Trouble installing CF10 / IIS7

Dec 28, 2012 8:15 AM

Tags: #cf10 #iis7

I have a new Windows 7 Ultimate x 64 dev machine. I installed IIS with the .NET Extensibility, ASP.NET, CGI, ISAPI Extensions, and ISAPI Filters checked. Then installed CF10 64 bit and ran the Webserver Configuration Tool telling it to install All websites and allow 32 bit. I ran the mandatory manual update, then the automatic ones.


I create an index.cfm in the default website and can hit it via localhost/index.cfm. Things seem good. I then create a folder called "greg" and an index.cfm in there. I can hit it via localhost/greg/index.cfm. I have a domain pointed to my location and forwarded port 80 to this server. From outside I can hit and I get the index.cfm GREAT! But if I specifically go to I get a 404 error. I CAN however hit the index.html in that dir like this


What does this mean?

    OK. A similar problem was discussed in this thread on IIS 7.5. What I gather from there is that someone solved the problem by mapping a virtual directory named "jakarta" to {CFUSION INSTALLATION}\config\wsconfig\{instance_id}, where the instance ID is an integer like 1, or 2, etc.

    Glad to hear! Please kindly mark the question as answered. I say this with modesty. There is something bigger at stake. As you can imagine, a solution like this one will certainly help someone else to in future. Let's then make it easier to find. Thanks.
