The CF documentation here shows a screenshot of the “Enable Whitespace Management” setting under Server Settings > Settings in CFAdmin.

But it’s missing in my CFAdmin.  I’m running version 2016.0.05.303689 and here’s a screenshot:

If your using a WAR then its a known rather annoying limitation: https://tracker.adobe.com/#/view/CF-4198437

How did you install ColdFusion? Do you use WAR-deployment?When you are looking at a “regularly” installed ColdFusion and save  the CFAdmin page once with set checkbox “Enable Whitespace Management” and once without the set checkbox you’ll see one tiny difference in the file cfusionlibneo-runtime.xmlI am pretty sure I saw Whitespace Management working when this parameter was set to true manually on a war deployment. Problem is, this parameter is overwritten when tha page is saved in CFAdmin or the package is deployed again.

Yes, it’s a WAR on a web app server/container.  I just tried it, and I think it’s working, thanks!
