Is FMWSC Broken in MacIntel - Tiger?

Recommended Posts

I have used FM 6 Unlimited's Web Server Connector (WSC) successfully on a G4 Xserve for a few years to put a database online in a dynamic web page.

I recently upgraded to an Intel Mac Xserve and found that I could not run WSC. When installed it breaks Apache and gives an error saying it cannot load the module.

Can someone confirm that WSC is broken on Intel Macs before I waste time trying to troubleshoot this?

Apache runs as an x86-native application whereas the WSC is a Power-PC app. x86 apps can't load PPC app modules. You'll find this true of the x86 version of FMP attempting to load PPC plug-ins where you need to run FMP under Rosetta to load the PPC plug-ins.

It sounds like Apache might be behaving in a similar manner. I don't know if/how you can run Apache as a PPC app under Rosetta to enable loading PPC modules.

      I have published my database using CDML pages and I want each web address field to act as a link witch goes directly to the address contained in the field. Example of the HTML code on the search results page:
      [FMP-FIELD: email] *how can I link this field to act as "mailto://(value in the field)"

      [FMP-FIELD:web-address] *how can I link this to act as "http://(value in the field)"
      Any help will be highly appreciated the dead line for these pages were yesterday and I need to get these features online as soon as possible. Thanks...

      Dear all:
      I am facing the following problem: I am setting up a www-interface using CDML for the first time. I get the behavior I want, and everything works fine.
      But there's one big question: In the CDML reference, I cannot find any tags that allow authentication of users using the FM-database built-in access privileges.
      Any ideas?
