I would anwser with two questions:
1/ did you develop using CF9 built-in web server ?
2/ which web server is your ISP using ? or on which production web server do you plan your deployment.
Some mapping may be needed in the event of you developping with the built-in web server of CF9
and your ISP using a separate web server
Thank you for the reply. Here are the answers
1. I developed using CF9 developer edition on windows 7 64-bit using wamp server (which uses apache, embedded I believe and mySQL)
2. My production environment runs CF9 on a windows iis server, and I am in a shared hosting environment.
Are there any resources that you could point me to that help me to understand what the mapping is, and how to manage it? My web host provider has been very little help, both in terms of their IT staff and in terms of their knowledge base. I think one of the things that complicates it is that I am using CF9 with flex, and because flex has its own eccentricities it complicates the process of getting everything to work properly on the production environment. I am happy to roll up my sleeves and figure things out, but unlike when I developed Flash Builder + php (where you can find resources that describe how to migrate from a local environment to a production server environment) -- Flash Builder + CF9 is much more frustrating because there are very few good resources that explain this part of the process -- which is obviously critical to the job.
Any guidance on how I can learn how to get the settings changed (and even where to find them!) so that my local FB4+CF9+CFB app can be made to work in my windows iis shared server prodution environment would be REALLY appreciated.
if you are using this
then you deploy locally with the integrated Cold Fusion 9 webserver
else if this is your base url
1/ IIS must be configured to work with coldfusion 9 (for the CFC's to work)
is this the case with your ISP
or they provide a coldfusion jrun server
2/ if IIS is the web server, then it must be configured to serve mxml files
These two technotes should be helpul:
Keep me informed
