No there is no easy updater function. What is easy is, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".
What, specifically, do you want to update? Is the site not working correctly on CFMX?
Dreamweaver and CF are two entirely different products for totally different functions.
You can use Dreamweaver to write CF applications. Other than that, there is no relationship between the two.
I have to migrate the website to a server that is running CF MX and the site being created in CF 5.0 is not compatable. When i go to the site location on the new server, i get the following error message. Does anyone know how i can update the site?

Does anyone know how i can update the site?
CONNECTSTRING and other "dynamic/runtime" DSN connection parameters of
the <cfquery> tag are deprecated in the current versions of ColdFusion.
These queries will have to be rewritten to use named data sources that
are configured in the CF administrator.
can you post the part of the CFM code that is causing the error?

Anyone want to earn a quick buck or two and help me update this website? Let me know.
What sort of database are you using with this app?
Ok, so first things first. You need to define a datasource for your database, in the ColdFusion Administrator (which I'm assuming you've got access to).
After you've done that, at the very least you need to amend all your queries to remove the deprecated tag parameters and reflect the new datasource name.
How much CF programming have you done before?
Please Use the Code Analyzer there in the CF MX Administrator - If not 100%, it should let you know aba deprecated tags etc. say 75 - 80% accurately.
