Title

A thing to sort out on FM Server trial before I purchase

Your post

Situation:

Filemaker Server v11 (trial) installed on dedicated Mac 10.5.8

Filemaker Pro client 11 (purchased single license) installed on another Mac 10.6.6

I succesfully converted 7 related .fp5 database from FM6 to FM11 (lucky I am). I am also able to share all databases with FM Server over my local network and log in to them from a FMP client. So far so good.

Q: I want to share my (relational) databases with instant webpublishing, to give access by a webbrowser. I read Getting Started PDF, so with FMP client v11 I open one of the database from my local harddisk and try to turn on IWP, but as soon as I click on the "On" radiobutton I get a beachball and after a while this message: "Filemaker cannot share files over the web because instant web publishing could not be started."

What now?

Or is there no need to start IWP per each database, since I use the FM Server?

Kind regards, Bert.
