I am new to coldfusion and need some "schooling" on this matter. I installed Coldfusion2016 as a .war file (cfusion.war, a JEE install option) in the webapps folder in apache tomcat 9.x directory. It created a cfusion folder and under the cfusion folder I have: cf_scripts, CFIDE, META-INF, WEB-INF folder and a crossdomain.xml file. I can access the administrator file, or go the administrator website of coldfusion, using "localhost/cfusion/CFIDE/administrator"
My question is when I want to create a coldfusion project or put a coldfusion file to run in the server, where do i put the files. Do I put it in the apache tomcat webapps folder, cfusion directory or CFIDE directory folder? Which is my root folder where I should be placing my coldfusion stuff? Where is the webapps folder for the coldfusion2016 install in apache tomcat server?
In that configuration, your CF files would be placed right in the /cfusion folder. This is different from a "normal" CF install, so you will see lots of path-related differences in documentation and samples.
