Hi,

I am training for the post of ColdFusion administrator, my mentor told me that if you enter wrong password in the ColdFusion admin page (https://localhost/cfide/administrator)  for three times it will lock you out. we are using ColdFusion 11.

Can you please clarify me regarding this

Thanks,

Sai Santhosh

Hi Sai,

It will not lock your ColdFusion Administrator even if you enter your password wrong more than 3 times.

This is not the default behavior for CF 11, or any other version as far as I know. But the CF Administrator is a web application just like any other, and you can use your web server to restrict access to individual web applications by using other forms of authentication, like Windows authentication or Basic authentication or whatever. It appears that you're going through your external web server as it's on TCP/443 instead of TCP/8500 (the default port for the built-in web server), so you may have to find out what form of authentication you're using outside of CF's own form authentication.
