FileMaker Server Additional Database Folder

Discussion created by DickHoning on Mar 15, 2018

Hi there,


I'm trying to create an additional database folder on FileMaker Server on macOS High Sierra. The path is as follows;


filemac:/Macintosh HD/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Export/


I have created the Export folder and made sure that the access privileges are ok.


When I try the Validate and Save buttons, nothing happens whereas the same configuration of my development server return validation info and actually saves the settings.


Any idea what I might be doing wrong?


And a second question; when selecting [√] Back up container data folder 1 I get the following message; 'Selecting this option could hurt Database Server performance.' Any ideas what this might actually mean and what the effects are if you do not select this option?


Thanks in advance and best regards.
