Verity & GoDaddy

Posted on 2006-06-05

I tried to ask GoDaddy if they have Verity installed along with their ColdFusion.  No one seems to be able to answer.  They just wrote back and said "if it is part of the standard installation."  So I am trying to figure out a way to test it.  I have been trying to set up a collection.. but I keep getting a 500 NULL on my page back.

    Well the proper format for creating a collection would be:


    One issue you may have is knowing a valid path to save the collection to.  I'm pretty sure there is a way to see the path to YOUR hosted directory, but I dont remember how, and thats not guaranteed to work anyway.

    Best bet is to try starting off with some roots, C:\ or D:\ and hope those work.

    To get the path use:
    You'll notice the \ in the path.
    correct if server is windows
    use / if not.

    dgrafx - I tried your solution and received:

    Security: The requested template has been denied access to C:\CFusionMX7\Verity\Collections\yourcollection.

    So does this mean that it is there?

    If it is, then I need to figure out why I am getting a 500 NULL when I try to set up the collection

    That means that the verity engine is denied access to that particular path and cannot save it there.

    you don't have access to this directory
    you need to speak with someone else @ godaddy who knows whats up with what features your account has -
    or get another host.
    I purchase domains from godaddy, but I don't believe I'd trust them to host anything important.
    I'd guess that you have several other tag restrictions as well.
    If you're looking for a cheap host while you're learning or for a personal site without a lot of traffic - there are cheap hosts who don't apply restrictions on you.
    an ex. of a cheap cf host would be
    keep in mind it's shared and not lightning fast - but it's as fast or probably faster than godaddy hosting.
    there are others - this is just one that comes to mind.

    Thank you so much for your help.  I have several ColdFusion accounts on another server.. I just have a big site that I need to move to a ColdFusion server, and do not necessarily want to use the one I have been using.  This big site currently has unlimited bandwidth, Excite for webservers, Hassan shopping cart... etc.  So I am looking for another place to move it to where I can create a search engine.. thats why I am looking at Verity.   Godaddy has a shopping cart program, but doesn't offer unlimited bandwidth.. (it may be something I have to give up).  I want to make sure I can replace a lot of the features I have with the old one.  Thanks for your help.
