    Adding accounts corrupts database

      Adding accounts corrupts database

      Post

      I create a database in Filemaker Pro 10, and I upload it to my Filemaker Server 10 Advanced 

       

      Then in Filemaker Pro 10 I create and modify the database accounts and passwords

       

      Then I close the database in Filemaker Pro 10

       

      I then open the Filemaker Server Admin console and close the database

       

      When I try to re-open the database on the server the log file shows -Unable to open database "database" (808)

       

      This happens whenever I update database accounts and passwords

       

      Is there any way to open this database?  Why would this be happening?

       

      Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

          Are you connecting to FileMaker Server with FileMaker Pro to modify the database accounts?  Or are you opening the file directly with FileMaker Pro?

           

          Opening up the file directly with FileMaker Pro while the FileMaker Server is hosting the file may corrupt the file.

          If the file is still open in FileMaker Pro and the server has yet to open the file, the FileMaker Server will not be able to open the file.

            I am using filemaker pro to connect to the database on the server.  I open the database using the file/open remote feature.  I then add an account, and the next time the database is closed on the server I get an error when I try to open the database:

             

            Unable to open database "database" (808)
