You'll need FileMaker Server 10 or FileMaker Server Advanced to be able to take advantage of the PHP API for FileMaker. More info about it at FileMakers web site :http://www.filemaker.com/support/technologies/web.html
For your second question: where did you read about the Web Companion plugin, I think that technology died quite a few years back ( FileMaker 7?! )
Thank you for your response Heine. I appreciate it alot! Cleared out a couple of things for me.
I too am new to using filemaker. And am trying to use Filemaker's stanalone PHP API to access a Filemaker Pro 5.5 server. I also have tried to use FX.php, but I am unable to connect no matter what I try. Can 5.5 be accessed remotely via PHP? And if so does anyone have any suggestions? My client assures me that the web companion is turned on.
Can 5.5 be accessed remotely via PHP?
...does anyone have any suggestions?
You should upgrade to FMP 10 and FMP Server Advanced 10
Thank you PhilModJunk, I'll relay the information.
