Web designing on Cold Fusion Server




The creation of a Cold Fusion database requires the spawning of a data source using the server management console:


  1. Create a project.

  2. Navigate to the project.

  3. Choose “Dynamic Page” from the “Category” column and choose “ColdFusion” on the Dynamic Page column of the “General” tab.

  4. Select “Create.”

  5. Save the file as “index.cfm.”

  6. Title the document and keep the file open.

  7. Select “Modify Data Sources” in the Databases tab.

  8. Log in to the Administrator console.

  9. You should then see the “Data Sources” screen upon successfully logging in.


At this point, you require no further instruction. Simply provide the necessary information for your data source in each field and then submit.


Secure profile and Server Lockdown are two powerful security features of Cold Fusion. Consult the Cold Fusion website for related literature.
