Hi everyone,

I am new here. I just began working with a project that has been using FileMaker Server 9 and Pro 9. The current architecture uses one machine deployment but the machine is quite ancient and doesn't support any micro-frameworks that eases my web development duties.

I wanted to split this architecture to a multi machine deployment this ancient machine having only the Database, another better machine having a webserver and/or a web publishing engine. The reasoning behind this being that I can use a webserver(Gunicorn + Flask) and use PyFileMaker to obtain my data from the DB using XML.

I, however, realize that the web publishing engine is required at the database to publish my XML data which in turn requires a web server running(apache). This goes back to the same one machine deployment.
Am I missing a point here?

Thank you so much for taking your time to read this. It would be truly awesome if you could help me with this question.
Thank you once again and have a good day.

Regards,
Arjun

What OS?

In a 2-machine deployment you can have the web server and Web Publishing Engine on one machine and the database server on another.  The WPE does not have to be on the same machine as the databases.

      Our lead developer Milan made his dream come true and built a pond controlled by FileMaker and Raspberry Pi.

      The pond contains about 35 cubic meters of water (about 9246 gallons) and it’s 2 meters (6.5 feet) deep in its deepest point. It is equipped with both mechanical and pressurized filter, UV light, pumps for filtration and waterfall, and an air pump. There are water plants, fish, and other water animals living in the pond. To keep the pond in good conditions, Milan has automated control of its environment with the help of Claris FileMaker and Raspberry Pi…

      I have been going through the web to look for examples and I have not been successful. 
      Even when looking in Lynda.com.
       
      Over the years, I have been using plist files and now wants to change to xml. I am looking for example on how to export and import data in xml format with filmakers pro . Does anyone have an idea where I could find some information?
      The idea is to create a script which would import a xml file located on a SDHC card. A script is being used to format SDHC cards and at the same time the NX5UCarteNo field will be updated to identify the card with a number from 01 to 10. The information is the being exported as an XML file onto the SDHC card.
      The next time the SDHC card is mounted the script would then import it's content in the NX5U table. The xml file is to identify which SDHC card is being mounted. This would be done with the information saved under the NX5UCarteNo field.
      Thanks for your help!
      With regards!

      Over a year ago, I started an ambitious project; to develop a FileMaker solution where everything happens on a single screen. It has been much more work than I had anticipated but 8 projects later, it has been defined and refined to the poiint where it is now bulletproof and will work for any solution for any industry.
      On January 3, 2020 I will be releasing NautilusFM to the community under an open source (BSD) license so that anybody and everybody can benefit and learn from it. The release includes a comprehensive ebook with step-by-step instructions and an example file to illustrate all of the techniques and methodologies used; that example file could easily be used as a basis for projects and contains the basis functionality required for every business
      NautilusFM is a framework, a methodology for development.  To read the background story
