Right now No, FMP 5 Unlimited WSC will NOT install on OS X (10.0.x).

You will have to wait for FMP Unlimited 5.5, which is scheduled to be released this fall.

When that does come out I'm not sure if you'll be able to run all three components (Apache, WSC, FMP 5.5) on the same box.

But even if you can, you probably don't want to, unless you've got a very fast Mac and/or you expect very low web traffic.

Setting up a (at least one) machine for each task is ideal.

One box for Apache (with the web server connector - mod_fmwsc.so) and one for hosting the databases (FMP 5.5 Unlim).

** Actually to do it all on one machine you'll be better off just use the "Built-in" Web Sharing with FMP 5.5 Unlimited (just like in the FMP 5.5 Demo).

      Is there any limitation as to how many databases I can have opened at the same time (connected to the web)?

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

      perhaps a really stupid problem:
      FileMaker unlimited is online. Web companion is running ok. everything works over a browser.
      But now we want to directly open the database with another filemaker via TCP/IP from another place via web.
      By clicking "hosts" an putting the IP-Adress, no connection can be built.
      A Ping works correctly.
      Is there a solution :
      Thank U

      Anyone else have this happen to them? Running an NT 4 sp6a box (256 MB RAMM, dual Celeron 400s) with FMPro 5 Unlimited, Web Connector to IIS SSL, Web Companion, and every week or so the FMPro quits on me. The app. has 9999k cache and is set to save every hour or when necessary. Any guesses at the problem? Don't think it is hardware ...
