Grief moving to server

Recommended Posts

My problem may be more about a server than about CDML but...

My custom webpages using CDML and FMKR 6 are working when I use my own machine as a local host.

In the process of moving the databases and html pages to an Apache webserver on a Mac, the coding is not, for lack of a better term, 'finding' the database. The databases are loaded in the web folder in the FMK apps folder and are open.

What's not making sense to me is why it will work using my local IP address, but when I move it to another environment with the same set-up, its not. Instant web-publishing is enabled...when I used the default homepage available through IWP, the databases are available.

A sample URL is: http://www.chilcotin.bc.ca:591/prodlist.htm

Hi, Monica! So to take this one step further, I think IWP still lets you choose a custom home page, so if you want to create a custom index.html page, you can use an auto-redirect to the URL that Garry gave you so your web visitors just have to go to http://www.chilcotin.bc.ca:591, see a brief splash/redirect page (you can have it blank or a logo or whatever), and then see your FMP site stuff. The number "1" after CONTENT is approximately how many seconds to wait before transferring the visitor to the new URL.



<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="1; URL=http://www.chilcotin.bc.ca:591/FMPro?-db=cecomproducts.fp5&-format=prodlist.htm&-view">

<TITLE>Name of your page</TITLE>




(oops.. posted my page title here so had to clean it)!
