The issue i'm having is that when i go to my address i get the following


I'm wanting to access the server and make the changes to the database but unsure how to. I've tried looking into the user guides and haven't really found it helpful. There might be a bug or something if someone could help me out.

So, which changes are you talking about ?

- do you want to change setting for the server ?

- Do you want to develop the database file and create layouts and script ?

- Do you want to enter data into an existing database file via a webbrowser ?


Really that is the question.

If you are not sure what to do, you might have started too early with the server... and in such case, I would recommend that you go to FileMaker's website and learn more about FileMaker.

In Manage Security section of the file, locate the Privilege Set for the Account used to open the file.  In the Extended Privileges section, click the WebDirect option.

      I currently administer a Filemaker 16 Server and only use Oracle Java for the admin console (web publishing is turned off). We want to get rid of Java rather than start paying for it. Rather than upgrade to FMS18, is it possible to use OpenJDK instead of Java for the FMS16 admin console? If so, is there anyone that can provide some guidance on how to do that?

      So, the time has come. Runtime support is gone in 19.
      This puts me in a quandary. At my company, I have a handful of small apps that do nothing but import CSVs and print labels with barcodes on Zebra label printers, or packing slips with pictures for each item. These are one-off special purpose databases. There is no active data management. The scripts clear out the DB and import a fresh CSV on each run.
      I have tried making these applications work with Server, to no avail. I doubt anything has changed in 19.
      I can understand Claris wanting to move to an online subscription-based model, but the problem is that the server version is not at feature parity with the desktop client for certain essential things I need, like printing to a label printer, or exporting PDFs with images that come from a folder full of PNG files that change on each run.
      I have some time, obviously, but version 18 will not run forever, especially if Apple's shenanigans continue. Is Claris listening, or should I just assume that this is a lost cause?

      After upgrading to FM Server 16, I am seeing that the automatic daily script executed from the server side is no longer doing so without error. The script sends email reminders to workshop presenters scheduled within 4 days. The error code, which I record in a log, is 119. However, that code isn't listed among the error codes listed in the online help:
      Knowing the meaning of the error may provide useful information that will help me reconfigure the email account settings for the command Send Via SMTP Server.

      Mr. Ignoramus
      We have a solution in Canada where we moved the db from a hosting company to a LAN ( customers building ) They are using a Mac OS machine running FileMaker 16 server.
      We access the FM 16 server via apple's remote access, having trouble locating where we would put the index.html and php files for our web form that we used when we were hosting on an outside hosting company.  The hosting company put the html/php file in the folder that designated our account number. 
      My question is this ... where would we put the two web files; index.html (form) and the .php (create record in FM) file on the FM 16 server.  I can not seem to locate the instruction via the documentation FM is providing.  Have done several internet search ...
      I am gathering information to pass to the individual helping us with the FM server at location.
      Anybody able to provide a link or guidance I would be grateful.
      Thank you.

      We recently upgraded from FMS 14 to FMS16 and one of our databases won't open via WebDirect due to the way it's named:  the database title has an ampersand ("&") in it.  This worked just fine for FMS14, but not for FMS16.  The easiest solution seems to be to change the database title.  I'm a little hesitant to jump into this because of a large number of externally held containers.  How would one safely go about changing the database name (I'd like to change the "&" to "and") without losing the linked containers? 
      In case anyone's wondering, I didn't name the database; I inherited it.
