Looks like you are serving on OS X. A few questions... When you ran the deployment wizard, did you choose to enable and install PHP? The first thing I would try would be to run the deployment wizard again and try to select those options. That can be done while the server is up and running.
If that doesn't work, then a FMS reinstall would be my next option. Especially if you have also installed OS X's server app. In fact, if you have server.app installed, disable the web services on that app, as they conflict with FMS's apache instance. So, 1) disable server.app web server, 2) clean reinstall FMS.
By clean reinstall, backup config and files and then completely remove the FileMaker Server folder from Library and let the installer put everything back in place. At least that has worked for me in the past, tho it does require some downtime.
How do I start the deployment wizard again?
Upon opening localhost:16001 as per instructions found here (Deployment Wizard does not launch after Installation | FileMaker )
, I get this error :
HTTP Status 404 - /error/HTTP_BAD_REQUEST.html.var
FileMaker Server has encountered an error:
The requested resource is not available.
If the Server Launch Page is not available, visit the FileMaker Website for more assistance.
And I searched on my Macintosh HD for "Server.app" but could not find it , forgive me as I am a windows user so not too mac savvy, how do I disable their services?
You have to be able to log into the admin console to run the deployment wizard. If you can't get that far, you should back up your files and reinstall.
Can you get to https://localhost:16000/admin-console?
Yes I can, I have the admin console in front of me now but I don't see an option to open the deployment wizard so far.
Thanks for taking your time to help by the way
Never mind found the deployment wizard, I'll keep you updated soon on the outcome
I managed to get it working by running the deployment wizard again. Thank you !
