Ok this is going to be a newbie question but anyone that can take the time to explain “check list” would be much appreciated!

I have been using ColdFusion at work now for a little while, the good thing is its all setup in the network and connected for us. Now our boss has given our department an old testing server which he has stated we can do what we want with as long as we don’t hassle the network team too much etc.

Therefore, we have decided to finally try and set up a real testing area (one which we can put on what we want) for ColdFusion.

We have been given a copy of the following (below) but all we have is an empty server not on the network at the moment. Our small team although have worked with cf don’t have any idea how to set it up a server cus cf has always been done for us. We are keen to learn and want to know everything we have to.

What we have:
Windows business server
ColdFusionMX 7 Professional
SQL Server 2000 Pro
IIS???
----new software never used
FusionDebug:
Also what about blue dragon would love to play around with this!

The install itself is easy.  Run the EXE after you have the server built and you'll be good to go.  After setup, run http://127.0.0.1/cfide/administrator to configure to your liking.  Leave FusionDebug to the side for a few days until after you have CF setup, then play with that - it's a debugger type program for CF that'll help you tweak code / settings / whatever for optimization --- no need to get bogged down in the beginning, though.

Blue Dragon is a free CFML interpriter. If you have CF, there is no need for this, as CF is a CFML interpriter as well.
