Installed FileMaker Server 5 but don't know where to input existing Database...Help!

Your post

The machine that was hosting the FileMaker Server 5 blew out it's HardDrive and Motherboard. We have built a new machine and reinstalled Filemaker. We restored all the FileMaker Server files from a Backup Server.

The template that is used to facilitate the files is there but when we double-click it, it searches and cannot find the database files.

Now, my logic is to copy the database that was restored into the new installation directory where the template resides. The template is the only file in this folder at the moment. Is it as simple as copy/pasting the database files into the directory where the template resides or is there another way to do this?

We CANNOT risk data corruption as we know that this can happen if we do the wrong process.

Anyone have any ideas/experience performing this?

I can provide any technical information is it is necessary.

 

Will be online awaiting the knowledge of this forum! Thanks in advance!!
