Error 404 accessing Administrator after installing CF10 with IIS 7.5

Nov 16, 2012 12:24 PM

Tags: #error #windows #iis #cf10 #coldfusion10 #coldfusion_10

I installed ColdFusion 10 on Windows 7 Ultimate with IIS already running. Everything seemed fine except when it tried to launch the adminstrator page on completion.  I get an Error 404.  I have tried running the IISConnector.bat file and no joy.

 

Any ideas?  HELP.

    This is not a "support option", it's a community-populated forum upon which people volunteer their time. Also, did it occur to you that you asked your question on what would be the weekend for a lot of people?

     

    If you want support and you have a specific timeframe in mind within which you get said support, then engage someone to provide support for you. I'm sure Charlie Arehart could help you (although I think he more watches the server admin forum, which is where this question belongs). His rates are reasonable, and he really knows his stuff.

     

    If you want free support, then as here or on http://serverfault.com/ (although the CF activity there is not great, TBH).

     

    What you could also do is google. You're not the first person to experience what you're seeing, I think.

     

    I personally have not had a problem with CF10 and IIS 7.5. My experience with IIS is minimal, but the one time I have tried to get it working, it worked fine. I'm not showing off or suggesting "it should just work", but the thing is I've never had to troubleshoot it, so I don't know what the problem might be. I will research issues I don't know about if it relates to CFML, but server admin stuff bores me sh!tless, so unless I already know the answer, I cannot help a person.  You fall into this category.

     

    That said: one thing I do know is that CF10 and IIS don't play nicely with each other in some heavy-load environments. So I would tread carefully down that particular avenue, if I was you. Ref: http://blogs.coldfusion.com/post.cfm/coldfusion-10-update-4-is-now-ava ilable (the comments).

     

    On a final etiquette sort of note: telling people who are community volunteers that they are not helping you fast enough is not a great way to engender the desire to help you, btw. That might be something to bear in mind.

    IISConnector? You should instead run C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\runtime\bin\wsconfig.exe and "Add" IIS according to the documentation on configuring webservers for ColdFusion 10.

    Is it just CFAdmin that you can't access, or does it not server up CFML pages @ all? What about if you just use the inbuilt web server (which will probably still be listening on port 8500, even if you specified IIS during install)? Obviously this is no permanent solution, but it will help get an idea of how wrong things are.

     

    As for Adobe ColdFusion support: yeah, it's shocking, from what I understand.

     

    You actually are better off asking here, but you need to be patient.  People only answer stuff in their spare time.

    Just browse to http://localhost:8500/CFIDE/administrator (case-sensitive), and see what you get.  JRun used to always install it / activate it even if you selected another web server during install; I've not tested on CF10 though, but imagine it'll still be the same.

     

    Have you tried running Remove_ALL_connectors.bat ([cfusion]/runtime/bin dir), and then trying with WSConfig again?  NB: caveat emptor on that advice: I'm just running off the things I'd try if I had your problem... I've no idea if this'll help.

    Just get "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage'.

    Open the Administror page in Firefox, where you can use tools like Firebug to study the response.
