I found the download section for FMServer 15 developer version, I found the version 14 server developer key, but none for 15... where can I find the Server 15 developer licence key?
All your license keys are stored in the Member Benefits section of the FileMaker Community (toward the bottom and potentially below the fold of your screen)
If they are not there, let me know and I will have someone look into it for you.
Not showing there (see attached screen snap shot)
I'll pass this on to someone to have a look at.
You should be OK now.
Thank you very much Steve... one more quick question... thanks to a crapped out hard drive, I've had to re-build my OS and re-install the whole kit and kaboodle, but it looks like the 15 installer still thinks the 14 is installed, where do I get the 14 uninstaller from? I have tried to locate it on my (recovered) hard drive, but alas, it's not there.
There is one in the "Extras" folder in the FMS install dmg.
Bigtom's answer below is correct but I found I had to download the FMS installer a second time to have the Extras folder.
only 1 problem, the un-installer says there is no 14 found and the 15 installer says it's installed...
I'll sort it out tomorrow, weekend awaits me!
In that case can't you just install 15?
When trying to install 15, OP stated that an install of FMS14 was detected. However the uninstaller is not detecting it.
Maybe a restart? FMI does provide free install support for FMS so at worst you could call them.....Monday.
In the past I have backed up schedules, and the data folder to another location and then deleted the entire FMS folder to the trash. Emptied the trash and installed. This was before I figured out where the uninstaller was.
Move or rename the original FileMaker Server folder
NOTE: Do not delete this folder or you will lose your databases.
Remove the fmserver user (Mac only)
Open Terminal and run the following command: sudo dscl . -delete /Users/fmserver
Delete the LaunchDaemon plists (Mac only)

I too am having difficulty. I've just downloaded and began the installation of FileMaker Server 15 Dev ...and entered the license key provided. I receive an error "The license key entered is invalid...". I've checked for spaces and accuracy but no luck. Help?
Disregard. I pasted the key into textedit and then pasted it into the key field.... Tricky tricky!
