IWP - Just displays Apache greeting page

Recommended Posts

I installed the developer FMSA 9 (single machine) and have tried to run IWP.

During the install I specified the web server to be Apache (Mac OS X 10.4.10) at 127.0.0.1 using port 80 - everything fine. Although now I seem unable to change the port.

I also configured the sample file for fmiwp access.

When I try to connect from a browser client, specifying the IP address of the FMSA 9 machine all I get is the Apache welcome page.

I'm familiar with the FMP IWP which displays the list of files available, so I expected the same in FMSA 9.

Can anyone give me a clue.

Thanks

Hold everything!

I just read the help section. You must specify the following to access IWP

>/fmi/iwp

As for changing ports (OSX Client or Server), make sure to rerun the deployment wizard after you do to ensure FMS sees the change.

It's always been that way since Server 7.0v1.

Port changes are generally made in either Apache or IIS, not in FileMaker Server.

In FMS9 the deployment wizard needs to be ran again if the default port is changed in IIS or Apache (in this case).

I think you can actually change this from within the UAC; at least that was what was specified.

The UAC doesn't give you the option to specify the port at all.

You have always specified the port in the web server, as the web server is what actually hosts the web content.

Only in Pro can you specify the port for IWP. This is because pro is acting as the web server.
