Unlimited auto open Server DB's

We have a FM5 Server hosting DB's, and an Unlimited5 system web serving those DB's. Although Server will auto-open local DB's if restarted, I cannot find a way to have Unlimited go out and auto-open all databases from Server. We've created a script which contains the path for those DB's and use oAzium Events to go out every x-minutes to open any DB's that are closed (closed for changes, etc). Is there ANY way to script the opening of a mass of DB's, within a folder, without calling out the databases by name? Greatly appreciate any help.

We've already done that. We're new to FM scripting. What we've done is manually enter each database to open. What we'd like is to point to a folder and say "open everything in there." Is there a way to open everything in a place or do we have to specify each database?

If you are using a Mac you might be able to call an applescript that would do a "select all" and then "open" within a specified folder...

It would be more of an applescript issue than a FMP one.

      After some time (seems time is random) Filemaker will generate an error of "Database Not Open" when users try to connect to the web front-end I have created (when, in fact, when I look at the console, FMP is maximized and running-all DBs ARE open, I can perform things on the open DBs from within FMP itself). I'm running Filemaker 5.0V3 (unl) and web connector 5.0V6 under Win2kpro.
      Has anyone seen this before? Once any user gets this error, the web front-end is useless (for everyone) until I restart Filemaker. This is a major concern! Please Help
      Addition: It appears that whenevr this happens this appears in the web connector error log: [28/Dec/2000:15:58:28 -0500] HTTP session disconnected.
      Any ideas?
