Can anyone suggest a good 64bit php plugin that works with FileMaker Server 13?
I currently use PHP SmartPill but it is not currently compatible since it is not 64bit.
...nothing that is as awesome as SmartPill. I've tinkered with some other options via command line scripting & BaseElements, but the escaping / quoting becomes a nightmare.
I'd wait it out if you can. That's what we're doing as well as looking into options to temporarially run server schedules on a client box if we upgrade before version 3 of SmartPill is available.
Just talked today with client about updating our MBS Plugin to use a newer PHP version which works with 64bit.
The other way is to put php where it belongs (on a webserver) and use CURL functions to talk to the php script.
(web server can be a local apache on Mac OS X for example)
Yep, SmartPill had worked for us for a long time. We might just run SmartPill on FMPro13 on the server computer to do the task while they release the 64bit version
Thanks for the reply but for the small task we need the php plugin for it is not worth having to manage a web server.
Make sure to bug micah about it too. If he hears enough demand for a 64-bit version of smartpill he might invest the time to create an update.
Can you configure your FM server to act as a web server? Just another option, since Christian's option is actually a very good one (and plugin/32/64 context free).
Micah is already knee deep in SmartPill v3, which will be 32/64 bit. I've been bugging him for some time, but at this point there's no estimated release date...
Well… If you want it any faster you might have to write it yourself.
That's the downside of depending on plug-ins!
I'll give it a shot and test that out.
I've already contacted him and he told me he is 6 months or more out. Who knows, he might have just been giving me a generic timeframe.
