How to intall Coldfusion 8 Enterprise on Windows Server 2003 with IIS

Does anybody have a good resource for inataling Coldfusion 8 Enterprise with IIS?

I installed IIS and Coldfusion but I'm getting an error when I try to view the Administrator page.

The error is: HTTP 400 Bad request. Page can not be found.

I saw that you had to set IIS to be able to run scripts and I thought I did that so I don't know what the problem is.

Can anybody help?

CF should have set everything up for you unless you told the install not to...

however you can run the webserver connector (cf_root/bin/connectors/iis_connector.bat) at any time to change or reconnect servers

I agree,

I have done this many times, and there should be nothing special you need to do. Assuming you had IIS installed before ColdFusion.

Try uninstalling and reinstalling ColdFusion or Sid's method.
Did you install CF in its default directory and properly specify where your default IIS web site is located on the server?  The "Page can not be found" error could be IIS trying to find the CF scripts in their default location but they're not there.

The problem was with the IIS Configuration.

I had to enable scripting options in IIS and change the Local path of the CF website.

Options Enabled
script source access
directory browsing
log visits
index this resource

I'm going to split the point since all of it was useful and correct.

Thank you so much.
