The way that I understand things, web browsers send all thier
page requests to the web server, which in turn identifies which
pages need to be processed by an application server (i.e. CFM, ASP,
etc) and sends the request to the appropriate application server.
The application server then processes the request and returns HTML
(usually) and the web server then presents this to the client. Is
it possible to change a setting so that .html or .htm files are
send to coldfusion for processing in addition to .cfml files (in
Microsoft IIS)? If so, does anyone know of a howto article out
there? Just curious.
To be a little more expansive. You you can change what
sent to the app server for processing. Exactly how depends on
which version of IIS and ColdFusion one is running, but
basically it is
IIS settings that say what to do with each file extension
Google should turn up something if one is diligent.
