Hi, and welcome to the VTC tutorial on FileMaker Server. My name is Wim Decorte. In this tutorial you will get an in depth look at what FileMaker Server is and how you can configure it, plus also detailed information on how to put together the best possible deployment so that once you have all of FileMaker Server configured, it will keep on running with the best possible up time. An important section of this tutorial will be about strategies for troubleshooting when things go wrong. And to wrap things up for this tutorial we will talk about non FileMaker technology such as PHP, .NET, ODBC and other web based technologies that you can use to consume FileMaker data, all of that through either regular Filemaker Server or FileMaker Server Advanced. So let's set the stage for what we are going to do, for this tutorial we will be working with FileMaker Server Advanced 10 and running on server 2003 and OS 10.5. Keep in mind the FileMaker Server also runs on Windows 2008 and on OS 10.411 so if you're running on either of those two platforms there might be subtle differences in what you see and what tools are available but for the most part everything will be the same. If you want to follow along with this tutorial but don't have FileMaker Server you can go here to the FileMaker download section down to the trial software and download a 30 day working copy of FileMaker Server Advanced. This trial installation can always be updated with a real FileMaker Server key as long as the trial period has not expired so if I hasn't expired you will not need to uninstall FileMaker Server trial version. Whenever possible I will show both the Windows and the Mac version of FileMaker Server but since FileMaker Server 9 and also now in 10 all FileMaker Server related things pretty much look the same on both platforms. And when I say FileMaker Pro I mean the Desktop client FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Pro Advanced.
