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.

      Hello all:
      Sorry if this has been discussed before, but I haven't found an answer to the problem so far. Here it is:
      I have a db created in FMP 5, and its shared as Entry Only in the Web Companion. In IE 5 and 4 on Mac and Win, the Entry Only layout works. On Netscape (Mac, Win I haven't tried yet) I get a short attempt to build the Entry Only layout, wich terminates prematurely, and then builds a List View layout, which allows full manipulation of the data. This is exactly what I don't want!! I need a 'data drop box' without further access to data for web users. The described problem occurs when connecting to FMPro Unlimited directly, or when connecting via FMWSC on OSXS.
      Any hints would be highly appreciated!
      Cheers, and look out for OSX! It's sleek and fast!

      Dear all:
      I would like to use the custom web publishing features of FM Pro Unlimited, using CDML. However, I am unable to find a reference of CDML Tags on the FM site (I always get errors when trying to search the tech info knowledge base). Could anyone refer me to a source?
      Also, does anyone know of a good CDML-tutorial? I don't seem to be able to find anything of that sort as part of the FM Pro Unlimited electronic documentation.
      Any help would be highly appreciated

      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?

      Has anyone tried the connector on Windows 2000 and had some success with it? The company I work for just got FMPro5 Unlimited, but we mostly a Win2K shop; including the intranet server... How do I make it work?
