Multiple concurrent users thru web

Recommended Posts

I have a couple of databases running on FMP5 Unlimited, on Win NT4.0. FMP5 cache set to 9999.

I have several scripts written in FMP5 to email lists of people that are triggered from web events. These scripts take several minutes to complete. While one of these scripts is running, access to the other databases is halted until the scripts complete. Also, if i do a time intensive search on one database, access to the others seems to be suspended until the long search completes. Shouldn't FMP5 be capable of more than one web operation at one time? This is why I bought the unlimited package.

Scripts are not for web.

Do everything in calcolating fields.

If the script is running more than 0.5-1sec, you will experience your problems.

The WebCompanion is in fact single user as is it's engine.

If you need more power, use cluster of RAIC.

The Unlimited mean no limitation in number of IP connecting to FM

      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?
