We are moving from Webstar and FMP on the Mac to IIS5 and FMP Unlimited on Win2k server.

Questions:

1) can we keep the db's anywhere on our HD or must we use the WEB folder in the FMP application folder?

2) do we also have to put ALL our websites in this WEB folder.

We host multiple websites and want a clear structure of folders that can be accessed by clients. Allowing them into the root WEB folder could create a serious security problem, since other clients' data is there too.

3) we also have ftp sites linket to by FMP, do these ftp sites have to be in the WEB folder too?

4) what is the web connector disk for that comes with FMP Unlimited?

On the Mac this was acceptable, but as business grows we have to change our directroy structure. So help is appreciated. For those who suggest I read the manual, I am using the Japanese version and reading the manual is a little bit too complicated for me to understand clearly the answers to the above questions.

Thanks in advance.

Anatoli: NEVER put databases into Web folder!!! That is the most unsecured place!

Anatoli: Yes, but you can restrict FTP access to each client folder e.g. webclient1 and webclient2.

3) we also have ftp sites linket to by FMP, do these ftp sites have to be in the WEB folder too?

4) what is the web connector disk for that comes with FMP Unlimited?

Anatoli: WC can connect your main server (IIS) to many (e.g. 5) machines with Unlimited. You can also put them behind Firewall.

Have fun!
