CF18 install for iis

Installing CF18 under Windows 10. Choosing the External Server option, the install package drops me off with “Installation Complete.” Then it tells me I “may now deploy Adobe Coldfusion 2018 to your application server.”

I do not get the usual dialog box within the installation routine that allows me to configure my servers (IIS). So, where do I go? What do I further install to get up and running?

The installation routine created the folder, ColdFusion2018, which has a text file, an ear file, a war file, and two html files in it. There is no directory structure. Coldfusion Administrator is not installed. I’ve got nothing! I could unzip the ear or war files, but this would not actually configure the server, right?

Thanks!

John

Guys, my problem exists because I am attempting to install anew on a Windows 10, 64 bit laptop. I have a perfectly good, running CF server on my 32 bit, Windows 7 desktop. What I need is to install a 32 bit version of SQLServer there. It seems that no such animal exists for download anymore. THAT was why I’m trying to install ColdFusion2018 in the first place.

Did you really mean sql server or cf? If CF, that’s true: it no longer supports 32bit.

Adding to Paul’s comment, I would wonder if in fact you may say  I only had one option”, which would mean that the installer thought that cf (in the server form) was ALREADY installed. Have you checked that, Jack?

Besides looking for a coldfusion2018 folder (which could have been deleted without uninstalling), look also for cf in the windows services panel. And there may be a registry key that the installer looks to in order to know if cf was already installed.

Sounds like you mistakenly installed the Java JEE version of ColdFusion.  It’s now waiting for you to deploy the CF WAR/EAR to your Java application server.  You need to uninstall and reinstall making sure to install the Stand-alone server version.

Paul, this is exactly the fork I’ve been laboring over. The “standalone” option creates a server under the ColdFusion2018 directory structure, which is not what I want. The JEE options installs coldfusion and lets me configure my iis servers. I truly hope I’m not misremembering this process, but this is the path I think I’ve always taken. Only, in the past, the installer brought up the deploy/configure module.

The JEE path dropped me off with this:

“You have successfully completed the first step in installing Adobe ColdFusion 2018. You may now deploy Adobe ColdFusion2018 to your application server. Once you have deployed to your application server, you can continue by loggin in to the Configuration Wizard at (path to CF Administrator).”

I don’t have a copy of wsconfig.exe on my system. I don’t know how to proceed.

Thanks!

Jack, where then ARE YOU wanting cf to be installed, if not to the cf2018 folder? (and you do realize you could tell it to install to any drive and folder,  right?)

I’m wondering: are you focused more on where you want you cf code to go? That would NOT typically be the cf2018 folder.
