I finally got my copy of CFBuilder 2, and I've been trying to get it set up for my projects. When editing code, I have a "Firefox" and "IE" tab at the bottom of the editor window, but when I click on either one (or if I click on the green "Run" button in the toolbar), I get the following message:
Server is not configured with the project.
Along with instructions about how to configure the server settings. However, when I do (project->properties->ColdFusion Server Settings), that box is completely blank, other than the "Restore Defaults" and "Apply" buttons.
Ok, somehow I managed to figure it out. I ended up with a double "http://" in the server path, so I nuked it and started over.
Now my problem is a 404 when I preview in my browser.
I have CF8 installed locally, running on localhost:8500. I have C:/ColdFusion8/wwwroot/ as my local path, and folders for each project under that (example: planning).
I'm assuming since my project path is C:/ColdFusion8/wwwroot/planning/ and my "Sample URL" is http://localhost:8500/planning/ that previewing the index.cfm file in that folder should give me the proper URL. But I get a "File not found" error.
I can browse to the file in Firefox and view it fine, so I suspect a pathing problem.
Ok, figured it out after enabling robust debugging and seeing that the /planning/ part of the local URL was being omitted. I chose the setting that overrides the default, and hard-coded it for each of my projects. Works a charm!
