Product and version: FileMaker Pro 16

OS and version: Mac OS X 10.12 and 10.11



- opening a webpage that is protected with htaccess by sending username/password in URL (for uploading a file)

i.e. https://user:pw@mywebite.com/form.phppw@mywebite.com/form.php

- form.php gets the filename and calls antother php file which makes the upload




- FileMaker Pro 16 on Windows 7: No problem at all.

form.php gets the filename and passes it to upload.php. File will be uploaded (and processed later on)


- FileMaker Advanced 16 on Mac OS X 10.12 Sierra: form.php can be loaded and it accepts the the filename, but no upload through upload.php

(I guess the filename is not passed from form.php to upload.php)


- FileMaker Pro 16: form.php can not be loaded at all (Apache Error page - authentication...)


- all combinations of FileMaker 15 and lower  / with all mac os and windows versions: no problem at all.

everything works


The form.php / upload.php combination is part of a webshop api, which runs since about 8 years. Only FM16 Mac stops its function.
