[FX.php List] Web traffic versus native FileMaker use

Hey Joel,

No PHP scripts calling FileMaker scripts.

Since writing the original post...only minutes ago....my thinking has 
matured.  There is stuff going on in the  native solution (not under 
my control) that will continue to go on. I have now decided to 
isolate the web solution from it rather than attempt to fix the other 

So, the question now boils down to practical ways to isolate a web 
solution from a 2 machine deployment, where:
	Machine1 = FMSserver 10 with MainDB and WebDB
	Machine2 = FMSserver 10 Web Engine, serving WebDB

This one just ocurred to me: Turn Machine 2 into a single machine 
deployment Web Publishing machine running the WEBDB. This will 
probably mean purchasing another copy of FMServer.

Short of doing this, I was wondering if simply adding a new hard 
drive for the WebDB into machine 1 would be of any benefit.

That's where I am right now.
