Multiple instances of FMP Unlimited?

I work in higher ed., and Filemaker is very popular with faculty. Lately we've been hosting more and more FileMaker solutions on the web with Unlimited. Unfortunately, we're running up against the 50 file limit.

I'm wondering if it's possible to run multiple instances of Unlimited on the same (NT) machine. I have no problem shelling out for more licences, but I really don't want to buy another box, as the current one is mostly idle... although we have 50 files running, none of them are serving very high-traffic websites.

I'm envisioning running 2 or more instances of Unlimited on the same box, listening on different ports of course, and running Web Connector to make them look like they're all in the same place. Has anyone ever tried this? Or am I stuck purchasing another server if I want to keep building Filemaker solutions? I don't want to switch to MSSQL and ASP. smile.gif" border="0

I'd say download the 5.5 trial and give it a try...

It should work if 4 and 5 both did... you might sacrifice some performance, but it doesn't sound like that's much of an issue...

Post your results I'd like to hear how it turns out...

      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?

      I want to host 2 separate web sites from the same machine. I know I need FM Unlimited, but do I have to have 2 separate copies of FM Unlimited?

      Can we use FMU as a back end and have our users put the HTML on a Linux webserver running Apache?
