      Problems installing Filemaker Server 10

      Your post

      Yesterday I tried to install Filemaker 10 Server but it kept coming up with the following when I tried to install it, "FileMaker Server 9 is installed" and apparently I have to remove it as you can only have one server installed at a time. Fair enough but I have already binned Filemaker 9.0 application and server but I still get told I have Filemaker 9 installed. Any help on this matter is most welcome.

          I have tried the following but without success:-

          Try the following:

          1.  Launch Terminal and type in the following commands:

               fmsadmin STOP

               sudo launchctl stop com.filemaker.fms 

           

          2.  Verify that the Mac HD > Library > FileMaker Server folder has been removed.  If not, move it to the trash and empty the trash.  

           

          3.  Reboot

           

          4.  Try the following command in Terminal again:

               sudo launchctl stop com.filemaker.fms 

           

          5.  Verify in Activity Monitor that there are no FMS services running 

          6.  Reinstall FMS.

           

          After doing 1. I get fmsadmin: really stop? (y, n) y
          but then it is IP Address is invalid or inaccessible.

          So still struggling.

            Thank you for your posts.

             

            All the steps you have documented are good.  However, I need some additional answers. 

             

            Did you uninstall FileMaker Server 9 or simply moved files/folders to the trash?

             

            Do you have any user names of fmsadmin or fmsserver?  I would search for this first.

             

            Was FileMaker Server installed to a different user account than the current user account?

             

            Any other information you can provide may be helpful.
