Upload your files to your fmcloud.fm FileMaker Server

Modified on Fri, 27 Nov 2020 at 06:03 PM


To upload your FileMaker files to your fmcloud.fm server, please follow these steps.


  1. First, ensure your files are correctly secured.
  2. If your files were previously hosted on a server, the most efficient procedure is to download these files from the administration console of your old server to your computer. The advantage is that any container folders will automatically be well positioned for uploading, which is not the case if you use a backup. The procedure is explained here.
  3. Make sure that any external containers are visible when you open the file locally. If they are, the FileMaker Pro upload process will handle them automatically.
  4. You can now upload your files. This should be done with FileMaker Pro, from menu File/Sharing/Upload to Host...
  5. In the Upload to Host dialog.
    1. If you haven't yet done so, add a host by clicking the + icon
    2. Enter your server address (yourSubdomain.fmcloud.fm)
    3. Click Save
    4. On the right, enter your credentials and click on Sign In
  6. In the Next (final) dialog
    1. At the top of the window, click on Change and choose the FMS_DB directory (you can create subdirectories there if you wish).
    2. By clicking the Browse button, you can select one or more files. If there are Container folders next to their corresponding FilleMaker file, they will be uploaded automatically.
    3. Click Upload
    4. Once the upload completed, and option allows you to open the files directly in FileMaker Pro.
