CF11 repointing webroot in standalone installation with internal web server

I am testing my recent installation of CF11 as a side-by-side installatin with CF9.   I am currently just trying to get the web pages accessible so I can figure out what might not be functioning in these web pages and fix it.   I figured out that in order to change the default web root I need to change the server.xml file (located under runtime\conf\server.xml) and have it point to the new  directory.

I currently have something like this::

<Context path=”E/” docBase=”/website1_CF11”

WorkDir=”E:\website1_CF11”

Aliases=”/CFIDE=D:/ColdFusion11/cfusion/wwwroot/CFIDE, /WEB-INF=D:/ColdFusion11/cfusion/wwwroot/WEB-INF”>

</Context>

I have 3 other websites under E:\ that I need to point to though. If I copy and paste the above code so that I have 4 different copies of it, with each referencing the 4 different website locations, then CF doesn't turn on, so I'm missing something here. What?

I saw something about virtual directories, but as I understand it, the above is a virtual directory because it is using the alias . Tomcat has something similar to this in it's server.xml and it just has the same thing with the folder changed right after each other.  Maybe I didn't understand it fully.

Suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

OK, I've figured out my issue with the code.  User error with all the / \ when I entered the aliases  AND I need the CFIDE and WEB-INF in the aliases as well or CF Administrator won't work.  Hope this helps others as well.  Now I have more questions, but I'll ask them separately.   Thanks! Jennifer
