      Filemaker server - help understanding what it does

      Your post

      Hi all,

      I have a large database which is shared by about 30 users.  I wish to improve performance.  Would setting up the standard server help with this?  I see the user guide mentions things like sort's being carried out on the server rather than locally - does existing code need to be re-written to do this?

       

      Thanks

          If you are asking if you need to modify the design of your database to move it from being hosted by a copy of FileMaker Pro to being Hosted by FileMaker server, then you are unlikely to need to make any changes to the file. Server does, however offer options, such as scheduling a script to run at a specific time of day that you cannot do without server so you may find there are changes you want to make in order to take advantage of such additional options.
