FMS 14.0.4 update issue - Web Server greyed out

Hey all


Took the plunge to test out FMS 14.0.4 update on my development server. It should be noted:

The machine is a Mac Mini running Yosemite

Mac Server app is not installed

It's a fresh OS install from about a month ago and is used sole for FMS - nothing else is running on it

Web Server appeared fine before updating - it certainly had the green circle/check mark

Followed recommended procedures, stopping the FMS, WPE and ODBC, before installing the update

Have rebooted multiple times


Issue is that Web Server section is greyed out. PHP and XML are enabled. If I try to redeploy, I get to the web server test and it says the connection is refused. I found this post: Re: FMS 13/Macintiosh  = "Cannot contact web server" - Maverick's issue? In there, wimdecorte suggests using netstat, which didn't seem to reveal much in this situation and then run this in terminal:

sudo /Library/Filemaker\ Server/HTTPServer/bin/httpdctl graceful


When I run that, I get this:


/usr/sbin/httpd -k graceful -D FILEMAKER -f /Library/FileMaker Server/HTTPServer/conf/httpd.conf


AH00526: Syntax error on line 66 of /Library/FileMaker Server/HTTPServer/conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf:


SSLPassPhraseDialog: file '/usr/local/bin/fmsgetpasskey' does not exist


exit code 1



Thoughts, comments, suggestions? I have not yet uninstalled and reinstalled FMS, and would like to avoid that if possible. fmnet functions are working fine.
