Question about upload database from FMP to FMP Server

I have been using FMP for a very long time but I never host it on FM Server.


In the near future, I will going to host my FMP database to FM server.


However, I have some questions that need some clarifications and wondering if anyone could help me with it.


  • If I uploaded the database from FMP to FMP server, will the pictures that in my database also be uploaded? I heard if the picture was inserted to the container with the checkbox of "store only a reference to the file" is checked, then the picture will not be uploaded to the server. But most of my pictures are drag and drop from my computer to the FMP's container field. In this case, will these pictures be uploaded to the server?
  • Do I need to be under same network to do the upload?
  • If two users are editing the same database (not the same record), will there be any conflict?
  • After hosting the database to the FM Server, how does the user access the database using internet browser?
