Switching web server on ColdFusion

In case there is a need to switch from an external web server to the built-in ColdFusion web server, you can acheive this without reinstalling.

Switch from an external web server to the built-in web server

  1. Back up the jrun.xml file.

    This file is in the cf_root\runtime\servers\default\SERVER-INF directory in Windows, and in the cf_root/runtime/servers/default/SERVER-INF directory in UNIX.

  2. Open the original jrun.xml file for editing.
  3. Locate the WebService service and set the deactivated attribute to false:
    <service class="jrun.servlet.http.WebService" name="WebService">     <attribute name="port">8500</attribute>     <attribute name="interface">*</attribute>     <attribute name="deactivated">false</attribute>     ... </service> 

  4. Locate the ProxyService service and set the deactivated attribute to true:
    <service class="jrun.servlet.jrpp.JRunProxyService" name="ProxyService">   <attribute name="activeHandlerThreads">8</attribute>   <attribute name="minHandlerThreads">1</attribute>   <attribute name="maxHandlerThreads">1000</attribute>   <attribute name="mapCheck">0</attribute>   <attribute name="threadWaitTimeout">20</attribute>   <attribute name="backlog">500</attribute>   <attribute name="deactivated">true</attribute> ... 

  5. Save the file.
  6. Copy the CFM pages in your web root directory (including the CFIDE and cfdocs directories) to the ColdFusion cf_root/wwwroot directory, and use appropriate URL references (for example, http://localhost:8500/YourApp1/index.cfm). If you switch from the built-in web server to an external web server, you must copy the contents of the cf_root/wwwroot directory to your web server root. If you are using Adobe Dreamweaver, ensure that you reconfigure any sites that you move from one server to another.
  7. Restart ColdFusion.

It works! Don't forget the :8500 that must be the port that CF's internal webserver listens on. Also works with

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with
hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup.
Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find
