I am attempting to upgrade from CF11 to CF2016. I have been unable to configure IIS to work with 2016, I am getting "Error while instaconfiguring connector on IIS. Make sure you have administrator privilages" [sic]. I have full admin privileges on my machine and am running wsconfig as administrator. The CF11 version of wsconfig works just fine, unfortunately can't use that to configure my 2016 site. I tried someone's suggestion of reverting to parent, but to no avail. No idea where to go from here.
For the short term, I am using the built-in development server, but would really like to move over to in my environment IIS since the production server is using IIS. Any thoughts how I can move ahead?
Please remove the existing connector configurations from IIS using the below link and try again.
Also, please refer the below link for manual connector configuration:
I didn't have any existing connector configurations...it never would make one. But the instructions for making a manual connector was just what I needed. I hadn't run across that doc when I was trying to figure this out. Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I've got it worked out and am moving forward.
As an aside, I don't think I've ever left the connector creation up to chance, especially when using Apache.
