      FMSA 10v1 on OS X 10.5: restarting Web Publishing from the command line

      Your post

      In previous versions of FMSA for OS X, it was possible to restart the Web Publishing component of the server via the command line with, e.g.

       

      sudo SystemStarter restart 'FileMaker Web Publishing'

       

      This appears to no longer be effective in FMSA 10v1 for OS X 10.5. (Not quite surprising, since the switch to launchd.)

       

      The manual notes that it's possible to manually stop and restart all processes from the command line with launchctl:

       

      sudo launchctl stop com.filemaker.fms

      sudo launchctl start com.filemaker.fms

       

      Which is undesirable. Is it possible to just restart the Web Publishing component from the command line? It's a multi-server deployment, with the DB and WPE on separate servers. The launchctl stop/start was attempted on the WPE server alone, but it didn't come back and the server had to be fully restarted for it to work again.

       

      Thanks in advance!
