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.

 

I've got the web publishing on and the server turned on.

 

Also when i add /fmi/iwp/ to the end i get the folowing

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.

      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.

      Hello,
      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.

      I have always developed with FileMaker for windows. I have bought myself a MacBook Air and love it. So now I am using FileMaker 16 Pro advance for MAC. I know that MAC does not label their directories like windows does. So I am having problems figuring out to get the right coding to access my photos. I have a folder called "Photos" that reside on the C: drive in windows. Then I reference that folder so pictures will populate automatically when I put in a record. Here is what I have on the windows fileMaker:
      ImagePath:
      Let ( [ // Transform the contents of a container field named Images to text ImageRef = GetAsText ( ImagePath); Photos = Position ( ImageRef; "/"; 1; PatternCount ( ImageRef; "/")) ]; Middle ( ImageRef; Photos + 1; Length ( ImageRef ) - Photos ) ) images:
      "imagewin:/C:/Photos/" & Film::title & ".jpg" Then I go into Import folder and point to the folder all the photos are in. The problem I have now is how to point to that folder in "imagewin", is their an alternative called imagemac, then I could put in Macintosh HD/Users/patricks/Documents.  The folder is in the Document folder, called Photos. Thank you for any help.

      Hi, I have fm 14 server running on a mac mini. I have recently upgraded to FM16 running Mojave on 2 x local macs. We started with one license, where only one of us could use FM at a time (as we knew), I have since bought another copy and and reinstalled FM16 on the local mac with the new serial number but the server still seems to think we are using the same copy?? and we are getting the attached error. I have completely uninstalled FM locally but still does not work. I have asked my FM guy, as well as 2 or 3 other people but everyone seems to be stumped?? Is there any way of clearer the cache which may be holding this old information? Any help would be much appreciated.

      Dear all,
      I'm new here so forgive me if not posted in the correct location. We have the following situation for which we do not know how to continue:
      We have Filemaker server running on a windows server. The server is accessed through its local ip address (in the 10.10.10.x block). For an internal application I would like to extract information from a FileMaker database for usage in another application. Initially, I used the xmlresultset grammar. It works for when requesting the databases hosted on the server (i.e. : http//10.10.10.x/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-dbnames returns the expected result). However, when I attempt to retrieve a list of layouts that are available I keep getting an empty body result:
      http://10.10.10.x/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-db=Test&-layoutnames Returns the following contents (Note the content-length = 0):
      [Chrome section: General] Request URL: http://10.10.10.x/fmi/xml/fmresultset.xml?-db=Test&-layoutnames Request Method: GET Status Code: 200 OK Remote Address: 10.10.10.x:80 Referrer Policy: no-referrer-when-downgrade [Chrome section: Response header] Content-Length: 0 Content-Type: text/xml;charset=UTF-8 Date: Mon, 19 Nov 2018 16:01:06 GMT Server: Microsoft-IIS/10.0 X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN X-Powered-By: ARR/3.0 X-XSS-Protection: 1; mode=block [Chrome section: Request headers] Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,image/apng,*/*;q=0.8 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.9,nl;q=0.8 Authorization: Basic XXXXXXXXXXXXX Cache-Control: max-age=0 Connection: keep-alive Cookie: JSESSIONID=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.jwpc1 DNT: 1 Host: 10.10.10.x Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1 User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/70.0.3538.77 Safari/537.36 I specifically made a layout that should return content as a table view of the records.
      I have verified with PHP, and it shows the same problem.
      I have read on some forum that layouts should be made available through web-publishing as well. How to do this? I cannot find it in the documentation.
      What else am I missing?
      Hoping for an answer!
