Working with encrypted production FMP DBs

Hey FM Community


I am making my first foray into webDirect and that has forced me to consider encrypted (at rest) FMP databases for the first time.

I am keen to know how others manage these in production environments, for example:

  1. Do you follow a simple set of principles when designing, and implementing for encrypted production environments?
  2. How do you migrate an encrypted production DB to a new DB when its time to upgrade?
  3. Do you always build in export functions for every table that can be activated when an upgrade is required?


I assume that there is some art and some science to this, so any hints would be appreciated.
