My First Application on ColdFusion MX Server - Accessing Server Administration Panel from IIS
(Page 2 of 6 )

When ColdFusion MX 6.1 was installed, a directory was also installed in IIS, called the CFIDE as shown in this picture. If you browse the page, install.cfm (all pages created with ColdFusion have the extension, CFM, similar to HTML, XML, ASP, JSP, and so forth) you should get a message saying installation was successful. If you expand the node, Administrator, you could access the Administrator login page by browsing to the index.cfm.

CFide directory contents

Entering login information used at installation time, the following administration window can be invoked. It is too large to be shown in a 400 x 400 size picture format. It is assumed that you have this installed on your machine so that you can refer to it. The left side navigational frame gives access to various important items, such as server settings, data and services, debugging and logging, extensions and security. Presently we will not be using any of these features.
