A client wants our company to add a database for their homepage which is on their ISPs server (it's propably UNIX). I'm not talking about simply exporting the database to .html they basically want the database on that server in a similar matter as it would appear if it would be server with 'WebCompanion'. Does their ISP need to have some sort of special filemaker support? Or does the server have to be strickly a Macintosh or a Windows-PC? What do I need to be able to view/modify the database with my WebBrowser when the database is actually on a UNIX machine which isn't running filemaker. I have browsed through numerous websites and tech helps but haven't found the answer. Can this be done and how? Any replies will be highly appreciated!

If you client want to run a Filemaker database on thier ISP's systems, then those systems need to be able to run a copy of Filemaker. Call the ISP and ask if they have the capability to do this.

Although I would suggest using one of the web hosting companies which specifically support Filemaker. Use it as either the Filemaker specific service or as the hosting service for the entire web site.
