Web Connector

Recommended Posts

After some time (seems time is random) Filemaker will generate an error of "Database Not Open" when users try to connect to the web front-end I have created (when, in fact, when I look at the console, FMP is maximized and running-all DBs ARE open, I can perform things on the open DBs from within FMP itself). I'm running Filemaker 5.0V3 (unl) and web connector 5.0V6 under Win2kpro.

Has anyone seen this before? Once any user gets this error, the web front-end is useless (for everyone) until I restart Filemaker. This is a major concern! Please Help smile.gif

Addition: It appears that whenevr this happens this appears in the web connector error log: [28/Dec/2000:15:58:28 -0500] HTTP session disconnected.

Any ideas?

I ran into this same problem.

Are you trying to connect to the FM DB throug ODBC? If so you will need to change your ODBC DNS such that 0 (zero) file will remain open. I have not found anyway to use this "feature" correctly. No matter what I do when I try to connect to FM DB through ODBC and I have the Files Open > 0 then I get a notice that it could not open the FM DB.

I've had similar experiences and was able to trace them to opeing and closing scripts that users were initiating when hosting on, and the databases were then reopened with different access privileges (thus disallowing no password access for web viewers). We modified the scripts and the problem went away.

      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?
