CF9.0.2 then could be postParametersLimit.
Edit neo-runtime.xml in \ColdFusion9\lib change setting from 100 to say 500 (do your own testing to know what number) and restart CF application service to apply.
I appreciate the reply, however I tried it and I'm still getting 500 errors.
How about make a "hello world" CFM and see if that works? Expand that test a bit make a "cfquery / cfdump" CFM then see if that works? Regards, Carl.
Thanks, but I haven't even gotten that far yet. I can't even get html to load (e.g. index.htm). Everything generates a 500 error.
You can access CF administrator on the console OK. What happens if you try access CF administrator in a client?
If your CF administrator page is getting opened, then the installation for coldfusion is done; I feel you need to check the IIS, try to access the IIS alone and see whether you are getting the home page of IIS
I can access the CF administrator in a browser on the local machine (e.g. 127.0.0.1/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm).
After doing some further research, I realized I have IIS7.5 not IIS7. The problem seems to be related to the web.config file that gets installed in all my web sites. If I delete part of the file (<add name="JWildCardHandler" path="*" verb="*" modules="IsapiModule" scriptProcessor="C:\ColdFusion9\runtime\lib\wsconfig\1\jrun_iis6_wildcard.dll" resourceType="Unspecified" requireAccess="None" />) I can get html files to load. I still get 500 errors for cfm files though. I double checked the permissions and psaadm and psacln have full control for all files and subfolders under C:\ColdFusion9 including jrun_iis6_wildcard.dll.
Issue resolved! It was related to 32-bit/64-bit incompatibilities with Plesk. There were two steps to solving this problem:
1- In IIS manager, go to the Advanced properties of the application pool, and set Enable 32-Bit Applications to 'false' for plesk(default)(2.0)(pool).
2- In Plesk, disable Web statistics (accessible via password-protected directory '/plesk-stat/webstat/')
Note that you won't be able to use the Plesk protected directory feature until Plesk fixes this issue.
