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

      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!!!
