FileMaker Server *15* brought back the ability to easily install FMS on a Mac running OSX Server by associating the FMS web services to different non-standard ports (and there are multiple reasons for running "" that I won't go into here...)


FileMaker Server *16* will not install on a Mac running OSX Server because it complains that apache is in use.


The recommended solution for this is to trash to install FMS 16.


This is an unacceptable solution for a number of reasons (I will be happy to go into them if necessary.)


Please bring back the ability to install FMS on a Mac running OS X Server!
