How do I update changes from FileMaker Pro Advanced to Filemaker Server?

My CWP solution does not recognise the changes I have made to the database in FileMaker Pro Advanced. How do I update the changes to FileMaker Server?


I've added fields through 'File-> Manage -> Database', and added them to the table view of the layout I'm working on. The changes are still there when I close and open the database with FileMaker Pro Advanced through 'File-> Open Remote' and choose the database from the local FileMaker Server.

The following PHP-line does shows the new fields of the layout, but not the ones that I've just added.

echo var_dump($fm->listFields('layout'));


Adding a record with the new fields gives the error 'Field not Found'.


I don't understand how it has worked earlier today, but after a lot of trying and failing it has suddenly worked without me doing anything consistently to make it happen. Until now when it does not update anymore.


I've tried:
1. Restarting FileMaker Server
2. Restarting Web Publishing Engine
3. Restarting FileMaker Server and Web Publishing Engine
4. Closing and opening database in admin-console
5. Closing and opening FileMaker Pro Advanced
6. Restarting FileMaker Server through command line
7. Verifying database
8. Searching the menu-bar in FileMaker Pro Advanced for ways to update changes to the Server
9. Googling for how to update changes from FileMaker client to Server.


I'm using a developer license of FileMaker Server 15, and FileMaker Pro Advanced
Database is hosted locally and I'm using macOS Sierra 10.12.1.
