      FMS 10 console not starting

      Your post

      FMS 10

      OS X Server 10.5.7

       

      Attempts to start the FMS console fail; the browser displays the error message:

       

      FileMaker Server has encountered an error:
      The requested resource (/) is not available.

       

       This along with the less than helpful suggestion:

       

      If the Server Launch Page is not available, visit the FileMaker Website for more assistance. 

       

       

      This was working fine until early in April; I deduce that's when it stopped working not because I know for sure, but because backups stopped running at that time.

       

      Short of de/reinstalling FMS, is there a fix?

          Thank you for your post.

           

          Unfortunately, the error message is not much help since it refers to a resource with no name.

           

          Before uninstalling and reinstalling, stop and restart the server.  You can do this from the command line interface as follows:

           

          fmsadmin close (this will close all of your database files)

           

          fmsadmin stop server

           

          fmsadmin start server

           

          If this fails, then try entering the following command:

           

          sudo apachetl -t

           

          If this fails, then it is difficult to determine what is the cause.  I would then perform an uninstall and reinstall of FileMaker Server 10.
