Just installed Developer edition of CF10. On a new Windows 2008 server.
Registrar pointing to correct server; everything working OK. Sort of.
When I type in to my browser at the office (no where near Data Center), the domain resolves fine and I get the home.cfm page display just as it should.
CF is picking up from IIS the default document home.cfm.
The menu and other hyperlinks appear and when I click on them I get a 404. All the files are there.
When I type in the URL www10.mydomain.com the home page comes up.
When I type in www10.mydomain.com/home.cfm it fails.
Which tells me that IIS is correctly going to the right path and displaying the right file. In the debugging screen I see where a whole bunch of other files have been included.
Also when I enable directory browsing in IIS I do not get a listing screen ... be nice to see where IIS thinks it is.
Why would the inclusion of the actual template send IIS into a tizzy?
I restarted CF, IIS to no avail.
There's got to be something in the IIS panel misconfigured. Compared it to production servers in same rack - see no difference.
Default web site is also pointing to same fodler in case it's an IP oddity.
Realise this is developer edition and limited to 2 IP addresses.
And no, the URL is not mydomain!
Is this a clue ... when I go to browse form within IIS on the server I get a much more detailed screen as to where I am.
I did see this link, but cannot say I follow it?
Clearly this didn't install properly. I seem to have had issues installing every version of CF in the past and it came down to some gibberish in the Web Server configuration tool?
Problem sorted by uninstalling and reinstalling CF.
