Verifying Server Setup

After completing the initial setup phase, it's important to test ColdFusion Server. Open a browser on your system and enter this URL:

http://127.0.0.1/CFIDE/Administrator/index.cfm

If all went well, you'll see the ColdFusion Administrator login page, as shown in Figure 3.3.

If you don't see the administration page, or your Web server software returns a 404 error (page not found), check the following:

  • Did you use the default installation paths when installing the software? If you specified a directory or folder other than the default, the Administrator page will be at a location other than http://127.0.0.1/CFIDE/Administrator/index.cfm.

  • Did the installation fully complete? In some cases, other programs on your computer—such as anti-virus software—might cause the installation to hang. Disable the offending program and start the ColdFusion installation again.

  • Is your Web server running? ColdFusion absolutely requires that your Web server software be enabled.

That's about it. It's a deceptively simple setup—even easier than installing your average Web browser. Don't get overconfident on me, though. You still have 19 days to go, and there are more complex issues ahead!
