If you want to use debugging information you need to set up a ColdFusion RDS Server and open the files through this in Studio.

In order to set up an RDS server you need to make sure that the RDS Service is running - ColdFusion RDS Serivce in the services list.

Then go to Studio and in the Drop-down to select hard drives select Allaire FTP and RDS.

Right Click on the Allaire FTP and RDS that appears in the folders window and choose add RDS Server.

Enter localhost as the description, 127.0.0.1 as the host name, 80 as the port. Leave the username blank and use the password that you specified for ColdFusion Studio when you installed CF Server. If you can't remember this you can go into the ColdFusion Server Administrator and untick the "Use a ColdFusion Studio Password" tick box or type a new password into the text boxes.

Make sure that you can browse the server using this RDS Mapping by clicking on the entry for localhost under Allaire FTP and RDS. If you are prompted for a password enter the one for Studio security.

You should be able to browse all the directories and drives on the machine. When you open a file it should have a little green dot beside the file name at the bottom.

Once you have got this far you are ready to set up debugging. You need to specfiy the RDS Server to debug on. Choose localhost from the drop down list. Type the url of the page you want to debug.

The debugger should now be working.

If you find that it doesn't work close ColdFusion Studio and restart the ColdFusion Application Server service and the ColdFusion RDS Service. Then re-open Studio and try again.

If it doesn't work then you will probably need to delete the RDS Server and start again. The debugging information should be filled with all sorts of variables if it is working correctly.

You will probably have a few failed attempts to get it set up before it works correctly, but once it is working it tends to stay working.

Oh, yes...

I forgot to mention that you will also need to set-up a development mapping which allows you to browse the files which have been opened via the RDS Service before Debugging will work.

The studio mapping should look something like this:

rds://localhost/f:\InetPub/wwwroot/

Because you are using RDS to open the file in Studio you need to specify that as the path to get to the file.

I think the settings you need are:

Studio Path:
rds://localhost/<DRIVE>:\InetPub/wwwroot/

Server Path:
<DRIVE>:\InetPub\wwwroot\

Test this by trying to browse a file from the rds connection in Studio before trying the development mapping.

When you are using the debugger your path should be:

http://localhost/folder/start1.cfm

NOT

http//localhost/inetpub/wwwroot/folder/start1.cfm\

The url is pretty much always wrong in the debug settings dialog box.

Doh,

This line:

Test this by trying to browse a file from the rds connection in Studio before trying the development
mapping.

should read:

Test this by trying to browse a file from the rds connection in Studio before trying the debugger.
