ftptail (Egbert A. Friedrich)
  This perl script allows you to tail an FileMaker Server log over FTP. Just open the terminal and type: perl ftptail -s 5 -n 30 -f --password-file=pw.txt login@filemakerserver.com:21/logs/access.log where the password is stored inside the pw.txt file, the file is tailed with a 5 second refresh and shows the last 30 lines. If you add " > access.log" you are piping the reult to a local log, effectively replicating the server log. Open this in a good text editor like BBEdit and you have a live updating and searchable log.

Elegance in WebDirect
  Elegance in WebDirect dotFMP Files 2019.zip (Jonn Howell)
  I have uploaded the following files: • The presentation (in PDF) for the session: "Elegance in WebDirect" • 3 PHP files for dynamic redirect from WebDirect, in the same tab • A freshly built example file in FileMaker Pro Advanced 17, for dynamic redirect from WebDirect, suing these PHP files NOTE: I am not yet fluent in cURL, and thus the option that was discussed is not working yet: to be able to use the function "Insert from URL", instead of using a variable driven web viewer, for caching the session variable, to manage dynamic redirect. This is the option shown on the second layout of the demo file. - If anyone can solve this for me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for everyone's wonderful presence at this event!
