I have an Apache server and FileMaker Unlimited with Web Server Connector, and I would like to know if this is possible:

I would like to have a front page on the web server that is built up from several .html files using Server Side Includes and on that page I want to have a Recent News list with data from the FileMaker database.

I am not so sure about Apache talking to the FM via SSI.

FM WebCompanion itself is capable of SSI.

Sorry for the post in the other thread.

The purpose of Web Server Connector is to let Apache (or another web server)

Jeff,

the syntax is:

[FMP-Include]

What it does

[FMP-Include] is replaced with the contents of another file, usually an HTML format file.

Syntax

[FMP-Include: Filename ]

Parameter(s)

First parameter: Name of the file to include.

Syntax example(s)

Include a file using an HTML file

[FMP-If: CurrentError .eq. 509]

[FMP-Include: requirefield.htm]

[FMP-Else]

[FMP-Include: othererror.htm]

[/FMP-If]

This kinda strayed from the original question (my fault, but worth it 'cos i now have a new trick to play with tongue.gif" border="0 !)

If you have a webserver that understands the standard unix ssi commands and their extensions, you could embed the Filemaker data into the home page using a <webinclude> tag which calls a remote url into the page, but it must be a separate server - it won't work on the same host, even with two different ip addresses.

so a line in the default page could be:

<webinclude

url='http://myfilemakerserver.com/datafolder/FMPro?-&stuff-&stuff-&stuff'>

which could embed the Filemaker data and html

regards, Jeff

I tried doing a [FMP-Include: ] and it doesn't work.

The entire syntax I used is:

[FMP-Include: loginH.html]

Does this need to be part of the results page of a query? Can't I just use it by itself?

When I do this, I just get the tag displayed on the screen just as it is in the HTML.

I'm using FileMaker Pro 5.0v1
