Setting CF Mappings Per Application

Does anyone know if it's possible to set a cf mapping per application?

For example, say to you have 2 different sites running on the same machine with the following directory structure.

/wwwroot/site1
/wwwroot/site1/Application.cfm

/wwwroot/site2
/wwwroot/site2/Application.cfm

Is it possible to set a different mapping for "/" in each respective Application.cfm.

In site1, I'd like to map "/" to "/wwwroot/site1/" and in site2 I'd like to map "/" to "/wwwroot/site2/".

Image that you inheirt code from 2 different applications and both use the "/" mapping, how do you propose to get both these apps running without having to change a bunch of code.

Thanks.

Yes u can - just add a new mapping - name it as

1. /site1root/ & map it to "/wwwroot/site1"
2. /site2root/ & map it to "/wwwroot/site2"

this wld enable u to access ur code individually in both the applications !

U can also do the same for ur WebServer mappings ...

let me know ...

PS : i dont know what do u mean by "Is it possible to set a different mapping for "/" in each respective Application.cfm"

Anand,

Thanks for the response.
I know I can create to mappings /site1root/ and /site2root/, but that won't solve my problem elegantly.

To be more specific, site1 and site2 are on the same server and running under different Applications.

/wwwroot/site1/
/wwwroot/site1/customtags/test/test.cfm

/wwwroot/site2/
/wwwroot/site2/customtags/test/test.cfm

The test.cfm custom tag has the same name in both applications, but the file's content is different. That means I can't put them both in a global custom tags directory because they do slightly different things.

Each site contains several imports, e.g. <cfimport taglib="/customtags/test" prefix="test" />.

I understand that I could go through each site and respectively replace all the cfimports with <cfimport taglib="/site1root/customtags/test" prefix="test" />, etc, but I don't want too. I'd rather create a mapping for "/" in each of the 2 sites. That way I don't have to change any code.

Please let me know if this makes sense? I also understand that I could also rework all the code to use cfmodule, but I have read that cfmodule is much slower in CFMX than cfimport.

Thanks.

Anand,

Thanks for you help, but I've found my solution. I will run multiple instances of CFMX; that way each site can have it's own settings. It appears that there are also some other advantages to doing this.

Thanks again,
