There seems to be little interest by anyone in these discussion grouops in dealing with odbc php questions especially on a Mac
There seems to be perfectly valid technologies available but on to windows servers. I am unable to access filemaker files using odbc from PHP on anything higer than 10.6.8. I have upgraded my web server to 10.9 but still have to use my 10.6.8 server to run my PHP odbc scripts which is frustrating. We need to find someone who is a PHP expert to build odbc into the servers PHP as was poaiable on 10.6.8.
Sorry not to ba able to help
There is little PROMOTION of FM web publishing with ODBC, although it's quite viable.
You are both correct, the installed PHP is meant to be used with the FM API for PHP (or anything that can send/receive XML queries/results) and may not contain the necessary components for xDBC/SQL with PHP.
If you are not making XML queries, is it necessary to stay with that version or PHP? Not rhetorical and I don't have an answer. I don't have the bank of servers I once had to test these things, so I'm just speculating.
Still following this up. I need ODBC in PHP on Mac as the filemaker databases I need to access only allow ODBC access for me, not PHP direct. I would love to sort this out as I have to use my old webserver to do the odbc access rather than my new webserver that runs our website. Gets a bit complex haha
Thank you for your post!
I am going to move this thread from the FileMaker DevCon Space, which is specifically for DevCon discussion, to the Discussions Space where you should receive more views and potentially more advice!
