Still get "Web Server Test Failed" after reinstall FMS Adv on OS 10.8


FileMaker Server


Operating system version


Description of the issue

Deployment Assistant alerts "Web Server Test Failed"; unable to communicate with the Web Server, using HTTP and port 80, with the domain name of the server filled in. Cannot enable Web Publishing.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Uninstalled 12.0.1 of FMS Adv on 10.8, deleted all found logs (one in root dir, deleted the FM folder in /Library. Repaired Disk Permissions. Reinstalled using brand new FMS Adv installer.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear


Check web server:Cannot contact web server
Update WPE deployment configuration: succeeded

[IP numbers are not the actuals]

Configuration information

I had installed FMS Adv 12.0.1 on 10.8 and got the same result, then saw that it was incompatible.

I notice on that while the Deployment assistant says it can enable PHP, the Admin Console says that PHP is disabled after I try and turn it on, not sure if this is a symptom or a problem.
