How to install Coldfusion 9 with IIS 6

Posted 22 May 2011 - 12:57 PM


I have a trouble in installing ColdFusion 9 on Window 2003 server where IIS 6 is running.
2 other sites which were written in PHP are running on the same server.
And, I want to install ColdFusion and make my site written in ColdFusion run sharing this IIS 6.
When I tried to open CFIDE/Administrator/index.cfm after installation, it never opened. Yes, something is definitely wrong, but I don't know where.
I put the web-pages into D:\myroot\mysite.
What did I wrong during the installation?
Any advices would be appreciated.
Thank you!

There's all kinds of things you could have done wrong. That said, my local admin login for CF9 is "CFIDE/administrator/enter.cfm" and not index.cfm

Try that and see what you get. Also, try it using something other than IE. IE has a tendency to intercept IIS error code messages and replace them with some generic crap that doesn't tell you anything about the error.

By default when you install ColdFusion on IIS, it only sets the /cfide virtual directory on the Default Site. I am assuming you are going to http://yourwebsite/c.../administrator. Instead try going to http://server/cfide/administrator where server is the name of the serveror the IP of the server.

Optionally you can setup a virtual directory on your site for the cfide directory. To do so, go to your site on IIS and right click on it and click create a new virtual directory. Call the virtual directory /cfide and point it to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\cfide (the default directory for cfide).
