    FMS 10 console not starting



      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.
