    Server 13 disabled eventhough its clicked on




      FM server is installed on an Windows 7 professional machine.

      Trying to access with in the internal ethernet network:

      It worked before, now not any more, I disabled a bunch unneeded programs from Windows, but to my knowledge nothing what I needed and upgraded the FM Server version.

      Which programs on windows have to be installed and running so that FM Server 13 is working:


      Here the different screen shots.

      What doesnt make sense is this on the first screen shot (I boxed it red) eventhough all is clicked as enabled.

      What I noticed is that every time I restart the computer "Web Publishing Engine" is turned of and does not auto start anymore.

      "FileMaker WebDirect is disabled"






      This is what the result is when I try to access it on the browser.


      thanks a lot for the help

          I have same issue.


          Re-install full 13v5 doesn't resolve.


          deployment.log shows everything is 'succeeded', but PHP handler is not there.

            It seems repaired.


            Uninstall these



            IIS URL Rewrite Module

            Microsoft Application Request Routing

            Microsoft External Cache for IIS

            Microsoft Web Farm Framework


            and reinstall FMS, others are auto-installed.


            I'm not sure for this is the key, since too many things I did before resolved... disable IIS, install FMSv3 etc.


            I changed install option to unchecking PHP/XML (default) last time, but this shouldn't key. After install, they can be on.


            catalina...log is saying same SEVERE error, so this may be not a problem.


            Good luck.
