Can you run Server and Unlimited on one physical machine?

We need to serve a number of databases to internal users plus some of them to the web. We currently have a variety of FM Pro 3.x & 4.x clients connecting to a FM Pro 4 machine (_not_ 4 Server) that has the databases shared out and the Web Companion enabled. But we need the multi-threading of FM Server and also want to upgrade to 5.

Do we now need two physical servers, or can we stick with just one?

The server in question is a B&W G3 with 256 MB of RAM, ample disk space, etc. so we're not as worried about the machine's ability to handle both but of both software products to be able to co-exist.

Filemaker is no different than any other database server, and should NEVER be run on a machine in conjunction to any other application.

For both performance and security reasons, put Unlimited on a seperate machine.

      Im just wondering if it is possible to keep text formatation on when listing out a field from filemaker on to the web.
      If I wanted to have sections with section headings that are in bold and the rest of the text not bolded, and also different size on the headings, can that be done, if so, what is the command for doing it?`
      listing out with ,break, html, raw etc didnt work.

      My boss wants to use Filemaker Pro to link faxed-in paper forms which are scanned in and converted to PDFs with additional information. The PDF needs to be linked via a reference # to additional information fields and e-mailed to an order processor.
      A customer should be able to login and view the forms with the additional information.
      Any ideas?

      Has anyone been able to get the Web Server Connector (On Apache & OSXS) to utilize the we security Database?
      My Passwds all work great if I connect directly to the Mac (OS 8.6) running FMP Unlimited, but when I try to use them through the Web Server Connector I keep getting errors about not being able to access format file xxxxx.html (from past experience I know this error usually means the pass authentication failed).

      I run FMPro unlimited AND FMPro Server on the same box and it just rocks.
      THERE ARE NO RULES except: do you get the performace you need?
      If yes then great!

      Has anyone noticed a decline in performance speed in relation to the number of databases running concurrently? Also, is there a suggested limit to the number of fields on one db (as far as performance is concerned)?
