I've enabled Webdirect, and installed FM Server and can access my application fine with FM. But where do I find the URL for accessing it via Webdirect?
typically this is
'host' being the IP or domain (and port, if necessary)
https may also be required instead of http.
I just did this yesterday.
https://domain-name or ip-address/fmi/webd
It didn't work for me. I tried with three different browsers. I went to Network Operations. He was able to pull up the file on Webdirect. So, it does work . I just need to ask for my technical difficulties.
What about the port?
Do you have access to the Admin Console? I believe it will tell you what IP/domain and possibly what port.
Did you try the test page to the Sample database when you first set up?
I do have access to the Console. I did not try a test page with the sample. Webdirect is a secondary concern to my goal. I have three payable files and one receivable file that I have been hosting locally. If I am out, the files are not opened for my two co-workers to access.
I got the developer version to learn about FMS. And, to have better management of the four files. There are some potential projects using FMP for inventory and such. So I did not initially try webdirect.
The Manager in our NOC was able to view the receivable file via webdirect. So I know the server is configured correctly. Now I just need to determine (with his help) what the problem is for the workstations.
Beverly, on a side note I uploaded on file. There is a problem. According to Console, one file is only accessible via webdirect. The Manager in our NOC was able to open this file. But, I cannot remove through the Console. I need to upload a file with the correct security. Is it safe to delete a file outside of the Console, from File Explorer?
ah, did you have the Extended Privileges set for Web Direct (and the Accounts that can use it)?
I am guessing I made a bone-head mistake and did not have the "right-stuff" clicked as I did with the other files I uploaded to the server. Now it is a matter of trying to correct the problem. The problem file is one I work with solely, however, I am trying to get it adopted by the department. It my scanned invoices.
While I cannot eliminate paper, I can work around that. I have been doing it a year, so there is some good historical data to illustrate the positives. Everyone in the department has a version of Filemaker Pro (13, 14, and 15). When 16 comes out, I plan to upgrade everyone to that, for consistency.
