    Hi,

    We recently installed plesk11.0.9 on windows server 2008. We are trying to integrate coldfusion 9 to plesk.
    But we cant see coldfusion feature installed in the plesk 'install and update component' option. Has anyone
    integrated coldfusion into plesk? Please advise.

    Thanks

    Yes, I just got it working this week, ColdFusion 9.0.2 and Plesk 11.0.9.

    A couple of gotcha's:

    - Install ColdFusion with IIS6 compatibility; it won't play nice with Plesk if you install it natively in IIS7, unfortunately.
    - Make sure that you have ColdFusion up and running under the IIS default site "Default Web Site". This is the way Plesk intefaces with ColdFusion. Don't use a secure connection (https) to the ColdFusion administrator, or at least set up an unsecured one as well so Plesk can talk to it. You don't say much about your exact problem, but what you do say points to this issue.
    - If you run a 64bit ColdFusion with Plesk you'll likely have some trouble. I wrote a thread about this week in this forum in the How to-section: http://forum.parallels.com/showthread.php?t=262903.

    Once you have it working, it works pretty well. But unfortunately Parallels stopped documenting their ColdFusion support as of Plesk 9.5.5. They also did not update Plesk to work natively with ColdFusion 9 under IIS7 or with ColdFusion 10 at all. Hopefully they'll give us ColdFusion people some love in the near future :)

    Let me know if you still run into any issues, I spend days on figuring it all out and I'll be happy to help!

    Regs,
    Andor

    ISAPI Handler error for non-coldfusion sites running under plesk

    Thanks muchly for your advise. I have read your thread and that absolutely works now.
    But to add one more thing, we had another non-coldfusion site running on plesk which was throwing the ISAPI handler error.
    We managed to get this fixed by adding another application pool on plesk under 'websites and domain' --. Advanced settings' for the other webiste and that absolutely works now. Cheers

    Enabling Coldfusion Support

    Thanks for the information so far. I got Coldfusion 9.0.1 installed with 11.0.9 on Win 2k8r2 and so far nothing seems broken, with IIS6 metabase compatibility enabled.

    I added Coldfusion support to a test subscription, but when I try and access a test cfm file in the httpdocs directory of the new site, it looks for the file in c:\inetpub\vhosts\default\htdocs and fails, but for a static file, it finds it in the right place.

    What's causing this to happen? How can I fix this?

    Thanks in advance.
