Hi,

I always preface with I am not a programmer.  🙂

I just moved my server.  The new server is Windows 2019 with CF 2021.

On the new and old server CF was installed on the E drive.

On the old site, I accessed the CF Administrator on the web through https://My.Site.org/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm.  That doesn't work with the new server.

I can access it while directly on the server at http://127.0.0.1:8500/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm

The old server was in place for a long time, I tried searching and cannot find out how I was able to access the old server through my PCs browser while not directly on the server.

Suggestions?

 

Thank you!

Hi,

 

This was removed as part of CF2016 release. We can still configure the CF Admin from webserver the way you used to have in old CF server.

 

Launch IIS Manager>Select Site and right click>Select Add virtual directory and click Ok

Alias as "CFIDE"

Physical Path = \ColdFusion2021\cfusion\wwwroot\CFIDE    // Select Directory based on the driver it is installed.

Go to ColdFusion2021\config\wsconfig\{magic folder}. 

Take the backup of uriworkermap.properties. Open this file and uncomment C

Take the backup of uriworkermap.properties. Open this file and uncomment CFIDE by removing the "!". Save the file and restart IIS.

Then try to access using https://My.Site.org/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm

Hope this helps.
