Hi Everyone

Im using filemaker server 8 and for some reason one of the database's i've created wont open. Its status is now closed, i select 'OPEN' the status then becomes 'CHECKING' for about 5secs and then reverts back to closed again.

Any idea's?

Thanks

Don't know about permissions problems in windows, but you might check the event.log file in the FileMaker Server application or log folder. It might have an explaination about why the file doesn't open. Could be a corrupted file.

i recovered the file in pro 8 and it recovered successfully, still cant get server to keep the database file open. Is their anything else i had to do after recovering the file. The fm server and fm pro 8 are on 2 different computers but are networked, this wouldnt be causing any issue would it?

I also found the application error in the event viewer

Database "xxxxx" could not be opened. Database may be damaged; use the Recover command in FileMaker Pro 8.

anything?
