    i've got 2 questions about cfmx 7
    first one is:
    i just don't get it to work cfmx with virtual hosts with apache.
    i've followed the steps of the officiel cfmx guid but i can't get it to work.
    it always search for the file in the [cfmx_root]/wwwroot/ and not in /var/server/www/[virtual_host/

    second 1 is there a db conecter for cfmx for mysql 5?
    i can't find it on google but maybe soms tweaking on conector for 4?

    greets kevin valk

    I've got Coldfusion MX7 running fine on my Fedora RC4 system with MySQL 4
    For your 1st question. Make SURE that you install Coldfusion MX7 (not MX7.1 as it's missing some things)

    For the MySQL question have a look here:

    I'm in the US at the moment, and my notes on how I did the install of Coldfusion MX7 are on my home PC.
    My home PC will go online later today, so if I have time, and if I can access it from this 'slow' connection , I will try to grab the info from it for you.

    I've never worked with ColdFusion before, so I'm not much of a help here...

    Ok.. I got access to my home PC, and here are the notes that I made some time ago on how I did the install (of MX6, and MX7) on my server.
    I'm using ISPconfig with Apache (and virtual apache servers) and Coldfusion MX7. ISPconfig is not needed to use Coldfusion with Apache.

    The notes are NOT for Fedora, but I did use them to install Coldfusion on my Fedora RC4 server.
    You might need to verify the Apache configuration directory, the Apache binary file directory, and the control file to start and stop Apache

    Let me know if something is not clear!

    mmmm thanks for your effort but the cfmx works great by me without your help. that wasn't the problem.
    the problem was that:
    virtual-server1 document root:/var/server/www/
    virtual-server2 document root:/var/server/www/
    coldfusion document root:/var/server/coldfusion/wwwroot

    now i upload info.cfm to virtual-server1 so it coms in
    /var/server/www/ and it is realy there

    so i go to the url
    then i got a 404 from my coldfusion server because he can't find the file. thats because he only look in the
    so i tought then i upload it to

    and gues what when i go then to
    i get the page. and i can even delete /var/server/www/
    and it stil works.
    (this is by every virtual server)

    is the problem clear but thanks a lot for your effot
    (i'm sorry that i wasn't clear my earlyer posts)

    I'm not sure why it's not working for you.. All I can say is that the way I've done my install all is working fine in any virtual directory that I've got any index.cfm in.

    Groetjes, en veel succes.
