Upload to FM Server or just copy the fmp12 files?

Your post

Is there any difference if I use the Upload to Filemaker Server menu item in FM Pro, or if I simply copy the databases into one of the Server directories.

If I try to upload I get 'Connection failed' error.

If I copy the database to the server folder and open it in Server Admin then clients can connect and use the database.

Do I need to try and fix the Connection Failed error or can I simply copy the databases manually?

Thanks
