process files without .cfm extensions as coldfusion

8 Comments1 Solution623 ViewsLast Modified:

I have a dedicated windows server that currently hosts websites that are coded in .asp, .php and .cfm.

In addition, the server has a working coldfusion server.

All websites work fine, however, 2 of them are due to re-coded in coldfusion and they have .php and asp file extensions.

I would like to preserve the existing asp and php filenames and get them to execute as cold fusion files rather than as .php and .asp files. Each file will have all of the php and asp code stripped and purely have html & coldfusion code.

How can I get specific websites to interpret the .asp and .php files and process them through coldfusion. Note I do not want all .php and .asp files on the server to be processed as coldfusion, just the files on two websites.  I have had a problem before where all  php files were mapped to coldfusion and it made a lot of websites stop working.

Many thanks,
