Change the location of hosted files
If you want to change the location of your data files you must first close files using the admin console. For detailed instructions on managing hosted files watch the video in this article: FileMaker Server File Upload.
In addition to closing all the files you must also remove them using actions menu as explained in the previous article.
Once the files are removed you can configure the database server to host the files in a new location, you will then need to upload the files to the new location using the Upload Assistant as explained in the previous article. The removed files can be found here:
- Windows (32-bit): [drive]:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Databases\Removed_by_FMS\Removed\
- Windows (64-bit): [drive]:\Program Files (x86)\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Data\Databases\Removed_by_FMS\Removed\
- Mac OS: /Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Databases/Removed_by_FMS/Removed/
