Coldfusion debugging outside of the administrator?

Posted on 2007-10-01

Hi All,

The coldfusion administrator has options to show the developer the debugging information, just by choosing a few options in some of the panels. The primary way to get it done is by providing the IP of your local machine.

Is there a way or somekinda plugin to display the debugging information to the developer, if the developer does not have access to the CF administartor panel. Lets say that my code is being hosted on an external host and I don't have access to the admin panel and their developers.

I want all the information thats normally displayed through the admin panel options. Is this possible? Or do I have to manually code/retrieve each of the variables?

    Have you tried cfsetting?

    <cfsetting showDebugOutput="Yes">

    Obviously if debugging has been disabled in the CF Administrator, which is often the case on production sites, this will not work.
