Syncing Checklist: steps 4 & 5, Server Settings

Updated Mar 31, 2021

You now need to enter your server address, make sure the Data API is on, and confirm your security settings.

Step 4: If you have not yet turned on the Data API in your FileMaker server, please do so now following the steps in this lesson.

Step 5: Enter your server address in the box. If you have a remote server, you should enter the url without the http part. So if your server url is https://myfilemakerserver.com then you would enter myfilemakerserver.com in the box. If you are using localhost, you can enter the ip address of your local host here. You will find it on the dashboard of your local server installation.

The final consideration is to SSL or not to SSL, which is addressed in the next lesson.
