Currently running FMS15 on a dell optiplex from 2015. No real issues to speak of. I want to upgrade to FMS17. Was thinking of switching to a Mac Server, wanted to know your thoughts.
I do hit my server now from the outside and plan to use more heavily with images, uploading to my server into image containers, etc.
Why switch...for one, my shop is primarily graphics and Mac based and we are just better all around with Macs. I realize there are probably better hardware configurations getting a new PC.
FMS17: In my Import.fmp12 database, I have specified an external FileMaker database file:Main.fmp12 and added a couple of table occurrences to this file (with the same names as in Main.fmp12) and added the corresponding layouts.
When I open Import.fmp12 from a client, I can see and work with all records of the Main.fmp12 file, just fine. From the client, I can also run any script just fine.
However, when I run the same script as a scheduled script from the server (only with server compatible script steps, of course) the script runs, but I can’t see any record !
Here are some script steps that I use:
Go to Layout [ “Kontakt” (Kontakt) ]
Show All Records
Set Variable [ $id_Käuferbetrieb ; Value: Let ( [ ~fmsql_execute = True ; ~query = " SELECT id FROM Kontakt WHERE Betriebsnummer = ? " ; ~columnSeparator = Tab ; ~rowSeparator = ¶ ; ~result = … ]
And this is what I get:
(Import is a local table and a local layout)
(Kontakt is a local layout with data from a remote table of an external data source from Main.fmp12, with TO «Kontakt»)
I’m puzzled — Any idea what’s wrong?
Thanks a lot for any help!
We have 7 Severs - 3 DB ( xyz1.abc.com (Database Server), xyz2.abc.com (Database Server) & xyz3.abc.com (Web Server (Child of xyz2.abc.com) ) and 3 Citrix Servers where FileMaker client is installed (xyz4.abc.com, xyz4.abc.com & xyz4.abc.com ).
Current relationships are as below:
xyz1>>xyz4, xyz5, xyz6
xyz2>>xyz4, xyz5, xyz6
xyz3>>xyz4, xyz5, xyz6
Could you please help us to know how many SSL Certs we need to purchase in case SAN type?
If we need to purchase SSL certificates from other vendors which are not listed in FileMaker CA, can we purchase it from them and one more concern will that be working fine in FM Server?
I have installed a copy of my website on my local server with installed FMS 17.
Direct contact with the (local copy of the) database works fine through File–>Hosts–>localhost, and I can access the Admin Console via localhost:16001.
When I try to connect via a php script, I get an Error 22 message:
Communication Error: (22) The requested URL returned error: 503 Service Unavailable - This can be due to an invalid username or password, or if the FMPHP privilege is not enabled for that user.
I can run other scripts which do not access the database successfully.
I made this installation so that I had a testbed for my operational website. The database and php scripts are exactly identical to the files on my remote host (except, of course, for the server name in the php connector files).
What steps should I take to isolate the problem?
I just started using FM17. It has been a long time, since FM11 that I have used FM. I am setting up a solution starting with FM Starting point. I created some value lists to use and all of them are fine but something strange keeps happening with one of them. I select the field, the options come up, I pick one, and I get this. "This operation could not be completed because the target is not part of a related table.". Filemaker does make the change when I select a new value from the list. How can I get this warning from a value list? Doesn't this error have to do with a script? I am not running a script that I can see.
