WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

ColdFusion includes a server and a development toolset designed to integrate databases and Web pages. With ColdFusion Fusion, a user can enter a zip code on a Web page, and the server would query a database and present the results in the HTML form.

For extensive coverage of ColdFusion, please refer to /www.macromedia.com/software/.

WARNING:
We currently don't recommend updating H-Sphere to version 2.5 and up when there are 512 and more ColdFusion mappings on a Windows server (i.e., ColdFusion is turned on for more than 511 Winbox users)!

There are modifications in adding ColdFusion support depending on H-Sphere version:

 

H-Sphere 3.1 Beta 2+

  1. Buy ColdFusion license package.
  2. Install ColdFusion on your Windows box following the directions of the Wizard. (H-Sphere 2.5 and up supports 6.0, 6.1 and 7.0 ColdFusion versions).
  3. Install latest H-Sphere Winbox 3.1 Beta 2 or higher.

    When performing the step-by-step installation procedure, set also ColdFusion admin password via the interface after a logical win server have been added. To do this, Go to E. Manager -> Servers -> L.Servers and click the logical win server name. Enter the password in the Additional options section and click Set:

You may also install ColdFusion on a ready H-Sphere 3.1 Beta 2 and higher Winbox. For this, do the following:

  1. Perform steps 1 and 2 described above.
  2. Enter ColdFusion admin password via the interface.
  3. Run H-Sphere Update Wizard.

 

H-Sphere 3.0 and 2.5 branches

  1. Buy ColdFusion license package.
  2. Install ColdFusion on your Windows box following the directions of the Wizard. (H-Sphere 2.5 and up supports 6.0, 6.1 and 7.0 ColdFusion versions).
  3. Install latest H-Sphere Winbox 2.5 or higher.
  4. Edit the ...\HSphere.NET\bin\hsphere.config file.
    • For the H-Sphere 2.5 branch (deprecated since H-Sphere 3.1 Beta 2):
      Find the following section and set the ColdFusion admin password for the "password" parameter value and the ColdFusion site port for the 'port' parameter value:
      <resource name="cfdsn"
      type="Psoft.HSphere.Resources.IIS.ColdFusion.CFMXdsn"
      location="Resources.IIS.ColdFusion">
          <prop name="port" value="13961" />
          <prop name="password" value="CFAdminPasswd" />
      </resource>
    • For the H-Sphere 3.0 branch (deprecated since H-Sphere 3.1 Beta 2):
      Find the following section and set the ColdFusion admin password for the "password" parameter value and the ColdFusion site port for the 'port' parameter value:
      <resource name="cf_dsn_record"
      type="Psoft.HSphere.Resources.IIS.ColdFusion.CFMXdsn"
      location="Resources.IIS.ColdFusion, Version=2.51.965.2386, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null">
          <prop name="port" value="13961" description="ColdFusion service site port" />
          <prop name="password" value="CFAdminPasswd" description="ColdFusion admin password" />
      </resource>
  5. Run the installation file of your H-Sphere version to update H-Sphere with ColdFusion.
