Here is a Classic from
FileMaker, Inc. has just released the FileMaker 17 platform. While we are excited about some of the new great features, the FileMaker 17 Server now features a new web admin console, that looks like the FileMaker Cloud Admin Console.
While the web console is nice looking, it lacks several features, that can be vitale in order to manage your FileMaker server.
Most features are not completely gone, but now you will need to use Command Line commands or use the new Admin REST API. For many Server admins, this new way of managing FileMaker Server, might be difficult to master all these interfaces.
In order to help our colleagues, we built this tool, that combines all the interfaces you will need in order to manage your FileMaker Server 17.
When you install FileMaker Server 17, you will need to install a Custom SSL Certificate. Unfortunately, the web admin console will no longer have a feature to generate a Certificate Signing Request, which you need in order to purchase your custom SSL certificate. In order to do so, you will need to do this via CLI commands.
The FMS 17 Missing Admin Tool has a feature to generate this command, so the process will be easier.
We also include a lot of information and links to videos, we’ve done with Richard Carlton in the past, in order to help you through this process.
The tool is completely free and completely unlocked, so you can dig in and learn from the code.
