Any idea how to start/stop the CF Server 4.5.1 (and 5.0 version too)?
The old CF 4.0 cfide/administrator/startstop.htm does not exists any more.... so how can we restart now?

on windows or *nix?

NT:
NET STOP "Cold Fusion Application Server"
NET START "Cold Fusion Application Server"

*nix
<installdir>/coldfusion/bin/start
<installdir>/coldfusion/bin/stop

you would have to create your own code to call the command line versions.

I think that is what the web one did.

Yes that's what source code i'm looking for.
Allaire's code for start/stop was written in Java...
I know how to start or stop a service from Coldfusion to Windows NT but if i stop the CF Server then (of course) i can not run the same code to start it again because it's down :) So the solution must be an external file - utility - applet etc that can start/stop NT services from a browser...

Thanx in advance,

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I am not sure what they run but you could create a batch file that will start and stop and run that batch file.

Finally i've found the solution (with trial & error)...
It works if you just find and copy the old (v.4.0) cfide/administrator/startstop.htm to the same directory of cf server 4.5.1
I found some docs that explains why allaire (or macromedia) delete it from the new version... there was a vulnerability with this file:
http://www3.ca.com/Virus/Threat.asp?ID=439

But this isn't tje solution to delete the file to solve the vulnerability, one more mistake for the company...

Anyway... thanx a lot for your help folks.

A "C" ?? If you didn't like my comments, I would have rather you give the points to someone else than give me a "C".  We could have discussed this more until you found an optimal solution.
