CF10 Sites Produce 500 Error, CFAdmin Runs Fine

Jan 10, 2014 7:07 AM

(This is a partial repeat of a posting I added this morning to an old thread; reposting here in a new thread as I am not sure the old one will be seen by anyone)

 

Through fits and starts, we have CF10 running on CF10 Standard on a VPS with Windows 2012 64 bit and IIS 8.0.  I did install the IIS6 options too, as well as the ASAPI and ASP options.  CFAdmin was installed with the "all sites" option.   At this point, I can freely uninstall/re-install CF if need be as all sites are down anyway, unfortunately.

 

Every site gives me a 500 error but I CAN get the CF Administrator up and it runs and displays pages, updates, etc just fine. 

 

Another thread I found here in the forums concentrated on the Application pools. I checked the application pools and they all say 32bit=true, so for one site I went through and set them all to false, but that did not fix the problem. Was I supposed to recycle IIS or CF before I tried to render the page again?

 

For each site, there are 4 application pool listings, one for v2.0 (Classic), v2.0 (Integrated), v4.0 (Classic), and v4.0 (Integrated). 

 

All sites are showing the CFIDE and Jakarta virtual directories.  The .cfm and .cfc MIME's look like they are set correctly at the top level of all web sites. DNS has been checked and the sites can be pinged successfully.

 

I'm out of ideas.

 

Thank you for any help you can provide!

RLS

    Hi RLS,

     

    Could you please check if you are able to get the website running from ColdFusion's internal port 8500. in case, that is disabled, please enable it by uncommenting --C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\runtime\conf -- Server.xml

     

    <!-- internal webserver start -->

        <Connector executor="tomcatThreadPool" maxThreads="50"

                   port="8501" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol"

                   connectionTimeout="20000"

                   redirectPort="8445" />

        <!-- internal webserver end -->

     

    Please try to run your web applciation from web root of CF and compare the results

     

    If this is a development enviornment you can enable the debugging mode to get the details on the error.

     

    Thanks,

    Anjaneai

    I am not sure how to remove it. As the entry type is inherited, try to delete it from the server level or click on move tomcat up in the order (using View Ordered List).

    As you configure CF with Webserver say IIS using Web Server Configuration tool, you can run as such tool for Open BD and remove the connector which might remove this.

    If this is not production and there is no require for the OpenBD isapi_redirect dll then you can go ahead and take a backup of web.config and remove it. You can also check the ApplicationHost.config (C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config) for the OpenBD enteries.

    It is always recommended to take a back up of all those files who you decide to update

     

     

    Thanks

    Is it a production server or a dev box? If it is dev box, remove the connector and just configure one of your existing (non-working) site with CF 10 and then test the behavior.

    you can check the handlers that is there any handler for OpenBD in the handler mappings or not though I am not sure that it does add the handlers or not

     

    Also, if you think that this Open BD is really pulling up your hair then you can take the backup of webroot (your websites)and then reconfigure IIS. This way it will remove the OpenBD as well but remove the CF 10 connector first before removing the connector.

     

    Thanks

    You need not to Install Management tools with CF 10 however this might not be the issue here.

     

    If it is not a production then set the log level to debug in the isapi_redirect.properties file present in the cfroot\config\wsconfig\1\ directory. However, before doing so rename the isapi_redirect.log in the same location as isapi_redirect.log_old so that there will be  new enteries in isapi_redirect.log when you access your website.

    Not sure about redirection. That is something set up within IIS. Check the web.config for the same

    That sounds great You can change the log level to info now in the isapi_redirect.properties

     

    Another thing whenever you access your application and page takes too much time to load or page gives you some standard error like 500, first of all check the application pool of the application/website whether it is running. As Application pool is responsible for providing resources for your application. Also, whenever new website starts working and old are not, just change the app pool of old site to the new app pool and if you try the same at your end now that will also work.

     

    Have a great day ahead

     

    Thanks
