    Windows & Server 11 & PHP



      Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard

      IIS 7.5


      PHP site assistant installed



      On installation went for defaults


      Using PHP site assistant I am able to configure CWP, and can access webpages via server IP address internally via

      BUT this seems to only remain active for short period of time.

      Set it up last week, confirmed working, returned today and get the following message:


      401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials.

      You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.


      I returned to PHP site assistant, and get:

      The following error occurred when opening the project file:

      Could not establish a connection with the server.


      Not sure where to start solving this puzzle.

      Is it an IIS issue?

      or FMSA?


      I think I need help from a windows FMP developer/guru.

          Hi Michael,


          I would check the basics first and ensure that (using the FileMaker Server Admin Console) Web Publishing is enabled and running and that you have the green lights in the overview section for the web server and php. Finally check that the account you are logging in with has the php extended privilege in the associated Privilege Set.

            Thanks so far.

            1 Bit the bullet and reinstalled IIS, restarted server a couple of times.

            2 Now IIS default page appears.

            3 added code on IIS default page to point to required home page

            4 now to get it visible to outside world
