In order to get "Search Friendly URLs" working in CFMX
under IIS, make sure you've done the following:
In the cfusionmx\wwwroot\web-inf\web.xml file, make sure
that you have a mapping pattern that will make sure
to parse content after the .cfm extension. For example:
By default, CFMX Updater 3 out to have mappings like this
in the web.xml file. If those mappings don't work, you
can try a generic mapping to have the servlet parse
You may need to run the "Remove_ALL_connectors.bat" file
located in the cfusionmx\bin\connectors. Try skipping
this step first (especially if you have a lot of virtual
servers already set up.) If things don't work the first
time, try running this batch file. After running this
batch file, you'll need to run the "IIS_connector.bat" in
the same directory to reset all the associations to JRun
Go to the Internet Service Manager MMC console and
pull up the properties for each virtual server (and
the default web server as well.) You'll
need to go to the "Home Directory" and click on the
"Configuration" button. Go through the list of ISAPI
applications loaded and look for anything calling the
"CFusionMX\runtime\lib\wsconfig\1\jrun.dll" filter (ie.
cfm, cfml, jsp, etc.) You'll need to edit the properties
for the filter and make sure that the "Check that file
exists" option is unchecked. If you check this option,
IIS will attempt to see if the template being called
exists—which it won't because it'll look for a file
with all that extra stuff after the .cfm extension in
If the jrun.dll is not associated with any templates,
you'll either need to delete the virutal server entry
and recreate it or simply manually add the associations
for any of the file types you may use. The key ones
are for the following extenstions: cfm, cfml, cfc, jsp.
Restart the computer or recycle the W3SVC and CFMX App Server
services and things should be working properly.
That should get you up and running.
For some reason I forget this everytime I set up a
CFMX box. I probably forget about it because I never
used to have to do anything special to get it working
in other ISAPI filters. Anyway, I hope you find this
