          HI guys. im having issues restarting my ColdFusion 9 Application Server. when i hit the restart service button, its returns an error message "Windows could not start the ColdFusion 9 Application Server on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, anf refer to service-specific error code 0." Pls how do i resolve this.

            Take a look in your ColdFusion logs folder and the Windows Event Log, there is a number of things that might cause this not to start - but also make sure you try to stop the service (and give it time to fully stop) and then try hitting start, instead of using the restart button.

              What does the end or tail of ColdFusion9\runtime\logs\ coldfusion-out.log report? HTH, Carl.

                Sorry guys, its ColdFusion 10, no Coldfusion 9.

                The last 2 entry on that log (coldfusion10\cfusion\logs\coldfusion-out.log) is

                 

                Information [ ajp-bio-8012-exec-3] - User admin changed Memory Variables settings. Use J2EE session variables: From 'NO' ro 'YES'.

                Information [ pool-2-thread-2 ] - ColdFusion Stopped

                 

                This log activity is from my earlier yesterday's activity. there is no indication of Coldfusion start activities.

                there is a log i found those that updates everytime i attempt to refresh my browser to point to ther url (localhost/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm).

                 

                these r the enties

                log source, ( coldfusion10\config\wsconfig\1\isapi_redirect.log )

                  Suggest try start CF10 from CMD prompt (perhaps run as administrator). From CMD CD ColdFusion10\cfusion\bin run cfstart.bat


                  While that may not start CF10 perhaps some debug information will display showing the cause.

                   

                  Not sure what to make of  coldfusion10\config\wsconfig\1\isapi_redirect.log perhaps because CF10 application service is not running the tomcat connector is not talking to IIS. I think worry about the application service first then if there is still a webserver connection problem latter.

                   

                  HTH, Carl.
