Are you on Windows?
If so, look in your Services for "ColdFusion 9 Application Server" and make sure it is running.
Yes I'm running Widows, the ColdFusion services running are:
ColdFusion 9 Application Server
ColdFusion 9 ODBC Agent
ColdFusion 9 ODBC Server
ColdFusion 9 Search Server
ColdFusion 9 Solr Service
The http://localhost:8500/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm URL returns an "Unable to Connect" but http://127.0.0.1/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm does work.
This is what I have been fighting, I'm not sure what is going on
Thanks for your help,
Ok, I haven't done a lot of hooking up CFB to CF servers, so hopefully someone with better experience will step in to help. But one thing I'm curious about...you can't connect to port 8500 using your browser, but you can to port 80 (the default). Since http://127.0.0.1/ works, you are using port 80 instead of 8500 to connect to your CF Admin. Did you configure IIS or Apache to run on your local machine? If so, you might need to tell CFB to look at localhost instead of localhost:8500.
I get the following console errors
localhost:(11/25 at 03:51:19) Server is available. Getting server
settings from Server
localhost:Error(11/25 at 03:51:47) Unable to query service for the
If I edit the server entry in CFB to port 80, it says it's running but
the apps can't see it.
I went in and configured IIS but if someone can give all the services
that must be enabled that would be a help
Ok, well, I'm glad I was able to atleast advance your progress a little bit, even if you aren't all the way there yet. I will say that I have had a lot of problems getting the server stuff to work, and I have seen numerous posts in this forum showing similar difficulties. I hope Adobe makes things a little easier for us in the final release of CFB.
Here is how I added ColdFusion 9 server to ColdFusion Builder beta 2
I am using:
Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 64 bit Operating System
ColdFusion 9 installed: ColdFusion_9_WWE_win64
ColdFusion Builder installed: coldfusionbuilder_b2_install_winjre_100509
When CF 9.0 & CFB beta 2 installed using default settings along with IIS All
To varify: Click - Start - Programs - Adobe - ColdFusion 9 - Web Server Configuration Tool
Add server to CF Builder as follows:
In next step click Browse for Server Home. Choose C:\ColdFusion9 and Choose Version 9.0.x
Click Finish to complete ColdFusion Server Setup
For example: I am using CFB to create CF project saved at location:
