    Problem getting CF8 administrator to work on windows 2008 server

    spradhan

      When I create a file helloworld.cfm in root folder and browse to http://localhost/helloworld.cfm, it renders cfoutput fine <cfoutput>#now()#</cfoutput> shows the correct date and time.

       

      But, when I go to the CF Administrator and enter the password for the initial setup, I keep getting the following error. Anyone have any idea how to fix it? I have checked permission everything seems fine.

       

      If there is no solution, then I am thinking of upgrading to CF 10. If I buy and upgrade from CF8 to CF10, can I do a fresh install on a new 2008 server, or do i need to have CF8 installed correctly first?

      There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

          I would just go and install 10.  ColdFusion 8 is currently 2 major version behind.. and very soon to be 3.  It is going to be harder and harder to get support for any issue you run into.

           

          Also, no, you don't need CF8 installed to install 10.

            For CF 8 :  Enable the built-in port in jrun.xml like this : (C:\ColdFusion8\runtime\servers\coldfusion\SERVER-INF)

             

              <!-- ================================================================== -->

              <!-- This is the built-in JRun Web Server                               -->

              <!-- ================================================================== -->

              <service class="jrun.servlet.http.WebService" name="WebService">

                <attribute name="port">8500</attribute>

                <attribute name="interface">*</attribute>

                <attribute name="deactivated">false</attribute>

             

            For CF 10 :

            • The installer of CF 10 is indepedent of CF 8.
            • If you want to keep both CF 8 and CF 10 on the same server, then yes it is possible.
            • If you just want CF 10, then you can uninstall CF 8 and install CF 10.
            • However if you want to keep CF 10 only and migrate all CF 8 settings to CF 10 then make sure that when you install CF 10, the service of CF 8 should be running. At the end of CF 10 install, you will be asked : Do you want to migrate all the CF 8 settings to CF 10? Say yes and all CF 8 settings should be migrated to CF 10
