My web company just downloaded coldfusion for linux (a beta) and coldfusion studio. What I basically want to do is set up my coldfusion studio on my windows 98 machine to recognize the linux machine as the server for development. I've installed coldfusion 4.5.1 (beta) on my windows machine and the server on my linux machine. How do I make them recognize each other? How do I set them up? If this requires a long explanation, then referring me to a web site or documents would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

more info:
Well...I'm completely new to coldfusion and if i make a something.cfm file and view it on the server it shows up. Note that I know no coldfusion commands so this is just a basic html doc given a .cfm. I just need to know how this whole thing works. I basically wanted to use coldfusion with a mySQL database on an Apache webserver (linux). I just need to know how i basically set this up. I also want to develop on a windows machine running coldfusion studio. So i basically need my windows machine to interface with the coldfusion server on our linux server. I have no clue how to do this or if i even have the right idea. Thanks for any help.

Hi,

1- verify your compatibilities here : http://www.allaire.com/handlers/index.cfm?ID=13567
2- You have tried your server, just for check if you can see a .CFM on server.
3- check if you can connect with Studio (RDS).

send me more details ...

just add feww Coldfusion Command to your CFM file like:


       <CFSET truc="Coucou">
       <CFOUTPUT>#truc#</CFOUTPUT>
       <CFABORT>


save it on the server in a falder accessible by your web server.
If you can read :

    Coucou


in your page, you're all set.

You may have to edit your http.conf file within Apache hive, add a MIME type to return .cfm file, otherwise, whenever you click on a .cfm file, the browser will prompt you to save it as a binary file.

Xandrr,

First of all you must have de LINUX server working OK with the webserver, I suppose this is not a problem for you. When you are sure, then install ColdFusion server in this machine. You must edit http.conf from your Apache server in order to add the ColdFusion MIME type.

Now you have three services, Application Server, Executive and RDS. RDS is the one used to connect the Remote Development machines to your server. His security settings can be changed in the ColdFusion Administrator.

You must add your server in the RDS section of ColdFusion Studio in your development machine.

In order to try the ColdFusion installation, run this littel program.

<!--- TEST.CFM --->
<!--- BOF --->
<cfset testing = "It works!">
<cfoutput>#testing#</cfoutput>
<!--- EOF --->

Hope this helps,
cfmrulez!
