    Filemaker Server 8 connection failed



      Filemaker Server 8 connection failed

      Your post

      I originally installed Server 8 more than a year ago, it appeared to be working then. I have not opened or connected to the server since then, but I have been trying to do so today. I start the server processes and then attempt to connect to the server, but the connection fails and will not let me into the admin.  Any help resolving this would be much appreciated.

          Thank you for your post.


          Obviously, something has changed on the server since the last time you used it, and I don't expect anyone to remember the possible changes over the past year!  There are several factors, and it can be quite difficult to step through each possibility.


          Instead of trying to determine the possible cause(s), I would just uninstall and reinstall FileMaker Server 8.  This gives you a fresh start and makes sure everything is working properly.
