    Resulting URL in CFMX Cluster

    sdsinc_pmascari Level 2
      I'm configuring our first CF Cluster. Up until now we've used only CF Standard.

      Using the many articles and tutorials from Macromedia's web I've got everything seemingly up and running. However, I've run into an issue that is probably an easy fix but has eluded me so far.

      We have two application servers clustered and connecting to an external IIS server.

      I set up a cluster of two Jrun servers, each on a different server. Specific directories on server 1 and server 2 are

      d:\CFMX_Server1\

      and

      d:\CFMX_Server1\

      Easy enough. I then install CFMX7 Enterprise to each in a cfm folder:

      d:\CFMX_Server1\cfm\

      and

      d:\CFMX_Server1\cfm\

      In each these folders are the CFIDE, Web-Inf, etc... folders.

      My web site(s) are then placed into these directories as well:

      d:\CFMX_Server1\MySite\

      and

      d:\CFMX_Server1\MySite\

      Next, according to MM's articles, I need to reproduce this folder structure on the web server, which I did (d:\CFMX_Server1\MySite\), and then I run the Jrun web site config tool. Everything works fine.

      ***IMPORTANT***
      I have set the site in IIS to point to the directory on the web server and, what I figure is, the web config tool has told IIS to actually look for the site, in the same directory, on the Cluster I have defined on the CF servers.

      This works....BUT...

      I can only load my site(s) if I use the "cfm" directory in the URL. For example:

      I want " http://www.mysite.com" to be directed to "d:\CFMX_Server1\MySite\" in my cluster, but it doesn't.

      I have to use " http://www.mysite.com/cfm/" and then it will open the scripts in "d:\CFMX_Server1\MySite\".

      I tried re-creating the Cluster and installing CFMX7 directly to the Jrun directory so that I had:
      d:\CFMX_Server1\CFIDE\
      d:\CFMX_Server1\WEB-INF\
      d:\CFMX_Server1\index.cfm

      But this did not work.

      How can I set this up so " http://www.mysite.com" will point to the correct directory without need to specify the folder CFMX is installed in?

      Hope this made sense :-)
