          Look for the entries in Coldfusion's log files at the time the issue occurred. Copy-paste what you find here, and we might all contribute suggestions.

            I got these "Information","main","01/21/15","17:44:31",,"Event Gateway Disabled." from eventgateway.log at the time issue occured.

              What about entries in the other logs?

                Please see the different logs (Application log, Exception log, server log). I am afraid about that server log. Please see.

                    "Information" tells you that Coldfusion is functioning normally. Otherwise you would have got a "Warning" or an "Error".

                     

                    By default, event gateways are disabled upon start-up. ColdFusion logs this fact for formality, that's all.

                      Your log files show nothing out of the ordinary. In fact, they show ColdFusion starting up cleanly, without any issues. The only problem is the coding error on line 7 of the page mail_action_Insurance.cfm.

                       

                      Ensure that the variable named 'state' exists. If necessary, use cfparam.

                        Thank you for your reply.

                         

                        And sorry to bother you, then, any idea about "The ColdFusion 8 Application Server service was terminated" this. This happening intermittently

                         

                        Did you faced this issue anytime in your career.

                          Okay, is the mentioned coding error will cause the total CF server functionality ? Any chance for that ?

                            My pleasure. I am glad to be of help.

                             

                            Say what? I have had periods when I have had to battle with intermittent server termination for days and days. Nine times out of ten the cause turned out to be a faulty setting or a coding error.

                             

                            Hence my suggestion that you begin by correcting the errors that ColdFusion found in the code. Another potential source of server problems is the Application file. Could you share yours with us?

                             

                            The Event Viewer shows ColdFusion stopping at 17:44:20. Your logs show it restarting at 17:44:31. So, let us take a step back. Are there any log entries in the 1 minute interval between 17:43:20 and 17:44:20?

                              I could see another thing that 'ColdFusion Event Gateway Services' is disabled in coldfusion administrator. Is this would cause the issue ?

                               

                              Thank you.

                                As I explained, that is actually as it should be. When you install ColdFusion, the Event Gateway is disabled by default. Did you see the 2 questions in my last post?
