Using PHP to authenticate access to forms on FM Server 8
We currently use Filemaker Server 8 to publish and host our forms. One particular form requires the user to first login through an authentication system and a token is passed back as a GET variable. This needs to happen so that only valid users can fill out that form. We would like to use PHP in the form page to send and receive GET/POST variables as a way to authenticate that token.
We know that the HTML generated by the FM Server Instant Web Publishing uses the post method to submit the form data. Do you think it is possible to copy that FORM code into our custom PHP page?
Does FM Server 8 have some sort of PHP web publishing tool?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Thank you for your post.
FileMaker Server 9 introduced Custom Web Publishing with PHP, and it is also present in the current version (FileMaker Server 10). Publishing with PHP is not available in FileMaker Server 8.
