    Problem upgrading Filemaker Server 9 to server 10



      Problem upgrading Filemaker Server 9 to server 10

      Your post


      I'm new to filemaker and I've been tasked with doing an upgrade on our existing system.


      Luckily I'm using a test box so nothing has gone live yet.


      We recently purchased Filemaker Server 10.

      I've been through the chapter 5 on on the getting started document for doing the upgrade.

      • Stopped the server.
      • Backed up all scripts databases.
      • Then uninstalled Server 9.
      • Installed Server 10.
      • Moved all my databases back.


      All the config is the same but the PHP wont activate on the webserver (it's all running from a Windows 2003 Virtual server w/ IIS6.0).

      I've double checked the config. 

      I've stopped and started IIS.


      The deployment picks up the IIS and says it's available.

      But won't access PHP.


      I'm down to unistalling FM Server 10 and about to reisntall.


      Has anyone else had this problem and can shed light on it?

          Thank you for your post.
          There has been a problem reported where the PHP files for FileMaker Server 10 do not overwrite the PHP files for FileMaker Server 9.
          When you install FileMaker Server 10, the FM_API_for _PHP_Standalone.zip file is put inside the Web Publishing folder.  Open this file, and a FileMaker.php file and a FileMaker folder are extracted.  Copy this file and folder into the following directory:
          or, one of the include_path directories in your PHP installation.
          Let me know how this works for you.
