Can we use FMU for a back end?

Recommended Posts

Not with the FMP Web Companion, the HTML (CDML) pages need to be on the same machine as FMP. You could, however, use another front end via ODBC on the other machine.

Well this is not entirely true.

You can just put the few CDML tagged pages on the FMP Unlimited server and all of you other pages on the Apache machine. There are only like a dozen or so pages, many of which are simply error result pages, necessary.

You could also use XML results from the Web Companion and send those to pages anywhere.

Not on Linux/Apache, but through Web Connector you can do it on Mac OS X (you know, the UNIX Mac) and Apache. You can use RAIC with 3-4 machines supplying the data to the MacOsX Apache serving web on port 80.

      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?
      Cheers,
      Ron
