How does FX.php work?

FX.php is a free Open Source way of putting FileMaker's data on the web using the XML output from FileMaker's web companion. FX.php was developed by Chris Hansen of iviking.org.

What is the easiest way to develop a custom FX.php site like the one you created?

The easiest way is to you FXForge. http://www.fxforge.net

You will need to use FileMaker Server Advanced to custom publish to the web with FileMaker 7. We do have a product available at www.cafephp.com that allows you to publish custom sites to the web using the client version of FileMaker Pro. We adhere to FileMaker's licensing by only allowing 5 connections to FileMaker at a time. The new version of CAFEphp to be released this week works with FileMaker 5-7.
