I’ve noticed this with FileMaker Server Advanced 12 - in the Admin Console it shows that there is one connection to a database, and it can ONLY be a web publishing connection since I know that no one is connected by FileMaker Pro. I’m almost ashamed to say I’m still using the FMWebSchool BlackBelt for my sites which uses FX.php (but hey, it works for me still).

But apart from showing that there is a connection, I’ve noticed when attempting to Close such a database (so I can Remove it and upload a new version) that the Admin Console reports that there is a user connected and I need to send a message to the user asking them to close the database.
