Chapter 25. FileMaker Server > Running FileMaker Server

Running FileMaker Server

Installing FileMaker Server installs two separate components, both of which run as services: FileMaker Server and the FileMaker Server Helper. These appear as two separate services (Windows) or processes (Mac OS). FileMaker Server does not function correctly without the FileMaker Server Helper service also running.

Starting and Stopping FileMaker Server

When you install FileMaker Server, you can choose whether to have these services start automatically (in which case they are started every time the server itself starts up) or manually (in which case you need to start the services by hand). On Windows you can start and stop the services with the tools available in the Services console. On the Mac OS, it's a bit trickier.
