Multi CFML Engine Install - Extracting the ColdFusion 9 Connector for Apache

CFML Server, Server Admin

We are going to setup apache with virtual hosts to deliver multiple CFML engines.
To do so, we need to setup the cfml engine adapters / connectors, 1 by 1, and remove their connector code from the main httpd.conf and then include that connector string in the Vhosts themselves, while leaving any LOAD MODULE code in the main httpd.conf, because we only want to load the module once, and because you cannot load modules in a Virtual Host. This way, we can designate which sites use what connector. Lets do ColdFusion 9.

Multi CFML Engine Install - Editing Server.XML for Tomcat VHosts

CFML Server, Server Admin

To make editing your Server.xml easier, I'm going to show you a trick, so you can include another file, into your server.xml, so you can add Virtual Hosts (or other settings if you like) so you dont have to edit your Server.XML file so often. This can be useful for automation, or just locking down certain pieces of the server.xml, or just convenience.

Multi CFML Engine Install - speaking at cf.Objective() today

CFML Server, cfObjective, Conferences, Server Admin

Today is the day, I do my large presentation at cf.Objective(), why do I say large? Well, I bit off a lot when I submitted this topic... so trying to fit all of it in, in 50 mins, with time for questions, is almost impossible, so I am going to release a lot of the information on my blog, and I have made a mini website tacked onto my blog, so everyone attending my session have a great reference for after the session. Installing CF 9, CF 10, CF 11, Railo, and then getting them all to work through Apache, if you have that installed, if not, installing Apache, on Mac Linux or Window, is a large chunk of information, so I'm going to try and provide as much assistance with those topics, but my session will focus on how to bring them all together, while just highlighting items to be aware of while installing.

ColdFusion 11 Stumbles out the doors - CF 11 and CFB 3 are available

CFML Language, CFML Server, Chit Chat, Tools and IDEs

I know everyone has heard, ColdFusion Server 11, and ColdFusion Builder 3 have hit the shelves. I decided I wasn't going to make a big deal of it, because Friends don't let Friends use Beta QUALITY software in Production, right. I used the Betas, I installed them, heck, I'm even presenting on using CF 11 in my Multi Engine talk at cf.Objective(), but I feel like the Beta seemed a little rushed, and maybe the product could have spent a little more time cooking. Here's why.

Heartbleed - Heartbeats - and other Heart filling stories

CFML Server, cfObjective, Chit Chat, ColdBox, Conferences, OpenSSL, Server Admin

Yes, I still have a heartbeat, although my blog didn't have much of one for a while, that is true. The heart filling story, is that my mum and dad flew in the day after my last blog post, so I've been spending a lot of time with my parents, sharing experiences with their grandchildren. They live in New Zealand, so they do not visit too often, and my busy life got even busier. I have been busy, but you have to wait and see the fruit of my labor, more about that below. Of course, this week, you can't go far without talking about Heartbleed, so I have a few tips for those of you fighting Heartbleed too

Cold Fusion Builder - A seriously destructive bug makes it into Version 3

CFML Language, CFML Server, Techie Gotchas, Tools and IDEs

I mentioned in a previous blog post about some Bugs in CF Builder, although, overall, so much happier with the product than I was with previous versions. The quick file closing is amazing, something I would always dread, but that is gone now, so thats a big plus. I am also seeing less drag on the intellisense like features and lookups, so speed is improving on the whole, but some lil editor bugs here and there.

The big items that I hated in 2, is still in 3... and has caused some headache, heartache, and seriously pissed off several devs I know. I updated the bug today, since Adobe couldn't reproduce it, and I put a video on Youtube to explain the process and show the bug itself, at its destructive best.

CFML Language - Talking to Elishia Dvorak from Adobe + ColdFusion about the Edu + Intern Program

CFML Language, CFML Server, Online Interactive Learning

Recently on Twitter, there was some talk about today's ColdFusion evangelist, and who that is. Eventually we tracked down Elishia Dvorak @elishdvorak, who is Adobe and ColdFusion's US representative, who deals with Sales, and the new Education Program, as well as support and everything else. Once we had identified her, we gave her a few jabs about her number of tweets, and then let her be. Elishia posted a tweet
