    IWP Unstable (again) in 12.0v6 Error 701

      Summary

      IWP Unstable (again) in 12.0v6 Error 701

      Product

      FileMaker Server

      Version

      12.0v6

      Operating system version

      OSX 10.9 Server

      Description of the issue

      WP 701 error caused by portals with containers issue:

      I previously had this issue with Filemaker Server 12.0v5, so I trolled the forums and eventually found this hot fix: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12617/kw/instant%20web%20publishing%20crashes/session/L3RpbWUvMTM5MDg0MDYwOS9zaWQvcDlrOWNyTGw%3D
      Ok.  I understand hot fixes are a necessary evil in the development world, and after several hours of pain, I got the hot fix applied, and everything ran ok.
      I just migrated to a new server running Maverick and updated to 12.0v6, and the error has returned.  I find it utterly unthinkable that a development organization the size and scope of Filemaker would fail to incorporate a previous hot fix into the next release (12.6), so I am therefore concerned that the error has been reintroduced.  I am concerned abut trying to apply this hot fix again because I absolutely cannot believe that FileMaker would have failed to include it in the 12.0v6 release, and I am therefore concerned that I would break something or make matters worse.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Try keeping Filemaker IWP running for more than a couple of hours in a row if you use forms with portals with containers on any version post 12.0v3.

      Expected result

      A stable product

      Actual result

      embarrassment and headaches
