Yes I was aware of that - I didn't mention in my post that I have another Mac - a MacBook Pro that has Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion on it, and I'd learned of the disappearance of the Web Sharing "button" when it was released and I installed it there.

I use the MacBook Pro as a test for other things like what version of PHP Apple is distributing, and whether it now has things like the GD Library (it does) and FreeType and other needed things (it does - it's slowly getting better over the years.

I haven't ever installed FileMaker Server on that machine, but with this upgrade I might do it there first to straighten out the things Troy has mentioned before breaking - I mean upgrading - the Mac Pro.

Actually I don't remember exactly what I did, but the MacBook Pro computer now starts up automatically every time I restart it with WebSharing turned on. I guess I'll have to remember what I did to that one to have it work on the MacPro once that is upgraded. It probably was what is written here

sudo apachectl start
sudo apachectl stop
sudo apachectl restart

are the commands.
