I have my databases configured the way I want them in filemaker pro, but when I copy them into the data directory on the FileMaker server (v8) they don't show up in the list when clients try to access the server. I have tried stopping and restarting the service. What is the correct way to move a database from my workstation to the server?

Can you futher explain your posted explanation? To clarify the issue:

The filemaker file keeps reading "closed" when I try to host it using Filemaker Server. At one point, I changed the name of the file and it did finally list as "open," but still wouldn't show up when clients tried to access it on the server.

What Steven is saying is to open the file back in FM Pro (or Advanced) then save a copy as compacted/compressed. Make sure the new copy has sharing turned on. Then put it back on the server and try to open it for hosting.
