    Location for HTML files for web viewer in WebDirect on two server deployment


      Hey all


      I have a WebDirect solution that pulls in html into a web viewer in various places. Due to IE restrictions, we hosted those html files on a website and pointed to those from within the webviewer. This worked fine.


      But, I want to move these html files to the FMS HTTPServer folder so they are easier to manage and get served up quicker than being requested from another web server/site.


      I've done this fine on my Mac FMS development server (single server installation). The HTML files went in Library>FileMaker Server>HTTPServer>htdocs. In the web viewer, it points to http://[ip address]/filename.html. Obviously there can be folders for organization within the htdocs folder.


      I am now trying to move it to our production server running Windows 2012 and a two server deployment.

      Let's call the Master machine

      Let's call the worker/WebDirect machine

      I've uploaded the files to:

      C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\HTTPServer\conf

      This has been done on the worker/WebDirect server.

      If I point the web viewer at the web viewer does not render the page - it just says the page can't be displayed, make sure it is correct.


      Before I start digging into firewalls and the like, can anyone confirm that the above should work within a two-server deployment? Hope I've provided enough detail, but let me know if not!


      Many thanks
