Return to FileMaker.com
Mac 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo, 6GB RAM, OS X 10.9.5
Tried to install server update. Error: Filemaker server must be stopped.
Opened Admin Console and turned off all server services (even auto start). Same error message.
Restarted machine, still got the error.
Checked all file and folder permissions. Everything "Read-Write".
I decided to update after getting "database not modifiable" errors on some served files (not all).
p.s. I guess reinstalling FMS 13 is an option. I might also just switch to FMS 14. I have some clients using FMS 13, so I decided to stick with FMS 13, but I probably should update.
