      Help! FMSA10 cand deploy web services on OS X Server.

      Your post

      Hello Everyone,

       

      I just recently purchased FMSA and I would like to use the XML and PHP web services but I'm having a really hard time just deploying the web publishing engine.

       

      I'm running it on a MAC OS X Server, it comes with Apache 2.2. Server Advanced installed  ok and I can host my files and everything. The problem comes in when I try to enalbe the web services like XML, XSLT and php.

       

      I go to the deployment, slect the services then Filemaker tells me that an Apache server has been found. I select single machine installation thenclik next and FMS tries to configure the web server but is unable to. It asks me to specify the protocol (http or https, the IP number and the port. I put the machine's IP and every single imaginable port but it won't work. 

       

      The web server seems to be running ok, if I go to the statc IP address it shows that it's turned on. I don't have any other services or applications that use a web server installed in this machine, it's just a dedicated Filemaker sever.

       

      Does any one have any idea why this might be ocurring? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

       

      Thanks

          Thank you for your post, and I apologize for the late reply.

           

          It sounds like there may be something corrupt with the install of Apache.  Try restoring Apache to its default settings (assuming you're not hosting other websites).  To reset apache, go into Terminal and enter:

           

          sudo cp /etc/apache2/original/httpd.conf /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
