Is there any way I can back up my current Coldfusion 8 config (mappings, data sources, configurations) so that I can recover from a server failure quickly without having to manually input all these settings?

[FYI: Original Post Q_23664052, accepted answer has broken link]

Thanks!!

Hi,
You will need to only backup you neo-*.xml files located in \cfusion\lib.
These files can used to restore settings on any server.
To restore, Stop CF App Service, Overwrite files, Start CF App Service.

for example \lib\neo-query.xml stores your datasources.
Once restored, you will need to click on the datasource and save it again to re-map it.
