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.

      The company that I work for is interested in web enabling various databases. Our web servers are Netscape Enterprise Server 2.0 with NES 3.5.1 installed. The operating system on the server is Irix 6.4 (Unix).
      Does anyone if we can install and run Filemaker our current system or would we need to purchase a new server or operating system. I am not a server/operating system techie so any help would be greatly appreciate!

      Forgive me if this question's been asked.
      I administer a configuration that makes use of FileMaker Pro Server on one machine and FileMaker Pro Unlimited on another. The databases are all on the Server machine. All web interface files are on the Unlimited machine. This is on all on NT. I set up access for users to their web stuff so that they have control over changing that interface. The complaint I often get is that the "default" html file (usually default.htm) is left open and that they cannot replace the file with a new file. All other HTML/CDML files can be replaced. When you try to replace it, you get the message that another process has the file open. Shutting down related databases, etc. makes no change. I actually have to shut down FileMaker Pro Unlimited to cause the file to be released so that it can be replaced. Has anybody else had this problem and is there a way around this??

      OK,
      I've looked several places for this info and have been frustrated to no end. Can someone please tell me how to start and stop a database remotely (via the web) when using FMPro 5 Unlimited and the Web Companion!!!
