    Filemaker Server Advanced 7



      Filemaker Server Advanced 7

      Your post

           I have been using Filemaker 6 for many years. I just purchased a copy of Filemaker Server Advanced 7 so I can covert & publish my databases via the web. The questions I have are...

           1. Do I need a copy of standard Filemaker 7 in order to create and make changes to databases?

           2. If yes, do I just need 1 copy of FM7 and that would be the copy that is hosted by Server Advanced?

           Thanks, Mike

               Yes to both questions, but you just purchased server advanced 7?!!!

               You are aware that this is a very old version of FileMaker Server? (Current version is version 13).

               And it is my understanding that this was a version with a lot of issues as it was the first to support multiple tables in a single file, so you'll need any available updaters.

               Seems like your money would be much better spent getting a more recent version of FileMaker even though you will need to invest more time and effort into the file conversion process.

                 I doubt there is any way a person could have "just purchased" FMS 7. Certainly not from FileMaker.
