I'm reworking an old coldfusion website.
Running the developer edition on my Win7 desktop, using the tomcat server (by default)
Trying to do some things with mod_rewrite, but can't seem to locate the .htaccess file anywhere...
Where would it be?
Should I reinstall the developer version to use IIS as the webserver to better work with mod_rewrite?
It looks the live the site I'm reworking is actually hosted on IIS, so it might be a better idea to go the reinstall/IIS route?
If the site is hosted in IIS then use the URL Rewrite module in IIS. (Requires adding if not already installed). Mod_rewrite is an apache thing. If you develop using .htaccess then it wont work live on IIS.
A .htaccess file needs to be created in the root of the web folder if it doesnt exist. It usually isnt their by default. A quick google of how to create a .htaccess file will give you what you need.
Got it. I wasn't able to find where any of the coldfusion server files were located, adding to my confusion I suppose.
I'll switch over to my Win10 PC and do an IIS install and do the coldfusion developer install over there and continue.
