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 188.8.131.52 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?

I installed CentOS 7 (minimal) on a Mac Mini 6,2 Server model with Dual HD (250 GB SSD), got FMS 19 running on it, all was well.
But if I try to reboot it or restart it the power light comes on but the OS doesn't appear to startup. I thought it was a fluke so I reinstalled everything from scratch, had everything running nicely again, held my breath while I did a reboot ... and the same thing happened.
If I connect a monitor to it after a reboot attempt it's blank, i.e., no Terminal, nothing. It doesn't show up on my network at all.
Is there something in particular I need to do to get this particular Mac Mini model to run CentOS? I Googled and found nothing.
I'd really like to get a little more life out of this machine as a Dev/Test server, so I'd greatly appreciate any help offered.

We are migrating to a new FileMaker Server 19 as the hardware is getting old.
Currently we are running Server 14 with web services enabled.
How can I setup the new server to run both on the same network? Can I change the ports without any problem?
Thanks for the input!
