Web Publishing with FileMaker
Create data-driven websites with ease.
Instant Web Publishing
Securely publish your databases to the web in a couple of clicks. Create registration sites, customer feedback forms, service requests, surveys and more.
No additional software is required—with compatible web browser software and access to the Internet, web users you authorize can connect to your database to view, edit, sort, or search records.
FileMaker Pro supports up to five simultaneous web users. If you need to support and share databases with larger groups of people over the web, FileMaker Server Advanced supports up to 20x as many web users as FileMaker Pro.
Custom Web Publishing
- Integrate your database with another website
- Determine how users interact with data
- Control how data displays in web browsers
There are two custom web publishing technologies in FileMaker Server: PHP and XML.
Custom Web Publishing with PHP
If you want to build custom, data-driven websites,
FileMaker Server has integrated support for PHP. Publish information to the web, capture web data or create new solutions combining a web-based front-end with a rich, FileMaker Pro back-end.
Publish FileMaker data to a PHP web application using the FileMaker Application Programming Interface (API) that performs the same kind of functions you already have in FileMaker Pro.
Custom Web Publishing with XML
Extensible Markup Language (XML) is the standard language for structured data interchange. Many organizations use XML to transfer product information, transactions, inventory data, and other business data. FileMaker Custom Web Publishing with XML allows you to exchange FileMaker data with other websites and applications. With XML you can leverage the structure of FileMaker Pro to access layouts, portals, and scripts. In addition, you can access all the data that exists on a particular layout, regardless of what table it is in.
