Cannot deploy WebD

Your post


I'm trying to deploy WebD on a Windows server 2012 with an existing FileMaker Server install. This is a single-server setup, as WebD will only have light usage.

I used the normal admin console tools to modify the server deployment, but the deployment fails as it can't contact the test_xml file on

The reason is obvious — the physical path where I'd expect to find the WebD web share (C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\HTTPServer\conf) is empty.

I tried stopping the filemaker service and running a repair install of FM server, which completed without errors or complaints. However, the folder is still empty. 

How can I force the redeployment of the WebD files? Do I need to adjust anything on IIS first (at the moment there's just the Default Web Site running, but no apps or services are using it, just the default 'welcome to IIS page')

Am I going to have to do a clean install of FM server? :(
