Hi,
Just loaded CF and did the "hello world" page in CFML Basics. I've spent a day trying to see the program in the server at URL http://localhost:8500/test/cfpage.cfm, error code is "cannot find server or DNS error". Also cannot see the Administrator screen at http://localhost:8500/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm, same error code. Went through the ColdFusion forum answers and couldn't get an answer.

I'm running a Win 98 machine, tried Dreamweaver and Homesite+ to make the file (no difference)and am using Personal Web Server. PWS root is C:\inetpub\wwwroot, the cfpage.cfm is at C:\CFusionMX\wwwroot\.

So,frustrated beyond belief I'm hoping one of you kind folks will take pity on me and earn the 100 points. I think it has something to do with the PWS?

make sure your CF is started and you don't have this line
<attribute name="deactivated">true</attribute>
in cf_root\runtime\servers\default\SERVER-INF\jrun.xml file.

To CJ:
I was using the port 8500 in the path from what I read in the CF Forum.

Both http://localhost and http://127.0.0.1 give me the the welcome to PWS page so PWS is working.

Neither http://localhost/test/cfpage.cfm
or
http://127.0.0.1/test/cfpage.cfm work I get error 404 File not found. The same is true for http://localhost/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm
and
http://127.0.0.1/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm

The test file's path is C:\CFusionMX\wwwroot\test\cfpage.cfm

To Kennethxu:
I do have <attribute name="deactivated">true</attribute> in the jrun.xml file. How do I start CF working?

http://127.0.0.1:8500/test/cfpage.cfm gives me "Page cannot be displayed, Can't find server". I tried this URL because some dude last summer went through this web_root thing on the CF Forum and it worked for him.

dmurdock, you must remove
<attribute name="deactivated">true</attribute>
in order to make port 8500 working. restart CF (or your PC) if necessary.
