I have been using Filemaker since ver3 but only for my own use, at work and at home, but only for my needs. Currently I've created a couple apps that I would like to share with my coworkers when they are out in the field so I bought a little server and am trying to download filemaker server 16 onto it. I bought it specifically with windows 7 pro because I had read that was a good os for it but after trying to install and it not working, I see now I should have purchased windows server.
Can I get some help as to what I actually need. I would like to run my apps through web browser or fmp go and I would like to not spend a lot. I would appreciate any advice.
Thank you. Also, please note that although I'm not completely new to fmp or computers, I am not strong at anything beyond a personal use level, so if you would, please keep your assistance to vocabulary that will make sense to me.

This has long been an issue, I have no idea why it happens and it is making life quite difficult
Win Server 2012 FMS 16 (current but this happens on other configurations)
With ScriptMaster installed
run a script which resets the server ( SMReset) and then loads jars and functions return to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box
run another script on the server which just returns to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box
dialog 1 SHOWS the modules you installed
dialog 2 is EMPTY
fmsadmin restart fmse
do the above again, same result
this means you can not do a test on the server to see if a particular function is loaded before you want to use it.... in fact there is no test you can do to see if the ScriptMaster has fallen over as far as I can tell.
I've been using CloudMail for a couple of years now to send marketing campaigns for my company. Just recently I have moved to remote hosting with AWS and now my server is offsite I have noticed some performance issues with cloudmail and a few other areas of my solution.
To address these issues I have started using server-side scripts to perform labour intensive tasks such as creating bulk records (20,000) at one time. This has resulted in excellent performance once again.
The problem I can't seem to fix is sending my email campaigns using server-side scripts. I have confirmed the plugin is installed etc on the server and with quite a bit of trial and error, I am still unable to send the campaigns.
Does anyone have a sample script they use, or any advise how I can get this working?
I appreciate any help and thanks in advance
I have three backup schedules: hourly, daily and weekly.
To reduce any lag experienced by end users during the day I am wondering if I should do away with the verification step for the hourly one, which would speed up the backup.
I would keep it on the other two and would be emailed by FMS if there were an issue.
But if there were a crash and I wanted to restore from the hourly one, how do I know the data integrity is OK?
Obviously if there were an issue I would use the older daily one, but that is a risk I'd be willing to take if it sped things up.
