Schedule Task ColdFusion 5

Hello,
  I need to set up a scheduled task in ColdFusion 5 administrator.  I am having trouble with the URL.  The task that I want to run is located on d://websites/teams/queries/associates.cfm, how do I set up the URL?  I have tried several variations but none have worked.

You need to use the URL, not the directory path.

What is your webroot?

If your webroot is d://websites/teams/

Then your URL would be

  www.yourdomainname.com/queries/associates.cfm

The webroot is: C:\INETPUB\WWWROOT\

Thanks for your assistance this is all new to me.

Hopefully, one of those two paths is not accurate.. because your associates.cfm file would not be within your web root, unless you have a mapping to /queries or something?


Web root...
 C:\INETPUB\WWWROOT\

Path to page...
d://websites/teams/queries/associates.cfm

If you were to open associates.cfm in a web browser, what URL would you use?  That would be the one you need...

If you can't do it, you need to move it somewhere under wwwroot.

I'm working from a restore of our development server that was set up years before I started with little documentation.   I am unable to open it in a web browser so I will have to move it.  Thanks
