I’d recommend you look first at your Apache log on the server to see the requests being sent to the server, under both situations, and confirm both that they get where you expect, and also if the log may show any more details about what’s going on. The request will be to /CFIDE/main/ide.cfm.
Then look also at the CF 10 request log. Many don’t realize it’s there, but yes all requests handled by CF10 are logged additionally in a log in \[instance]|cfusion\runtime\logs as localhost_access_log.yyyy-mm-dd.txt. And yes, the calls via RDS to that main.ide.cfm will also be logged there. If not, then they’re not even getting to cf (which may point to an issue with Apache).
Of course, there is also a possible problem from your client side, perhaps either something in CFB itself, or something in your local machine firewall, or a network one. I don’t use a Mac, but I know on Windows there are tools that can watch all communications from the client out to the server and back. You may see something amiss in the communications, if in fact you somehow don’t find the expected requests being logged on the server.
Let us know if that helps.
thanks for your quick response and your advice! As it turned out, the server isn't receiving any requests according to the "apache_log"-file when the option "use SSL" within the RDS configuration is enabled. I know that configuring SSL irrespective of the application is always a bit tricky, so I decided to setup the environment without using SSL for now. So for that reason I enabled SSL on Lion Server and I'm using port 80 from now on.
The Apache log files are now recording the single requests, as well as the CF request .txt logfile. (by the way thanks for that, I didn't know that CF is logging the requests too).
Unfortunately another problem I wasn't able to solve by now has occurred. RDS started prompting this error message (at least it is a different one now ! ;))
"Unable to connect the RDS Server "cfusion".
Could not initialize class com.adobe.rds.core.services.Messages"
I found a blog entry at http://forums.adobe.com/message/4233616 on that issue and followed the single steps but unfortunately that didn't work for me. When I try to open the RDS Dataview, the Apache error_log file is prompting the following line:
"[Wed Mar 20 19:00:00 2013] [error] [client 22.214.171.124] File does not exist: /Applications/ColdFusion10/cfusion/wwwroot/CFIDE/main"
The Apache access-log is prompting:
"126.96.36.199 - - [20/Mar/2013:19:20:24 +0100] "POST /CFIDE/main/ide.cfm?CFSRV=IDE&ACTION=DBFUNCS HTTP/1.1" 404 348 "-" "Mozilla/3.0 (compatible; Macromedia RDS Client)"
Do you know what the problem might be?
Thanks for your help
Axel, sorry I lost track of this thread until now.
As for your last question, what happens if you visit that URL (/CFIDE/main/ide.cfm )on your server via a browser? You should get a 405 status code, saying “HTTP method GET is not supported by this URL”. If you get anything else, then there is some other configuration problem that’s blocking its working (if indeed RDS is enabled in the CF instance).
PS It’s “Charlie”, not “Charly”.
