    Any suggestions on how I can correct this constant error in the system log?

    jc_sc

      I did have PHP configured but now I have a constant error which I can't figure out how to fix. I won't bore you with all of the things I've done to try and fix it, but will just present the symptoms:

       

      When enabling Web publishing technologies in the Deployment Assistant, I check PHP, and regardless which of the two options I select, (yes, install the FMS supported version of PHP5) or (No, use my existing installation of the PHP engine) the installation fails.

       

      When looking for the reason I found the following error popping up every 10 seconds in the system log:

       

      Could not open configuration file /Library/FileMaker Server/Admin/admin-helper/WEB-INF/conf/fmi-test.conf: No such file or directory

       

      Any suggestions?

       

      I appreciate your help!

          You didn't say which platform you are on, but assuming you have checked and the file is in the directory path you listed above - check the permissions!  They must be the same as the overall Admin folder - and I have found that at least on OSX they get messed up easily.

           

          If the permissions are not correct, I recommend you use a command line to fix them.  That seems to be the way to get them to "stick" the best..

           

          If the file is NOT in the directory - hopefully you have a backup somewhere!

           

          Hope that helps!

            Karen, Thanks so much for your reply, and I did have a problem in permissions in the past just as you describe. In this case however it seemed as if I was stuck in a loop where Filemaker could not initialize PHP.

            I'm not that familiar with the terminal but have done a lot of stuff over the years so thought I'd check out the apache config file httpd.conf.

             

            At the bottom of the file where some items added by Filemaker when I installed Filemaker Server originally. I carefully deleted those items restoring the file to it's pre-Filemaker state.

             

            When I went back into Filemaker Server and edited the server deployment, this time it allowed me to deploy the PHP webserver, and it correctly found Apache server and set it up. I went back into httpd.conf and found that Filemaker had added those deleted lines back in, and everything seems to be OK now.

             

            What a happy feeling when things work!

             

            Best Regards,
