I am using FM pro 5.5. for multiable databases. Some of which my company needs to access for different cities. I setup web companion as well as the webport, the plug in that comes with FM unlimited. This was originally setup using FM 5.0 and at time, it was very slow but it worked. Now you can still access the databases form the web but none of the changes are saving that are made from the Web.

Has anyone got an idea why this may be happening?

Also is their a better/faster way I can host files so my users in San Francisco and Minneapolis and access them?

Some one said that I could have my FM pro files hosted outside, and if so does anyone know where?

Any help would be great,

The file is hosted with filemaker Server on mac OS 9.0

The web companion file is hosted to the web on a system mac os 9.1

The operating system has not changed only the software form 5.0 to 5.5.

We offer hosting for Filemaker 4.x and 5.0, CDML and Lasso.

However, no Filemaker hosting provider can currently host 5.5 files, as 5.5 Unlimited has yet to be released. Technically, it could be done with a regular 5.5 (though you'd be breaking the license agreement), but even then there's problems with the Web Companion in 5.5 communicating with Lasso. There may be additional problems in the 5.5 Web Companion in general, or you may be hitting the 10 IPs in 12 hours limit of it.

That said, you can still host your 5.5 files on a 5.0 hosting provider that's running Filemaker 5.0 Unlimited - you just won't be able to use the features new in 5.5 with it. And you can still host that same database when 5.5 Unlimited comes out without any changes, as the 5.0/5.5 file formats are cross-compatible.

Mac 9.1 has lot of problems.

We also asked:

Are you using Instant Web Publishing?

And what kind of Internet connection do you have?

Are you using Instant Web Publishing? WEB port using WEB campaion.

And what kind of Internet connection do you have? DSL

Back to my orignal point : I have been running this with FP 5.0 with no problems on the same operating system OS 9.1 andvit worked fine. It was only until I up graded to FM 5.5 did I have any problems.

Could someone PLEASE answer one of my Orignal questions. Does anyone know if their is a FM pro Hosting service for our files?

Thank you,
