Session screwy in IWP

I may have posted in the past on this but I cannot seem to get any feedback or resolution!? Is anyone having problems with IWP's automatically created session becoming confused? For example, upon entering the IWP site, accidentally going to another user's layout's or not "sticking" within the current session? It is also happening periodically during normal routines within the IWP site, not just upon entering. ANY FEEDBACK MUCH APPRECIATED!

Your sure all your scripts use web compatible script steps?

Are you using FM or FMSA to host to IWP?

Tried backing up the file then... -->

a) compressing --> try host again

;) recovering --> try host again

...?

My site is hosted at Point in Space on OSX Server/ machines I believe and using FMSA8. Interestingly enough, when I used Dreamweaver to ftp my db back and forth, the file was unrecognizable locally on my machine as a FMP file. The only way to open the file was by dropping it onto the FM icon. I finally wound up compressing the file and perhaps ran the Advanced tools as well which made the file recognizable as a FM file again. But of course the session problems are occuring after all that. Is there something specific you are aware of that might have happened that you suggested what you did? Thanks A LOT for the feedback!

Not really, i was just trying to get more specific information out of you so that someone else could help you out, i don't do a lot with IWP so can't help you out much. The above mentioned were just general suggestions to try and workout if you file was corrupted.

Try hosting a different file and see if you get the same results. If you do, re-install server and see if that helps, installing all updates as well.

It's definitely not the server installation. We've received similar reports from one or two other clients on different servers here as well. Seems like it may be related to Guest access. One possible solution is to perform a commit record step before the exit application step - but that's not verified at all.

did the commit step before exiting the app as part of my logout script. It seems to have worked to prevent guest users of the IWP site from entering the site on the wrong l/o or session. However it didn't prevent the session from mixing up with someone else's while performing various requests within the site.

I did submit an online notification to FMI about this issue 2 months ago, but as typical in my experience of submitting "bug" reports, it probably was auto forwarded to [email protected]

      Our company still uses FMP 11 Advanced because hosting online via IWP is much, much cheaper than hosting with a modern version of FMP.  Currently, we pay double to have two different FMP 11 databases hosted online.  One database contains 900 records and is open to the public with no password, and the other has several thousand records and requires a password.  
      In hopes of cutting our hosting cost in half, I would like to combine the two databases into one database, such that we need only pay to host 1 database.  But our need to password protect certain records remains.  
      In other words, I want to put the content that doesn't require a password inside the FMP database file that has data we want to protect.  I know it's possible to combine the two databases, but that would mean we can no longer use a main password to lockout the entire file, as that would lock out everybody.  I would like to know if I can use FMP 11 Advanced to password protect only certain records within a single database file?
      Thanks.

      Hi I can not fiddle out how to make it work. I have tried several browsers with same result. We are using FM 12 server. I tried this file paths
      file:///C:/file.jpg
      C:/file.jpg
      file://localhost/C:/file.jpg
      and few others
       
      I'm using this code in the Web Viewer which is working fine in FM client but not in browser
      "data:text/html, <html> <head> <style type=text/css> " & table::style & " </style> </head> <body> <div class='thumb'> <span class='helper'></span><img class='thumb' src='" & table::ThumbnailPath & "'> </div> </body> </html>"  
      If it's caused by fact image is not present in web site folder as stated in document then my question is if it possible use unc network path in filename like file://///other_than_fmserver/networkpath/file.jpg. I wasn't successful either. 
      Any help appreciated

      Good morning! I need some help getting something working.
       
      We have a company website, and we are trying to create a instant web publishing portal for our customers to login and view their open invoices. Pretty simple. We have all of our information on a FileMaker solution that is hosted with FileMaker Server 12. The problem is we can't get it to work the way we want it to. 
       
      This is our idea and how we kind of want it to work. We want the have our customers create their accounts/passwords on our actual website. We will store their account information on our web server. We will authenticate their login on our web server. Then, after they log into our website, we want to take their username, bypass the filemaker instant web publishing login page, and then set their username (which they used to log into our website, not filemaker) to a global variable or a field or something, we just need it in filemaker so we can do searches on it. We have the instant web publishing layouts built and we can get all that part working fine, we have the login authentication working on our site, that part is fine. It's just bridging the two together. 
      We are using WordPress to build the website, and our site is hosted on GoDaddy. Our problem is that we can't find a way to auto-login and bypass the login web publishing page. We currently have one account called "WebLogin" which we have been trying to use as a general login (since the actual customer login is authenticated on our website, not FileMaker) but we can't seem to bypass the page. I found this page through google searching: http://lnx.acidsoft.net/problemsolved/bypass-filemaker-iwp-login-via-url.html
      and tried to do it the way that he describes, but it is not working. It gives me an error saying:
      Bad Request
      The server could not process your request due to a missing command: ""
       
      And I get another dialog box that says: 
      Bad Request
      The server could not process your request because your session has timed out, been closed, or communication with the server has been lost.
      Please reselect the database to begin a new session. If you cannot open the database, please contact your database administrator.
       
      That is one of the problems, how can I resolve this?
       
      My other problems is we are trying to pass through the username that the customer uses to login to our website as a variable in filemaker or even set it to a field. I am not sure how to do this. Is this even possible?
      Thank you so much!

      I have an application that was using IWP under FM Server 12, to allow my friends and friends of friends to upload their golf scores, and my system would calculate their USGA handicaps.
       
      After upgrading to FM Server 13, IWP not longer exists, and WebDirect does not support mobile devices.
       
      So, I set up an alternative server using FM12.
       
      A lot of guys that I don't have contact details for, used that IWP based system to upload golf scores. So I don't have a way to tell them all the new URL.
       
      Using the old IWP URL, you are presented with a screen that says "The requested page is not found. Check the URL you are using to access FileMaker WebDirect."
       
      I want to edit that page to add some additional information telling them the new URL etc. But I can't find any document with that content in any FM Server folder or sub folder. 
       
      Anyone know where I can find it ?
       
      thanks

      Hi, I have a databse hosted in IWP that uses Supercontainer for people to upload documents. The process works fine when I use FMPA 12 to access the hosted database, but when I go through the web browser (the IWP approach), the process does not work. A button "Upload Doc" calls a script that goes to the upload layout, generates the SC id code for the record, shows the webviewer with upload and delete buttons. This works fine when I am using FMP to access the database, but this does not work when I use IWP. When I click the button in IWP, nothing happens. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance!
