This is more of a quick reminder for myself. Hopefully someone else will find it useful as well... If you have multiple instances of ColdFusion running on a server and one of those starts to runaway with the processor you just need to kill it and move on, right? But, what if you what to know which instance it was? If you don't have something like FusionReactor watching your CF Instances then a quick way to determine which instance is the trouble maker is to see the config file being used … [Read more...]
Increase IIS Worker threads for Coldfusion 9.01
While using IIS6 for ColdFusion 9 (or ColdFusion 9.0.1), owing to heavy load, if you encounter performance issues, you may increase the number of worker threads. Go to the directory cf_root\runtime\lib\wsconfig\1. Note: In multiserver scenarios, the location is jrun_root/lib/wsconfig/1. 1 indicates a single IIS website. If you have configured multiple IIS websites, the number can change accordingly. Open the file jrun_iis6_wildcard.ini (jrun_iis7_wildcard.ini if you use IIS 7). … [Read more...]
A Picture A Day – Day 4
Day four. Almost an entire work week keeping moving on the site. We had some Coldfusion woes today at the office, and some Websphere woes, and some programmer woes, and... well people and technology can be difficult. Let's leave it at that. But, if anyone out there has any suggestions for troubleshooting an "Axis fault: Connection refused: connect" error when trying to call a coldfusion web service via <cfinvoke> over https, then I'm all ears! It's not a firewall (there is none … [Read more...]
CSS – Long URL
This is an older post that did not make it through to the new site when I converted to WordPress. Hopefully this will still be relevant to someone out there. CSS and the Long URL: I was working on a webmail client a while back and had been having a few design problems. Sometimes when you subscribe to a blog, forum or usergroup the e-mails from those respective subscriptions will include an "unsubscribe url". This Blog does. Now this URL can be really long and, in a normal email client … [Read more...]
Time to learn CFCs once and for all!
I've been putting this off for a while. I'm not sure why, maybe it was just laziness. Anyway, I feel it's time to buckle down and finally learn to create and use CFCs correctly... You know, to unleash the power, so to speak. Ok, I know now you are thinking I'm talking about chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) but I'm not. What I actually am trying to get a firm grasp on are ColdFusion Components (CFCs). What are these, you ask? From the Coldfusion Live Docs A ColdFusion component (CFC) is a file … [Read more...]

CFX_PFPro_Java Download – Finally
I've been pulling my hair out for a few days looking for the Coldfusion CFX tag for PayFlow Pro. I'm moving/upgrading a customer's webstore and the old cfx tag would not work on the new server's CF installation. So I had to get a more current tag. Only, PayPal no longer supplies the Coldfusion SDK and they don not have access to any older versions!?!?! But, thanks to a very helpful person on the CFWebstore yahoo group I was directed to Apok-Technology. They had a copy of the tag and supplied … [Read more...]
