[FX.php List] Problem with web publishing on a FM Server 13 machine

Hi Bob,

That malformed XML error has me wondering if perhaps the server is returning an HTML error page rather than XML (this has happened to me before.)  As both FAP and FX.php actually communicate via XML, try hitting the FIleMaker server with something like the following, and let us know what you get:


The first URL should use the schema returned by the FMPro7 (or greater) data type, while the second  will be the XML as returned by FAP or the FMAlt data type under FX.  Let me know what you see.
