Setting Up Your Workstation to Work With ColdFusion

The process of building ColdFusion web applications demands that you have the ability to test your applications locally. You will need a setup on the computer where Dreamweaver is installed that enables ColdFusion to process pages and to communicate with a database. Both a web server and ColdFusion Server, two distinct pieces of software, are needed. You’ll also need a database management system (DBMS). For Mac users: As of this writing, ColdFusion Server will not run on Mac, so you’ll need to set up for remote development.

Setting Up the Web Server (HTTP Server)

First, you will either need a web server running locally or a connection to a remote computer running web server software. Any of the three servers outlined in Chapter 26 will work for ColdFusion development: Internet Information Server (IIS), Personal Web Server (PWS), or Apache. See Chapter 26 for details on obtaining, installing, and configuring these web servers.
