FINALLY a Linux production version - and promptly running into issue connecting

Recommended Posts

Hello Crew: 


So during beta, everything worked fine and I was delighted to see FMS 19 for Linux go into the first production release. 

So we installed Centos 7 anew, put an instance of FMS on it - and it seemed to be running fine. 


First indication of problems: File upload through the Sharing menu option did not seem to be able to connect to the server. 

No biggie - so we hard-uploaded into the opt/FileMaker/FileMaker Server/Data/Database directory, changed ownership and permissions - and voila - the web interface shows the hosted file just fine. 

Webdirect works like a charm and we can access the file. 


ONLY: Accessing that machine from a Filemaker Pro app connects - but something is amiss. 

On first connection, it gives this warning that it is not using a SSL connection - which is weird, we installed the Claris test cert so it should be SSL. 

Second, once we accept that we are connecting to a non-secure server: 

FileMaker Pro 19 app says: 

No files are currently hosted on (HOSTIP). 


WHAT GIVES? I am staring at the open file hosted right in my web admin. I am logged into it on webdirect. 

Why on earth would I not be able to connect through Filemaker Pro 19 from a Mac? 


Am I missing something dead obvious here? 





I am hosting three files on the FMS19 Linux now: 

The sample file; 

a TASKS file; 

and my business File, TEST. 


I can see sample and Tasks - but TEST does not show! What am I doing wrong? 



Thank you!

And on this: using hte Claris test cert is as good as not having an SSL cert; so you'll always get that warning unless you install a custom cert.

      Hi all,
      I would like to create a page count for a found set of records when I am in preview mode and when I export to PDF  ie if a found set of records has 3 pages then the first page would contain a field that reads '1 of 3'
      Can anyone help with how to achieve this?
      Any help is much appreciated

      I cannot select inside an input field at a specific character. Clicking on the field works and selects the field, but I then need to use the arrow keys to go to a specific characters. Mouse clicking at a specific characters does nothing. Anyone has experienced this?

      I moved fields (and scripts) from one FM file to another one.
      Now, I have a table to 2 fields that has same function but different names, example: Container1 and Container2
      Both have their own attached scripts and calculations.
      I would like to merge "container2" into "Container1" field so the attached scripts and calculations will also change, but I can't rename it simply to "container1"
      is there a way to without going through all the scripts and calculations?

      Hi all,
      I have created a portal in a related table and I want to apply a filter to it so that it only shows the latest versions from a found set of records and to hide the others. There is a related field within the portal called 'scan version' which displays the version number as eg 'v001' 'v002' 'v003' etc
      I've been hunting around online to find a calculation that fits my needs and have played around with the 'Max' function but to no avail
      If anyone can give me some pointers that would be awesome, I'm still very new to this and learning so any help is always appreciated!
      If you need any more info please let me know
      I have just worked this out and used the following calculation
      Scans::Scan Versions = Max ( Scans::Scan Versions )
      and it worked!

      I have tried to pass the below JSON data to the API. But it doesn't accept the JSON data due to Square brackets[] in the JSON Key. Is there any solution available to pass the below value?
      JSONSetElement ( "{}" ; "[Name | Last]" ; "Test" ; JSONString )
      We need the output like below.
      "[Name | Last]": "Test"
      Thanks in advance.
