Update FM Server documentation about folders allowed for hosting DB files

The current documentation for FMServer regarding the location of files that can be hosted needs a bit more clarification.  The clarification is that the server will only recognize files that are stored in the specified folder and in one folder below that.  So you can't create a sub-directory depth of more than 1 folder.

 

Here's the current FMS 15 help document:

And for FMS 16:

FileMaker Server 16 Help

 

Here's the KB article that does the clarification:
