No database available - LAN


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Win7 Ultimate 64-bit

Description of the issue

My undertsanding is that a shared database should at least appear in a browser belonging to the same computer, at the address http://localhost/, regardless of the network status.

For some reason, my databases (which used to be available on the Internet) do not appear anymore. Just to be on the sure side, i created a  database with a random name (to avoid possible namefiles conflicts), but still no database available at the localhost.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1) Uninstall and reinstall FileMaker: no effect
2) Turn off the Windows firewall: no effect
3) Double-check the web publishing options: they are correct
4) Created a brand new database with a unique name: no effect

Expected result

The database should at least be avauilable at localhost

Actual result

No database available
