Web Publishing Engine (IWP) not working after error on fmswpc.exe


FileMaker Server


Operating system version

Windows Server 2008 R2

Description of the issue

FM Server and IWP worked perfectly for 4 months.

Since a couple of weeks we have been experiencing continuous and random crashes of web publishing engine (in our configuration only IWP is active, PHP,XML and XSLT are turned off).

In FM Server Admin Console, Web Publishing Engine box and Server Status Information string becomes red.

We have no plu-ins installed and we removed any commmand/script not compatible with Web Publishing that could cause the problem, but had no positive results.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Problem comes randomly, we were not able to reproduce it intentionally.

We observed that after a reboot of the virtual mavhine the proble takes longer time to occur. After the first time the frequency is higher.

Configuration information

The Windows 2008 R2 server is a clean virtual machine that hosts only filemaker service. IIS is on the same machine.

No updates were made when the problem started.

We host 6 files. 10 clients.


None, I have to manually restart web publishing.
