I installed from downloaded image v14.0.4 and then patched to 14.0.4a.

When I go to http://localhost:16001 - nothing happens. It just sits on the screen saying that "Admin Console is starting...".  I've not been able to deploy or setup anything yet.

During install, it is setup to use alternate ports, namely 8080 and 8081 (http, ssl) respectively.

When I go to the Console logs, I see this error repeated: XPC_ERROR_CONNECTION_INTERRUPTED trying to map database

No clue how to proceed, anyone else got a suggestion?

THANKS ahead!

I have the Apple Server software installed on the same machine as FM Server, but have not upgraded from 10.10 to 10.11. If I upgrade, would I just need to turn off all services in the Apple Server or would I need to completely remove the software?

I'm currently running FMServer 13 and would like to upgrade to 14.

tThanks

For your switch from FMS 13 to FMS 14 you should definitely you use the uninstaller for FMS 13, then do an install for FMS 14. As part of this procedure the correct Java version for will be installed (could be part of the problem). However, I would recommend to follow FileMaker's own recommendation and posts above: do a clean install of OS X first with NO SERVER. Current OS X Servers are no longer compatible with current FMS.

FMS14 and OS X 11 Server are not officially supported, but many folks are using them together, as noted here by a FileMaker Inc. rep. see https://community.filemaker.com/thread/84470?start=0&tstart=0

 

I have no experience with El Capitan, but am having good results with FMS 14 and OS X 10.10 with OS X Server installed.

Not sure why several posters here state the contrary, but FMS14 and OSX 11 is indeed an officially supported combination. If memory serves me right it has been that way for some time.

Also I assume the problem had already been solved by 2b3pro and I can't be sure, but those ports, especially 8080 could've been in use by the Server.app's internal proxy process. FMS setup usually warns about those but it's possible that they were closed during the setup process and got opened again after a reboot.

You mean Server v4 and Server v5 probably? I'm not sure if Server v4 was allowed to run on 10.11, I'm sure you could run Server v5 on 10.10 though... which makes the statement "OS X 11 Server" even less meaningful. Anyhow, where are the links/statements from FileMaker that prove said incompatibility? They always seemed to mention only the OS version number and I can't remember ever seeing them mentioning Server.app version requirements for FM server (before that they said you shouldn't have Server.app and FMS running on the same machine regardless of the version and later it was just compatible).
