Need a host for Cold Fusion 6.1 MX

Posted 17 August 2011 - 01:53 PM

Hello I have about ten sites, none very large which we have hosted on our own server since 2004. However as we had reduced the number of sites to only about ten we no longer need a dedicated server so Ild like to move the sites to a new host just for those sites

The sites are running Cold Fusion 6.1 MX on LInux

Because the sites are mostly built in an old version Ild prefer to find a new host for these with someone who can host on that version of CF running on Linux as then it should be a simple transfer

Can any one sugest any company or business who can do this. I am finding that whilst there is lots of hosts for Cold Fusion none I can find have an early version running CF6.1 MX on Linus and am keen to find an individual or hosting company who we can pay to host these with and appreciate any advice

Fairlands, welcome to DIC!

Unfortunately, you will have an incredibly difficult time finding anyone hosting a CF6.1 server on Linux for your sites. That version of the software is four major versions ago and nearing 10 years old. I won't tell you there's nobody offering it, in fact, a quick Google search brought back this site saying they offer hosting for "6.5" although I don't recall there being a 6.5 release. I could be wrong though. In any event, if 6.5 is for real it should be close enough to 6.1 to probably require few if any code changes to get your sites up and running.

Thing is this though: do your sites generate revenue? I ask because while you seem to have a concern about the CF version and not wanting to move from it, the bigger question when moving a site is usually the database. If the sites are running on 10 year old server software my first question was "what database and version is it using"? Fixing an older CF codebase to run on a newer server isn't usually too big a deal...doing the same thing for a database though can be.

If the sites are making money I'd recommend considering looking into upgrading both the server software (CF) and maybe the database as well.

Good luck!
