Hi Everyone :

Good News for Windows users that want to use FileMaker Server Advanced, Apache and Windows.

While developing our new product "BlackBelt"

http://fmwebschool.com/frm/index.php?topic=836.0 (allows you to run CDML on FileMaker 7-8.5) we needed to test in multiple server environments. We discovered by simply adding a line of code to the Apache httpd file and a couple lines of code to a couple other files we were able to run FMSA on Apache.

Up until now, only IIS was the supported server to run the FileMaker Server Advanced Web Publishing Engine. However, Apache is a very popular web server for both Windows and Mac platforms and includes a lot of very interesting modules such as mod_rewrite - which are great to use with many sites to make search engine friendly URLs. Previously using Apache and FileMaker on Windows required running IIS for the web publishing engine and Apache as a separate process - with the help of this tutorial, you can eliminate IIS from your system and use only Apache!
