Servers are not my strong point - and I might be trying to do the impossible. To know that would be very helpful !
Set up :
Windows 7 PC, 64 bit
Coldfusion Development server. (localhost:8500 url address)
XAMPP/Apache Server. (localhost url address )
Both Apache and Coldfusion are set up within Dreamweaver and I have applications running on each, independently.
My objective is to create a link/handshake from an application running on Coldfusion to a module (written in Python) which is running as a XX.cgi page on the Apache Server. The XX.cgi module would deliver the output to the application user in those occasions when it is called - no reverse link/handshake from Apache to Coldfusion required.
Backing up for a moment - The application is 80% coldfusion - but I would like to 'subcontract' some parts to Python - which I think coldfusion finds hard to handle . That's the concept - and I'm not sure of the feasibility .
I have tried the following example to test:
1.. Created a page XXX.html on the coldfusion server (localhost:8500/)
2.. Created a page YYY.html on the apache server.(localhost)
3... XXX.html has a link to YYY.html on the apache server. The link is href="../../../localhost/htdocs/PizzaKitchen/YYY.html"
4.. On clicking the link I arrive at localhost:8500/localhost/htdocs/PizzaKitchen/YYY.html ----- with an error message as per attached image
Must have missed something or am trying to do the impossible.
