Web Publishing Engine Crashes

Filemaker Pro Advanced on Mac OS 10.10.5

Filemaker Server on Mac OS 10.11.5  (Mac Mini, 2.6 GHz i5  8GB)

Safari 10.0 or Chrome 53.0.2785.116 or Opera 40.0.2308.75


Created a standard form with 1 database field on it, enabled it for WebD, uploaded to server. Worked.

After that I have created another form, some more fields on it but still without any bells and whistles. As I clicked on the file shown on “…/fmi/webd”, the Web Publishing Engine crashes. The first few times I was simply restarting the WP engine but for some reason this doesn't help (anymore). Restarting everything including the Mac Mini keeps resulting in a communication error message.


I have no idea what’s wrong with the form in the first place (to make WPE crash), as well as how to get out of this “state” (beside a complete re-install). Anyone any ideas? As a non-pro on Filemaker I am stuck. Apologies if I missed any important information ...


Thanks, Wolfgang


Added the OSX crash report if it's worth anything.
