Can PHP web app run on separate box than FileMaker server?

Your post

Folks,

 

I'm looking at developing a PHP interface for exporting some data from a FileMaker 9 server database. The FM server admin and I have not done this before and I'm trying to figure out if I can actually house the PHP app on a different server as long as I copy the necessary FM API PHP files over to the other server (i.e. FileMaker.php). From looking at the tutorial that comes with the server, it suggests creating a dbaccess.php file, including the FM file creating an object instance and setting the database name and appropriate authentication. The database name reference appears not to include any server host naming. Can "$fm->setProperty('database', 'your_db_goes_here')" use something like fmnet:/server.domain.host/your_db_goes_here for the database reference?

 

Thanks in advance,

Jack
