Hello Roderick

Thanks for the question! Unfortunately, the hosting server does NOT use File Maker Pro for the database backend when running Concrete 5. It uses MySQL as the database backend. If you have a database created with FMP, then I would suggest exporting the database into the MySQL database that is created when Concrete5 is installed. You would need to match the fields from your database to the Concrete5 database. There's more information from Concrete5 on this subject here.

I hope that helps to answer your question! If you're just asking if it's possible to use as the database backend for Concrete5, the answer is unfortunately "no", but as per above there is an option if you have data already created in a FMP database.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.
