I was wondering if some could help me. Pleas note that i not very experienced with SSL and Domains etc, so please respond in detail for a poor newbiw like me!
I have a Filemaker Serve 17 installed. Hosting 5 databases. I can access the databases using the IP address fine. The IP address is static. Using the IP address however will not allow me to use an SSL.
So I have a domain name. So first question, does the Domain name, which will be used as the Server name, have to be in some particular format....i.e. can I just use "www.abcdefgihjl.com", or does it have to be something like "fmserver.abcdefghijl.com"?
Secondly, I have the domain name registered with Go Daddy, but I can't seem to get the domain name to point to the filemaker server. So currently I have "www.abcdefghijl.com" pointing to the the IP address "https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx", but I can't seen to connect t the host using the URL. Which of the "A", or "CNAME" or such like do I need to use.
Apologies if this is little confused but it results from my in-experience in this area. If anyone has a reference to a "Connecting to Filemaker 17 using Go Daddy Domain for Real Dummies" that would be great.
Thanks again for any help anyone can give me.
