According to


My two databases should be in /Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Databases/


When installed, there is one sample database. It's in that folder, but in its own sub-folder:


Databases <- folder

    Sample <folder

          FMServer_Sample.fmp12 <- sample database

          RC_Data_FMS <- another folder


I have two databases. Should I just stick them directly under .../Databases/ like the FileMaker docs say? Or should I make a sub-folder for them? If I make a sub-folder should it be one sub-folder for both databases or two separate sub-folders?


Note: The reason I'm uploading them manually via SFTP is to save time and bandwidth. The larger of the two databases is 7 GB, but only 1.2 GB compressed.
