Sync multiple FileMaker Servers for load balancing and clustering or to speed up slow connection to FileMaker Server. Using MirrorSync to cluster FileMaker Servers running side-by-side can increase server availability for your mission critical solution. Through data replication, you can ensure server reliability by balancing loads and handling server failure.
MirrorSync can sync directly between FileMaker Go and any supported server database, including MySQL, Sequel Server, Oracle, DynamoDB, Amazon RedShift, Salesforce, and any JDBC-compatible database. You will need FileMaker Server running for the configuration process, but the actual synchronization script will communicate from FileMaker Go MirrorSync server Any supported database server. Even container fields are supported; they are stored as BLOB data on an SQL server, or on S3 for DynamoDB.
Almost none; the Data API is used to initiate the MirrorSync script on the server. After that the actual data transfer is done between the MirrorSync script on FileMaker Server and the MirrorSync web application using the Insert from URL script step.
Your data is valuable. FMPHost understands this and goes the extra mile to protect it. Every night a live snapshot of your database is taken and archived off of your server and made available in your control panel for immediate download. You can also initiate your own backups at any time. As an additional measure of protection, FMPHost provides our Remote Backup feature which automatically pushes the backups to you every time one is created. FMPHost supports emailing your backup as an attachment, transferring it to your FTP server or placing it into your Dropbox folder. Never worry about losing your data again.
FileMaker Database Hosting is designed for customers who want a managed, low cost alternative to traditional dedicated server hosting. Unlike our FileMaker Server Hosting plan, our FileMaker Database Hosting plan only backs up the databases and not the entire server. In the unlikely event your server becomes unrecoverable, we will redeploy a new server instance and restore your backed up databases.
FileMaker is a cross-platform relational database application from Claris International, a subsidiary of Apple Inc. It integrates a database engine with a graphical user interface (GUI) and security features, allowing users to modify a database by dragging new elements into layouts, screens, or forms. It is available in desktop, server, iOS and web-delivery configurations.
Version 4.0, introduced in 1997, added a plug-in architecture much like that of Adobe Photoshop, which enabled third-party developers to add features to FileMaker. A bundled plug-in, the Web Companion, allowed the database to act as a web server. Other plug-ins added features to the interface and enabled FileMaker to serve as an FTP client, perform external file operations, and send messages to remote FileMaker files over the Internet or an intranet.
On September 27, 2016, FileMaker Cloud was introduced, including a Linux server (CentOS), which was offered exclusively through the Amazon Marketplace. In November 2019, FileMaker Cloud was reintroduced as a software as a service product offered directly from Claris for FileMaker Pro 18.0.3 using FileMaker Server Cloud 2.18 service on Amazon servers, but managed by Claris instead of through the Amazon Marketplace, and making use of the new FileMaker ID authentication.
With FileMaker Server 19.5, you could pick either Ubuntu 18.04 LTS or 20.04 LTS; now, you need to use Ubuntu 20.04. If you are upgrading your server from 19.5 to 19.6, we suggest that you install Ubuntu 20 fresh instead of upgrading the OS from 18 to 20.
And speaking of old features: in prior versions of FileMaker Server up to and including version 16, you could specify groups of sub-administrators and assign them certain privileges on files hosted from a particular folder on your server. FileMaker Server 19.6 brings this feature back so you can give groups of people control over files, segregated by folder, without having to give out the master password of your FileMaker Server or adding them to a single External Authentication group that gives them access to everything.
Python is not installed by default on your Windows or Linux server and I do not recommend installing Python on your server to run this code. Rather I suggest copying these python files over to a machine that has Python or where you can install Python.
Claris still has the same minimum hardware requirements as the other operating systems: dual-core CPU with 8GB of memory (as of version 19.3). Not all server specs are equal, either. Older hardware, even with the same specs, will likely be significantly slower. To get the best experience, we recommend getting as close to the most recent generation of hardware as possible.
First, you'll need access to an Ubuntu server running version 19. Then log in. We'll use our scripts to both update the server and install FMS, so we will import them. We will be using vim, but feel free to use your text editor of choice.
Now we can run our two scripts. First, run the update by typing "./script_update.sh". This will update the server. If it's brand-new, it will also install programs necessary for us to install FileMaker Server.
Next, let's take a look at the script that downloads and installs FileMaker Server. The link used in this script varies depending on the version. To make sure you have the correct link, you'll need to visit your licensing page. You can then right-click the download link for the Ubuntu server and click "copy link address". This will be the most up-to-date version, so if it differs from the information in the attached script, you'll want to update it before running.
Log into your server using your external IP address. The general format is "https://:16000". We recommend using an SSL certificate, so be sure to load it in. As with normal FMS, you'll need to restart the FileMaker Server service before the license will start functioning as expected.
IS&T offers cost-effective managed FileMaker hosting for departments, labs, and centers through its Managed Servers service. IS&T strongly recommends using IS&T-managed servers for your FileMaker hosting needs at MIT, particularly for those without server administration skills or resources.
If you provide FileMaker Services to other customers, and you need more than 25 servers, this is for you. Once you are in the program you pay only for the average daily active Otto servers. You get access to a special support channel for Tier 2 support.
You or members of your team get to work with one of our Otto Certified Engineers over a Zoom session (up to 90 minutes). Before the session, we will ask you to fill out a brief survey to gather all the necessary information. During the session, we will work with you to (a) install and configure up Otto on two servers that you control, and (b) perform a sample migration between the two servers.
There are two Filemaker servers at HSLC. The Filemaker V10 server is filemaker.hslc.wisc.edu and the new Filemaker V13 server is filemaker13.hslc.wisc.edu. This document describes how to access a database hosted on one of the Filemaker servers. You must know on which server your database resides and you must have the appropriate Filemaker client. You can have both versions of Filemaker installed but the client version must be compatible with the server version for your database.
The real-time performance stats are a nice quick way to see the last 3 minutes of server performance and appears to be fairly responsive when switching between the 4 tabs. Knowing when the last backup was, is good information to know at a glance. If you utilize Perform script on server often, you'll find the inclusion of a counter to show how many are running against your maximum value you have set. I have found this to be a very useful piece of information. Likewise, knowing how much disk space is used by the database is a nice feature for those who monitor a server remotely, rather than needing to RDP into the desktop of the computer to get this information from the operating system.
The next tab is the connectors tab. This tab isolates the different methods you can interact with Filemaker server. You enable Web Direct here, Web & Server plugins, ODBC/JDBC & the new Filemaker API.

This article briefly describes our original radiological reporting system. This system was developed with the widely used database software FileMakerPro (ver 5.5). The reporting system can obtain information about patients and examinations from a radiology information system(RIS) by the Open DataBase Connectivity(ODBC) technique. By clicking the button on the reporting system, the corresponding DICOM images can be displayed on a picture archiving and communication system(PACS) workstation monitor. Reference images in JPEG format can be easily moved from PACS to the reporting system. Reports produced by the reporting system are distributed to the hospital information system(H
