on cold fusion server 5.0, can you set it so that the
cfapplication variable only ties to one website?
meaning, if two application .cfm files have the same <cfapplication..> name on the same server, how you can make it so that they can't access each other's data sources or variables.

is this something allaire/macromedia has posted patches/solutions to?

<cfapplication name="AppName" sessionmanagement="Yes" clientmanagement="yes" sessiontimeout="20">

in cold fusion server 5.0, can you restrict a website from using certain <cfapplication..> names? i.e can you set it so that a given website running on cold fusion server 5.0 can only use a certain <cfapplication..> name?

so if the webhoster say wanted website 1 to only use "Website1LoginApp" as the <cfapplication..> name,
the developer for website 1 would have to use the below line in their application .cfm file.

********************************
<cfapplication name="Website1LoginApp" sessionmanagement="Yes" clientmanagement="yes" sessiontimeout="20">
********************************

how can this be done?

yeah you can assign one application.cfm file per web site the admin creats, normally the application.cfm is in the root directory of the particular website.

you cant create 2 application.cfm for one site, you can ofcourse in any of the subdirectory but it means they are
two different applications

for example you have created site1, and it points to c:\inetpub\wwwroot\site1 , you have one application.cfm file within site1

ie c:\inetpub\wwwroot\site1\application.cfm , if you create more application.cfm within subdirectories if c:\inetpub\wwwroot\site1 then it becomes a seperate application.

if you can create 2 sites, site1 and site2, you can use 2 applications like
c:\inetpub\wwwroot\site1\
c:\inetpub\wwwroot\site1\
which are 2 seperate applications and they will be in different ports of IIS. The default one will be in port80, if you create a new one maybe on port81, you have to access it like

http://servername/site1/  (default 80)
http://servername:81/site2/

cheers.
