:
      New signed versions of our plug-ins will prevent macOS Catalina from trying to block it. Plug-ins are now notarized to comply with macOS changes in this update. For Windows users, we implemented better handling of child processes. If there is a hard crash, we detect and clean up java processes left running the next time the plug-in starts up. We improved our plug-in logging which will prevent hangups on background logging threads. For registering our plug-ins, we fixed issues with the registration dialog where the registration would not persist.
