Appendix F. ColdFusion MX 7 Directory Structure
IN THIS APPENDIX
ColdFusion MX 7 Directory Structure 1323
Macromedia ColdFusion MX 7 and its supporting files and systems are installed in a directory structure on your server. The default is a directory named c:\cfusionmx7 on Windows, and /opt/coldfusionmx7 on Unix and Linux, but you may specify an alternate directory during the installation process.
The following is a list of the directories in ColdFusion MX 7, with a description of what they contain and do. Special files and other points of interest are noted as well.
The format of the ColdFusion directory structure is that of a Java EAR file, since ColdFusion is deployed as a J2EE application.
If you are using ColdFusion deployed on an external J2EE Server (such as IBM WebSphere), the directory structure will be slightly different from what is listed below, since ColdFusion is deployed as a WAR file beneath the Web root in a directory named cfusion. All files and directories will be there except the wwwroot itself.
While you may tweak and modify many of the contents of the directories listed here, realize that you do so at your own risk. Make sure to first make backups of any files that you want to play with.
