default index.cfm document not loading includes

I have a ColdFusion 11 and IIS 7.5 running on Windows 2008 R2 server.  When I load a page (http://mydomain.org/) using the default docment, index.cfm, the page loads but does not display the includes.  If I go to the same page using the full url (http://mydomain.org/index.cfm) the includes load.  This is not a problem when the default document is an html file, index.html loads the includes either way.

when you say it doesn't load the includes, do you mean you have a <CFINCLUDE> tag and the contents of that are not included in the display?   And no error message?   Did you try just putting  <h1>Hello World</h1> inside the top of the include with a CFEXIT to see if it opens the file at all?

Yes, I have a <cfinclude> tag and the contents do not display when I load the page as the default document. They do load when I load the page using the file name as part of the url.   I do not get any error messages.  I have not tried editing the include files because they load fine when I use the full URL. I think this must be an IIS/CF configuration issue.

When you view source when the default page loads.. Do you see strictly html or is it showing cf code too?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

when I view it as the default document I see <cfinclude template="includes/header.html">

when I view it as the full url I see the the <cfinclude> content

Yea that is what I figured.

I am not sure of the answer just yet.  I need to research but what is happening is iis is not handing off to CF when you do not specify the file name... it is just processing the document as an html file... proven by the fact that you see cf code when viewing source...

Oh!   It's not processing ANY coldfusion code, not just the CFINCLUDE.... none of the Coldfusion code is getting processed!

You need to go into IIS and designate / to be processed by Coldfusion.   I contacted Adobe support for Coldfusion on the adobe website and they helped me no charge.   I selected Installation Issue on the support form.    Sorry I wish I could remember how it was fixed exactly, but I am pretty sure it was in IIS.

IIS was definitely at fault.  After some searching I checked the Handler Mappings for my website.  I must have changed the cfmHandler for .cfm at some point because the Entry Type was set to Local instead of Inherited.  Everything works after setting it to "revert to parent."

I was set on the right track gdemaria but ultimately I found the answer on my own.
