Are you still running IWP or have you updated this to WebDirect? I ask this because, 13 doesn't support IWP at all and the new licensing setup could require a lot more horse power then a Mac mini to support WebDirect for a large number of Students. Of couse I don't know what your DB does so it may only have a few connections at a time and work perfectly on a small box with limited connections.
Take a look at the FM13 WebDirect Guide.
In it there is a section called Linking to a database from an HTML page
The section describes how to setup a page on the server that will direct the user to your database.
Thanks for the reply Bruce. I've done a clean install on the server so it's all FMPSA13. So I'm running webdirect.. The files that are on the server that are online are just one page signups. So the overhead on the MacMini isn't that huge.
But the file that I needed I found today.
I made some changes to that file that re-directs to the database server.uoregon.edu/fmi/webd/#database name.
So it's a bit rough and doesn't look great, but it works.
Thanks for the help.
