Don't see why not.
I haven't done exactly that, but the hardware requirements for FileMaker Pro are fairly modest.
You could always download a 30 day free trial copy to the machine and test it if you need to make sure before you spend any money on FileMaker.
Thanks for the reply.
We are currently running Filemaker Pro 11 in the office. We have one iMac that hosts the databases, which is fine, but we would like to throw all of that information on our server. Only issue now is finding documentation that shows a how-to in regards to setting it up.
What OS does that server run. Is it just OS 10.5 or 10.6?
If so, you just need to run the installer to install the software and then copy your files over to it to open them.
I'm currently running FMP11 on a mac mini on OSX 10.6 and I'm using instant web publishing to access it. it's working just fine for me, except apparently not all the scripts run through instant web publishing.
Any chance you have a walk through on how you set that up?
Have you tried this?
- Run a mac installer for FileMaker. (This can be a 30 day free trial install if your are testing things out.)
- Move your files to this machine.
- Open them with Filemaker Pro.
That's all there is to this.
