Start/Stop Coldfusion Server 4.5.1 ?

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?

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

[Webinar] Kill tickets & tabs using PowerShell

Are you tired of cycling through the same browser tabs everyday to close the same repetitive tickets? In this webinar JumpCloud will show how you can leverage RESTful APIs to build your own PowerShell modules to kill tickets & tabs using the PowerShell command Invoke-RestMethod.

 
cheekycjCommented:
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,
Dimitris

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.
