Custom Web Publishing

FileMaker PHP API

Custom web publishing (CWP) is a technology for interacting via a standard web page with your FileMaker database. The FileMaker PHP API is the primary technology for publishing FileMaker data to web sites, but will require some understanding of html and php. However performance is very good and it does not put much load on our servers so will keep your hosting costs down.

To build a site you will need to develop your database and then host it on one of our servers. You will then need to write the php and install it on a web server and configure it to point to your database.
