    Is PHP still unlimited in FMS13?

    CarlSchwarz

      Does Filemaker server 13 still allow unlimited PHP connections to the sever?

       

      I've been looking again this morning but I can't find any documentation on this.

      The development license says that FMServer allows "three simultaneous web-based clients for Custom Web Publishing". Surely that doesn't mean that I can only have 3 simultaneous PHP connections running? Is the full server unlimited if the development server is limited?

       

       

      Thanks.

          Hey Carl

           

          Nothings changed there - see http://www.filemaker.co.uk/products/filemaker-server/server-13-specifications.html where it says

           

          Capacities

           

          The table below lists the tested and theoretical maximum simultaneous connection limits for FileMaker Server 13. Tested maximums reflect the test configuration and do not represent a guarantee of performance.

           

          FileMaker Server 13

          Type of clients     Tested     Theoretical

          FileMaker Pro     250     Unrestricted**

          Custom Web Publishing (CWP)*     200     2000

          FileMaker Go     50     Unrestricted**

          FileMaker WebDirect     50     50

          ODBC/JDBC     50     Unrestricted**

          *Multiple users can share a single CWP connection. CWP Connections are based on simultaneous request events, rather than persistent connections.

           

          **Connections are limited only by your hardware, database design, and operating system.

            Actually, I correct myself - it has 'in theory' increased with 13 - here's the same details for 12 (from http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10072/)

              Aha thanks for finding that for me!!! I'm glad to see the theoretical limit go up too though I wonder about those limits since server has been saying 250 FMPro clients since around FM11.
