    Setting up a new site


      Hi All -


      I use Dreamweaver currently and I want to switch over to CFBuilder, but I can't get my server set up properly. I have network access to the drives on the server where the content lives. When I create a site in Dreamweaver, everything makes sense to me, but when I create a 'server' (I work on about 5 sites, all on the same server) I get confused by 'host name', 'context root', 'application server name'. Is there some documentation somewhere that tells me what to do?


      I guess I should also note that we are on CF8.


      Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

          Am I required to run the CFBuilder admin code on the server? I am hesitant to do this because it is our production server.

            Hi Rob,


            I guess your scenario is of a remotely running server having 5 sites/virtual hosts.


            For this you need to add a remote server. You can refer to this for adding the same: http://blogs.adobe.com/cfbuilder/2009/07/remote_server_setup_is_it_real.html


            Once this is done you can go to the Virtual Host Settings Tab and add your sites.

            You can then associate your Project with the virtual hosts and work on them.

              Thanks for the link, and the instructions. I guess I need to decide if I want to attempt this on our production server, or I guess I could wait until we are on CF9, which will hopefully be soon.

                Hi Bhakti,


                Long time no speak!


                I recently re-installed our internal testing server to run as CF8 Multiserver. I could never get the Standalone or even the ColdFusion 9 Beta to work properly with CF Builder.


                I ran through the steps on your blog for the Multiserver install, and I ran into this error when running adminstart.bat.


                "This application has failed to start because MSVCR71.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."


                Within the Command Prompt I see the following:


                "Error loading: C:\JRun4\jre\bin\client\jvm.dll"


                Why might this be? I just re-installed CF8 from scratch, so why would files be missing? I am currently running CF Builder Beta 2.

                  Actually, Bhakti, never mind!


                  I'm looking at the Servers tab within CF Builder right now, and the status for my server profile reads as "Running". Finally!


                  I still don't know why the adminstart.bat file throws that error, but I guess it doesn't matter now.

                    Hi Jose,


                    Good to know that you could set up the server in CFB.

                    The error that you are getting comes in if your jvm is corrupt. If you want to fix this issue you can install a newer version of JDK and point your ColdFusion's jvm.config and java home to this newly installed jdk.
