TD Miguens:Thank you for the post.Some questions to assist us with narrowing this down:1. What is the operating system of the host computer?2. After the upload, are you able to see the file in the Activity section of the FileMaker Server 13 Admin Console?3. Does using File > Open Remote show the server as a localhost and does the FMServer_Sample.fmp12 file show as hosted?4. Does this process work when uploading other database files?TSFalconFileMaker, Inc.
Thanks for the assist
- OSX 10.9.5
- Yes. The file is listed as "Closed" (along with the sample database).
- Server is localhost but the "Available Files" list is empty.
TD Miguens:Thank you for the reply."The file is listed as "Closed" (along with the sample database). "Did the files ever open? If you click the folder icon (top right) and click > "Open All" (see screenshot below), then do the files open?If the files still fail to open, then this sounds like a resource issue. How much RAM does the computer have?Do you meet the minimum or recommended requirements outlined in the article below?TSFalconFileMaker, Inc.
Requirements were met - however files did not open (remained in "Closed" state) and no concurrent message appeared in log. Abandoned the install on my laptop and created a fresh external boot disk, started over. This worked great - until it got wedged the same way as the original install. Dug through server log, found an error message that the trial server license key had expired. This was the cause of the "File not found" dialog.
