I have never created a database before so I am having trouble creating it.
One more question I have is, how can I create or connect a client in the Filemaker Server?
Thank you for your posts.
FileMaker Server cannot create database files; only FileMaker Pro/Advanced can create database files. FileMaker Server only hosts FileMaker Pro files. Users of FileMaker Pro can then access the files via "Open Remote".
Before placing the file in FileMaker Server, open the file in FileMaker Pro, pull down the File menu and select Sharing -> FileMaker Network. Turn on Network Sharing, select the file, and set Network access to the file for All users. Close the file, and copy the file into the Databases folder of FileMaker Server.
Launch the Admin Console for FileMaker Server, click the Databases tab, seelect the file and open it.
All of this is covered in the Getting Started Guide that came with FileMaker Server, or you can also review it online at:
