We've been having issues with our CF2016 setup (prod environment) and I want to try and replicate it on my local.

 

Is there a way I can export the prod settings and then import it to my local instance? perhaps it's as easy as copy 1 file from server to the other?

 

Thanks!

I'm going to presume you don't mean your application code, but instead your admin settings. In that case, no, there is no one file, but several. And you shouldn't just copy them from one machine to another. Instead, what you want to use is the coldfusion archive or car file mechanism.

 

See the cf admin, packaging and deployment section. Then when you try to use the car feature, be sure to enable pop-ups in your browser. For more, look up docs on using the car feature, to first export out some or all admin settings to a car file, then to import that into the other cf instance.

 

Let us know how it goes.
