I have a box with CF Developer installed that is using the default CF application server instead of IIS.  I want to mimic my production box which has a different root folder than the dev box.  For example, to browse to a page on my dev box I would use http:/localhost:8500/myfolder/site but in production i would use http://www.url.com/site.  I would like to make the myfolder to be the root folder so my relative mappings will work without having to have a different version of code for development and production.  Thanks for any advice!

Ike23,

First, don't use the built in CF webserver, use IIS instead.

Second then you can setup anything locally you like, like

http://test.url.com/site

It is already set up to use the CF webserver and it is working fine.  So there isn't a quick way to just tell CF that the root folder is C:/myfolder instead of C:/wwwroot?

If not do I still need to re-install CF to use IIS?  If not, how would I tell CF that I now want to use IIS instead of the default webserver?  Just use localhost instead of localhost:8500 probably right?  Thanks for any help.  The quicker the solution the better for me so if there is just a way to point CF to my new root folder that would be optimal.

Ike23,

You can't change it, install IIS, reinstall CF then you can do sites & virtual directories within IIS and leave CF alone.

I have IIS installed already.  Do I really need to reinstall CF or can I just use localhost instead of localhost:8500?

you need to reinstall CF or run the Web Server Config tool, under CF start menu.

I really can't justify reinstalling CF because of all the datasources and mappings etc.  So is there a way without reinstalling? Web Server Config tool you say?  I don't see anything like that in the CF Admin.  Is it a service?  I don't see CF when I go to Start>>Programs>> so can i open it through the command line?  Thanks!
