What OS is your fmp server running on? Mac OS or Windows Server?
Mac OS: i dont know.
Windows Server with IIS:
you have a folder c://inetpub/wwwroot, this is the folder where the iis default page is located, and where filemaker server sees the root.
make a calculated field that interprets the media field as text field, it should look like this:
And now move your files so that they are located under c:/inetpub/wwwroot/geladenepics/587.jpg
The /Web that appears in the text based path is missing in the real, physical path. On Mac OS it should work a similar way.

as you said I put my pdf-files into a folder "manuals" inside of inetpub/wwwroot.
Then I link it and receive this in the text-calculation:
This path needs to be recalculated into this:
An open URL-Skript with this URL opens my PDF.
Many thanks Kapitän and don´t sail over the edge!
