      Filemaker Server Advanced - OSX- Wont Install

      Your post

      I am having a problem with Filemaker Server 10 Advanced on an OSX server running snow leapard. I installed the server, however Instant Web Publishing was not working correctly. I was told to re-install the Filemaker software, I proceeded to dump the Filemaker Server folder located in the Library into the Trash. Now when I try to re-install the software I get a message saying that the software is present on the machine and asks if I would like to un-install it. When I say yes to un-install the software I get a warning saying that the software was not found on the server.

       

      Now I can not install Filemaker Software on the server at all.

       

      Any suggestions?

       

      Thanks.

          PHP publishing is working? How you upgrade to SnowLeopard? With FM Server installed or not?

          I suppose - something wrong is happen with Apache webserver.

          Backup everything necessary (TimeMachine), reinstall OS X (erase HD) and so on.

           

          I have 2 such cases with my clients: update to SnowLeopard  with FMS working. Apache "kaput".

          To avoid long job I have done as I have described and they are happy until today. Anyway - 1/2 day was wasted...
