I'm a little confused about what you mean. The error page shows that a file that was included in a file (neither of which currently exist) does not exist?
In what way are you finding that a page does not exist currently but it used to?

Have you tried clearing the ColdFusion cache? There could be a compiled
version of the CFML file that still exists in the cache depending on the
CF Administrator settings.
I have cleared both IIS cache and CF cache.
I literally mean that a page that does not exist any longer - the file and the directory have been removed in the redesign - if you go the URL - CF returns an error message saying that the include file can't be found
Could not find the included template /header.cfm which is correct but then neither does the page that it is reading from. It has been deleted - people are coming to those links from old Google search results.
I look at the path under the CF_TEMPLATE_PATH variable and the file does not exist! It is maddening.
Have you had any luck in fixing this?
We just renamed a directory and wrote the 404 page to redirect any bookmarks. But it's doing the same thing: going to the page that used to exist and throwing an error. How do I clear out the caches?
Sorry - it is still doing it. We are moving to new servers this month so I am hopeful that will finally solve the problem. Let me know if you get an answer - it is VERY annoying...
