Chapter 6. Deploying Applications > ColdFusion Archives

ColdFusion Archives

Macromedia introduced CAR files with the Archive and Deploy feature of ColdFusion 5 Enterprise. These ColdFusion Administrator (CFAM) tools allow administrators a simple way to quickly back up ColdFusion server configuration settings and application files, for archiving purposes or later deployment. The interface is very flexible, allowing you to create as many CAR files as you want and to choose which settings and files you want to archive. For example, you can choose to archive all of the ColdFusion server settings in one CAR file, or create independent CAR files for each setting (data sources, scheduled tasks, and so forth), or simply back up your application files or custom tags. Although these powerful tools were carried over into ColdFusion , they still remain one of the least-used administration features.

TIP

ColdFusion will not deploy any CAR files created in previous versions of ColdFusion. Macromedia recommends using the Migration stage of the Configuration Wizard to import settings of earlier ColdFusion versions, and then using the ColdFusion Archive and Deploy tools to create a ColdFusion CAR file.
