About FileMaker Server
About FileMaker Server
FileMaker® Server is fast, reliable server software for safely sharing FileMaker information among business teams on iOS, desktop, and the web. FileMaker Server is a dedicated database server that opens FileMaker Pro files, makes them available to clients on your network, and publishes FileMaker data in web pages or to other applications.
FileMaker Server Admin Console
FileMaker Server Admin Console is a web application that lets you easily configure and administer FileMaker Server, work with and monitor hosted databases, manage connected clients, manage web publishing for hosted databases, and track statistical information.
You can run Admin Console on the same machine where FileMaker Server is running or on almost any Windows or macOS machine that has network access to FileMaker Server. See Starting Admin Console.
Note  If you are a group administrator, your server administrator must configure your administrator group to allow you to do database administration tasks. Group administrators are not allowed to configure FileMaker Server or perform other server administration tasks described in many of the topics in this online Help system. A note at the beginning of each topic indicates which tasks group administrators are allowed to do when the server administrator selects the appropriate privilege for the group. For more information, contact your server administrator.
