Coldfusion 10 404 Error Fix    
Thu, 15 Sep 2016 18:43

We recently upgraded one of our production servers to CF10. However when we finished the upgrade we started to encounter 404 errors when trying to access files which we knew existed and that had worked fine with CF9.


After checking all the windows folder security permissions and running the wsconfig tool we were still no closer to finding a solution.Then we found Steven Neilands article on stack overflow, which mentions a missing jakarta mapping. Sure enough once we created the missing mapping everything started to work.

To create the mapping:

  1. Open IIS and browse to the website you are working with.
  2. Right click and select "Add Virtual Directory"
  3. Give the mapping an Alias of "jakarta"
  4. Set the Physical Path to the wsconfig instance in the ColdFusion install directory CFUSION INSTALL\config\wsconfig{instance id}.

On our machine the instance id was "1" and so the mapping looked like this "C:\ColdFusion10\config\wsconfig\1".

Thanks to Steven Neiland for the information.
