Is there a way to Replicate a FileMaker Database?
Thanks for posting!
If you open your database in FileMaker Pro (locally), go to File > Save a Copy as. All of the layouts and data will be 'replicated' or copied.
Let me know if there is anything else I can clarify for you.
Thanks for the verys quick response.
What I am looking for is..
I have 2 FileMaker servers and I need a way of replicating in Real-time the actual Data. Basically as soon as a change is made on teh Production Server it is replicated to my backup server (Disaster Recovery Plan).
I see what you mean. Maybe you can do hour backup of the DB?. Let say if server 1 crash, you can use your server 2 with the db copy of the back up.
I've done this numerous ways in various solutions to meet the needs of various clients...
A. create a script to save a copy of the existing FMP file
B. create a script to archive modified records to another FMP file
C. create a script to export modified records to a text file[s]
D. create a 'history system' that tracks all changes to individual fields
The above functions can be initiated by the user 'clicking a button' or, scripted to automatically happen when a user modifies the contents of any field. Additionally, the resulting 'replicated data' can be saved to the local HD, saved to a remote HD, or sent via e-mail to another user.
These are but a few ideas... I hope this helps!!!
