fmRESTor updated for FileMaker Server 18
We have updated our open-source PHP library for easy integration of PHP websites with FileMaker Data API to take advantage of the new features introduced in FIleMaker Server 18. fmRESTor is now also available via Composer.
We have a new product: LogMonitor
We have released a new open-source tool, useful for every server administrator. Specifically with FileMaker Server admins in mind, this tool lets you get notified about important messages appearing in logs without being spammed by unimportant notifications.

Perform Script On Server
The idea of being able to off-load time consuming tasks from FileMaker Pro to FileMaker Server is as old as the scripting abilities of FileMaker Pro, which were introduced with the FileMaker Pro 3 release. But it was the FileMaker Server 13 that finally made this idea easy to implement.
Debugging Scripts by Writing to Event.log
This is a fresh story of me spending hours trying to fix a technical issue and accidentally revealing a gold nugget. A few days ago one of my nightly server-side scripts stopped working without any apparent reason. But when I tried to run the script in FileMaker Pro it worked just fine. I really needed a way to debug the script on the server.
FileMaker PHP Error 7 (Running Out Of Memory) resolved
Yesterday I got so stuck with an issue that I wanted to send a question to a mailing list. But (un)fortunately I sent it from a wrong e-mail address so it did not reach the list. Then, before discovering that I used the wrong e-mail address I actually resolved the issue, so now I can share this for the case it can help someone.
