Description of the issue

I managed to get the Instant Web Sharing feature working on Tuesday by setting the port to 591, however after I restarted my computer and open up the reports for FileMaker Pro I get the message  "instant web sharing could not be started". I have searched forums and online for resolutions which have not worked including:
1) running a sudo command the restart the apache server
2) turning off and on web sharing
3) removing the preferences file

I would like to ask for advice on what else I can try to resolve this issue.

Steps to reproduce the problem

open up file maker pro or a report file associated with file maker pro. When accessing the setting for instant web sharing when clicking on it also gives the same message

Expected result

program to load up normally, and when accessing the setting if turning on to not give error

Actual result

error window with "instant web sharing could not be started".

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

"instant web sharing could not be started".
