I have had to reinstall CF9 on windows 7 but lost IIS connect. After several trials, decided to use the built-in server for my development. Installed fine and get the administrator page under port 8500. I'd like to put that in my inetpub/wwwroot/ path and have access to CF sites via localhost at that inetpub/wwwroot location.
CF doc says can do this by changing the jrun-web.xml file under "virtual-mapping". I moved CFIDE to inetpub/wwwroot/ path
I tried it with:
but gets 404 error for http://127.0.0.1:8500/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm
Would like to be able to keep everything where I have it in the inetpub/wwwroot folder rather than move all files to the CF9/wwwroot/ directory.
I'm guessing I have not changed the xml with the proper mapping.
Appreciate any help or advice.
By default, you will already have a virtual mapping for /CFIDE that resolves to wherever CF puts the directory. Changing the location of the root directory won't affect that existing virtual mapping.

Thanks, but don't think I'm understanding:
CF put CFIDE in the CF9/wwwroot/ directory. Which I can access properly at: http://127.0.0.1:8500/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm
Currently, all my CF sites are in C:Inetpub/wwwroot/ I was hoping I could keep them there and access as in the past with IIS (but now with port) at say: http://localhost:8500/mySite/index.cfm can I do that without moving all the CF sites to CF9/wwwroot/? From the docs article, looks like should be able. Maybe I'm missing something in interpreting this and your reply.Keith
