Filemaker on a linux sever?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have filemaker functionality on a linux based server? My current hosting provider is linux based and I would like to add a filemaker database to my page. If anyone has any knowledge of this process (if possible) I would appreciate it.

Thanks for your time,

Talk you soon

Well since Filemaker is a Windows and MacOS application, you will need to run it on either a Windows or a MacOS machine.

Thoughtfully Filemaker included web serving capabilities in thier Web Companion plugin. So as long as you have a machine with a static IP address and the Win/MacOS operating system you can host your databases to the web.

Just set everything up on your machine and you are good to go.

Are you talking about the server side as having a static IP and being Win/Mac OS, or the browser side.

Sorry I am new to this web database implementation.

The server side is all that needs the static IP address on a Mac or Windows platform. The client accesses via some kind of web browser, platform is irrelevant.

I did not hear about FM Unlimited and WebCompanion for Linux yet. Maybe it will never exist.

Server yes, that is announced.
