      FMP Server on OSX Server

      Your post

      I think this is a simple question, though so far I've had no luck finding the answer.

       

      If I install FMP server on a machine running OSX Server --- is it necessary to always have a user logged in at the console for the database to be "Served" ?  

       

      That is, does the FMP Server software have to run as a GUI application, with a logged-in user?  

       

      Or can it run the way Oracle or MySQL do - as a background server process, coming online at startup?

       

      Failing that,  I see that FMP 10 client can keep its data on a MySQL server -- so could I configure my OSX server with MySQL, and just have the FMP10 clients connect to it remotely (WITHOUT an FMP installation on the server) ?
