Usually a typo in the name of the database you're trying to access. In some old versions you should try taking the .fp5 out or putting it in.

This error can also be caused when the web security database is being used, but the file you are accesing is not listed in the WSDB.

If you are using the Web Companion, check to make sure it is enabled on the database file in question. If the file is hosted with FileMaker Server, be sure to do this when the file is not being hosted (or it won't persist).

This seems rather obvious, but it can cause this error.
