The Database Server > Server Plug-Ins tab allows you to enable FileMaker Server to use external function plug-ins with hosted FileMaker Pro databases that are designed to use server-side plug-ins. See Managing plug-ins.
The FileMaker Server component that runs plug-ins is called the FileMaker Script Engine (FMSE).
To enable the FileMaker Server plug-ins settings:

2. Select Enable FileMaker Script Engine (FMSE) to use plug-ins to allow FileMaker Server to use plug-ins.
3. Select Allow Install Plug-In File script step to install, update, and load Server plug-ins to allow the Install Plug-In File script step to update the plug-in files located in the Server extensions folder. See Folders for server-side plug-in files.
4. The list shows the plug-ins that are in the plug-in folder. Select Enabled for each plug-in that you want to execute in the FileMaker Script Engine.
