Hi all, I have an existing website on a Windows 2008 R2 production server. Currently it is only html & asp pages connecting to a back end SQL 2008 Server.
We are looking to add a new website which will be developed using ColdFusion 9 also connecting to the SQL 2008 Server.
What I'm trying to figure out is if I can install CF9 on the existing server, will my current site continue working or will I have to jump through hoops to make it work once CF is installed? Once installed do I use IIS to maintain my new website or will it need to be done in the CF software using a different port or something? I'm a total noob to CF do I'm a little lost.

Thanks in advance.

Installing CF9 on your server should not affect the existing ASP site as CF will only handle CF page types (i.e., *.cfm, *.cfc). Given that you are dealing with a production server you should certainly have a current backup in any event and I would recommend that you first do this on a development machine or server to get familiar with the process.

You add the new site in IiS  and you wil need to choose a new IP access if you have one, or use headers in the IIS setup.

The en point the new site to a different directy and install Coldfusion. All the fies in the new directory should have .cfm or .cfc extensions.. You can Also have htdmp files and asp files there.
