We updated 2 machines running FM Server 14.0v3 to 14.0v4, one on Windows Server 2012 and one on Mac OS X Server 10.10.5.  Both servers failed to start web services.  On the Windows server we restored the VM back to before the update to solve the problem.  On the Mac however we tried to determine the issue which appeared to be a bad line in:


/Library/FileMaker Server/HTTPServer/conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf

In that file, line 65 on a working server was:

SSLPassPhraseDialog  exec:/usr/local/bin/fmsgetpasskey

but on the server that would not start it was:

SSLPassPhraseDialog  exec:/usr/bin/fmsgetpasskey

I edited the file to add the missing "/local" and was able to resume web services however there were other problems too which I will report separately.
