FileMaker Server 13.0v4 freezing & crashing constantly

Your post

Well, this is the final straw for my client, and they have now threatened to permanently leave the FileMaker platform for good, because it is completely unstable & unreliable.

Our FileMaker Server 13.0v4 software is continuing to freeze on a regular & weekly basis. We are now having FileMaker Server 13 completely freeze at least once every 7 days, sometimes up to 5 times per week.

We are running FileMaker Server 13.0v4 on a brand new Mac Pro running OS X 10.9.5. Every single one of our 57 client computers running FileMaker Pro 13.0v3 got the hourglass symbol today, and could not do ANYTHING within FileMaker Pro at all.

On the FileMaker Server machine itself, we TRIED to "close" the database, but FileMaker Server is just stuck in a permanent "Closing" state. FileMaker Server just stays on "Closing" forever! Please see attached screenshot.

Our ONLY option is to force shut down the machine, which then corrupts our FileMaker Pro databases.

Great job, FileMaker, at losing yet another customer of your product!! Maybe FileMaker Inc. shouldn't have fired 30 engineers last year?
