Hi all. I'm a new employee at a company whose developers installed CF2018 awhile ago, and I'm trying to install my development CF2018 to match theirs. Unfortunately, they don't remember whether they installed using the Development Profile, the Production Profile, or the Production Profile + Secure Profile. Since I'm seeing notes on the Web that this option cannot be changed once installation is complete, I want to determine what they originally selected. Is there a setting in their cf administrators (or elsewhere) that they could check to find out?

I'm not sure why you want to do this. If you're setting up a development environment, you should use the development profile. The other profiles will disable useful development features. Use the other profiles as appropriate in production. That said, CF creates an install log which is located in the root directory, and I'm pretty sure it'll list that information. Or, they could poke around in their CF Administrator and see whether they can add IP addresses for debugging purposes, etc. The log ...

Thank you, Dave_Watts. Development Profile would have been my choice, but a coworker mentioned I should take the default, and I thought I noticed the default being something other than Development. That makes sense, though. I looked for an installation log file in the root and many other locations but could not locate one. Will you please tell me the name of the file?

On my Windows desktop, I have CF 2018 installed in C:\ColdFusion2018, and directly in there I have this file:

Dave_Watts... Yes, I found it. I'm not sure why I didn't see it before. My apologies. Inside that, there is indeed a reference to:

 

ColdFusion Server Profile:
Development Profile

 

Thank you for your help!
