    ColdFusion Server Settings box is blank

    BreakawayPaul Level 2

      I finally got my copy of CFBuilder 2, and I've been trying to get it set up for my projects.  When editing code, I have a "Firefox" and "IE" tab at the bottom of the editor window, but when I click on either one (or if I click on the green "Run" button in the toolbar), I get the following message:

       

      Server is not configured with the project.

       

      Along with instructions about how to configure the server settings.  However, when I do (project->properties->ColdFusion Server Settings), that box is completely blank, other than the "Restore Defaults" and "Apply" buttons.

       

      What gives?

          Ok, somehow I managed to figure it out.  I ended up with a double "http://" in the server path, so I nuked it and started over.

           

          Now my problem is a 404 when I preview in my browser.

           

          I have CF8 installed locally, running on localhost:8500.  I have C:/ColdFusion8/wwwroot/ as my local path, and folders for each project under that (example: planning).

           

          I'm assuming since my project path is C:/ColdFusion8/wwwroot/planning/ and my "Sample URL" is http://localhost:8500/planning/ that previewing the index.cfm file in that folder should give me the proper URL.  But I get a "File not found" error.

           

          I can browse to the file in Firefox and view it fine, so I suspect a pathing problem.

            Ok, figured it out after enabling robust debugging and seeing that the /planning/ part of the local URL was being omitted.  I chose the setting that overrides the default, and hard-coded it for each of my projects.  Works a charm!
