      IWP - No Database available

      Your post

      I've created a database for IWP.  It had been working fine for about 1 week.  Now when you go the the website the following message appears:  "No Databases Available."  Nothing has changed on the server.  Two databases had been appear previously, the custom made one and the Filemaker Sample.  Help!!

          Thank you for your post.

           

          It appears that either the web publishing engine has stopped, or FileMaker Server has stopped.

           

          Go into Admin Console, and make sure the Web Publishing engine is running.  If not, turn it on.  You can then check the logs to see when the web publishing engine stopped and the reason.

           

          If the Web Publishing engine is running, select Databases, and close the databases.  After the database files are closed, then reopen them.  Try accessing the files via Instant Web Publishing again.  Are you able to get the Instant Web Publishing home page?  If not, then perhaps the Web Publishing Engine has stopped and either FileMaker Server or Admin Console doesn't recognize it.  Close all database files and quit FileMaker Server.  Launch FileMaker Server and try again.

           

          If restarting FileMaker Server isn't working, then reboot the server and try again.

           

          If rebooting doesn't work, then something has changed either at the system level or with FileMaker Server application.  Try uninstalling and reinstalling FileMaker Server.

           

          Check the log files for more information.

           

          Please keep me updated with any progress.

            Thank you.  Everything seems to be running.  I checked the log and found this error on FM Web Publishing - - wpc1 Error: 500.  I don't know what that means.  I'm going to down the db and restart it.  It that doesnt work then I restart the server.

              Unfortunately, there are no descriptions for most of the error codes in the web publishing engine, and Error 500 is one of those with no description.  Log at the log entries just prior to the Error message, as this may provide a clue.  Sorry I can't be more helpful.  If you want to pursue this further, let me know, and I'll make arrangements to receive your log files.

                Another thing I noticed is that when I went to Services, it said that the Filemaker Server had stopped.  Not sure how that could be becuase there were more than 40 users connected to 5 different databases.

                  I would like to pursue it further as I need to get the iwp working for my one database.

                    The IWP dbs were up all of 45 minutes.  Now the web page is saying No Databases available again..

                      I have sent you a private message (top of this page - right side - X Messages) with instructions where to send your log files.  I'll look through them and try to determine what may be causing the problem on your system.
