[FX.php List] PHP error log tracking using PID?

Thanks, Steve.

So the mechanics exist. My question goes to whether this is a valid request in the FileMaker Web Publishing environment. In this case, an existing web publishing system on OS X is being moved to Windows and will be managed by their IT staff. This is their first exposure to FMS, and they have a 
MySQL  mindset. I've already had to deliver the bad news on several other requests where FMS just doesn't do the things that MySQL does. 

Is this PID request another one of the practices common in MySQL that just isn't done in FMS?

In the file modjk.conf (in a directory something like /Library/FileMaker Server/Admin/admin-helper/WEB-INF/conf/mod_jk.conf (on OS X v11 anyway) you'll see settings for JkFmLogFile and JkFmLogLevel. Make sure the log is set to a valid path, and increase the LogLevel to get more data going into the log (be aware that depending on the logging level and the demand on the server, this log and get very big, very quickly, so only increase the logging level for specific purposes, over short periods of time
