Filemaker cannot share files over the web because of a port number conflict

Your post

I am getting the following error:

"Filemaker cannot share files over the Web because of a port number conflict. Please configure web publishing to use a different port"

 

This error occurs when I access my filemaker database offsite from our offices and try to do a find. The database ends up locking up for saying Filemaker (not responding). I force quit and when I reopen filemaker I get the above error message.

 

I have the following configuration for my server/database:

 

  • Server - 
    • OS - Leopard Server 10.5.8
    • Filemaker 10 Server (not utilizing web publishing)
    • Also utilizing ODBC driver to connect to mysql database located on a separate machine
  • Desktop 
    • Filemaker 10 Advanced
    • OS - Leopard 10.5.8
