Filemaker Server 8 can't open file

I have a file in the default folder for hosting databases in Server 8. I can connect to the server and see the file and it is marked "closed". When I select the option to open it the status changes from "closed" to "checking" then back to "closed" with no explanation. I just want to host the file. Help.

Hi Jermia,
a bit late for the answer, but maybe it can help others...

This usually means the file has not been closed properly following a hard shutdown of the server (power outage?). It could be that the file needs to be recovered, or simply checked by Filemaker.
In both cases, you need to open the file with the client version of Filemaker Pro 8, then close it again, and the Server should happily open it thereafter. Here, we keep a copy of Filemaker client on the server for these rare occasions.

When i start my Cybercafe PRO Server it gives an error messge " Port: 15346 appears to be blocked. Can somebody help me how i can open this port?


1. Find your host file located in your windows folder.

WinXP = C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc\hosts

if you cant find the host file, please go to your folder options and UNTICK "hide protected operating system files"


2. After locating the hosts file, right click it, properties, UNTICK read only if it is read only to make sure we can edit it.

- open the host file with notepad and write like this:
127.0.0.1 sync.oneroof.com
127.0.0.1 reports.oneroof.com

- after done, save it/overwrite.

3. Please restart your PC and try your CCP Server again.

I am not able to connect to the google sites from my system. I am able to browse all other sites. What should i do?


If you are using windows xp:-

Click Start, click Run, type %systemroot% \system32\drivers\etc, and then click OK.
  1. Rename the hosts file to hosts.bak.
  2. Create the new default hosts file. To do this, follow these steps:
  3. Right-click an open space in the %WinDir%\system32\drivers\etc folder, point to New, click Text Document, type hosts, and then press ENTER.
  4. Click Yes to confirm that the file name extension will not be txt.
  5. Open the new created hosts file in a text editor, for example, in the Notepad.
  6. Copy the following text to the file:
For Windows XP or Windows Server 2003

# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp. # # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows. # # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name. # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one # space. # # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol. # # For example: # # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host 127.0.0.1 localhost

I am getting error codes 6129,0 and 6073, 816 on my quickbooks 2008. What can I do to open the company?


This error can occur when:
  • Data is converted or restored over a network.
  • Several computers are acting as host for the QuickBooks data file.
  • QuickBooks is unable to communicate with the server.
  • There is data damage in your company file.

If the error occurred when you were restoring a company file from a backup or updating a company file to a newer version of QuickBooks over a network:
  1. Copy the backup file (.qbb file extension) or the company file you want to update (.qbw file extension) to a local hard drive.
  2. Restore the backup or update the company file.
  3. Copy the restored or updated company file back to its original location.

If the error occurred when you were trying to open and use a company file:
  1. Update QuickBooks to the most current release on all computers that open the company file.
  2. Close QuickBooks on all the computers with access to this company file.
  3. On the computer you select to host the company file, switch to single-user mode, and then back to multi-user mode:
    1. Open QuickBooks and open the company file.
    2. Choose File > Switch to Single-user Mode.
    3. Choose File > Utilities > Stop Hosting Multi-User Access.
    4. Choose File > Switch to Multi-user Mode.
    5. Choose File > Close Company to close the company file.
  4. On all other computers that will use the company file, stop hosting multi-user access :
    1. Press and hold Ctrl while you open the QuickBooks program and continue pressing Ctrl until QuickBooks opens completely. This opens QuickBooks without opening a company file.
    2. Choose File > Utilities >Stop Hosting Multi-User Access. If that option doesn't appear, the computer is not hosting and no further action is necessary.
    3. Repeat steps 4.a and 4.b for each computer other than the host computer.
  5. Configure the QuickBooks server for multi-user access:
    1. Click the Windows Start button and choose All Programs > QuickBooks > QuickBooks Database Server Manager.
    2. Click the Scan Folders tab.
    3. Click the Add Folder button, select the folder that contains your QuickBooks company file, and click OK. Repeat this step if necessary to add additional company file folders.
    4. Click the Scan button to begin scanning. After the scan is finished, the company files in the scanned folders are configured for multi-user access.
  6. Open the company file in QuickBooks. If you receive the same error message, refer to Settings required for firewalls to make sure your firewall is properly configured to allow QuickBooks access to your company file.
  7. Open the company file in QuickBooks. If you receive the same error message, open a different company file or a sample company file located in one of the folders you scanned with the Database Server Manager.
    • If no company file will open, reboot the host computer and try again.
    • If other company files open without error, the company file generating the error message may be damaged. For more information refer to Verifying and rebuilding QuickBooks company data.

What is run time error '-2147467259(80004005)' how i solved it rewati nadan


"The Microsoft Jet Database Engine cannot open the file '(unknown)'"There are several causes for this error message:
  • The account that Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) is using (which is usually IUSR) does not have the correct Windows NT permissions for a file-based database or for the folder that contains the file.
  • The file and the data source name are marked as Exclusive.
  • Another process or user has the Access database open.
  • The error may be caused by a delegation issue. Check the authentication method (Basic versus NTLM), if any. If the connection string uses the Universal Naming Convention (UNC), try to use Basic authentication or an absolute path such as C:\Mydata\Data.mdb. This problem can occur even if the UNC points to a resource that is local to the IIS computer.
  • This error may also occur when you access a local Microsoft Access database that is linked to a table where the table is in an Access database on a network server.
Resolution
  • Check the permissions on the file and the folder. Make sure that you have the ability to create and/or destroy any temporary files. Temporary files are usually created in the same folder as the database, but the file may also be created in other folders such as the WINNT folder. For additional information about how to identify which folder does not have the correct permissions and how to configure temporary files, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 253604 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/253604/ ) Microsoft Access 97 database connectivity fails in Active Server Pages If you use a network path to the database (UNC or mapped drive), check the permissions on the share, the file, and the folder.
  • Verify that the file and the data source name (DSN) are not marked as Exclusive.
  • The "other user" may be Microsoft Visual InterDev. Close any Visual InterDev projects that contain a data connection to the database.
  • Simplify. Use a System DSN that uses a local drive letter. If necessary, move the database to the local drive to test.
  • Follow the instructions in the following article to work around this problem: 189408 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/189408/ ) FIX: ASP fails to access network files under IIS 4.0 and IIS 5.0

How to set a folder with small program to run on linux+apache


Dear Rajiv

First make sure that your Apache server is running properly.
For this type http://localhost and see the result.

If you want to test PHP you can create a php test file by yourself.

Goto the www folder in apache director. create a file , name it anything.php. Edit the file and simply write "phpinfo()" without quotes . check the output.

It means that your apache server is fully capable of PHP scripting.
