Setting Up a Data Source with ColdFusion Administrator

To use database information in our web pages, we must first create a connection to our database and specify a DSN. This is done using ColdFusion Administrator. As mentioned in Step 1, “The Basics,” ColdFusion Administrator is a browser-based tool for configuring your ColdFusion Server. To access ColdFusion Administrator, either choose Start, Programs, Macromedia ColdFusion MX Server, ColdFusion Administrator or enter http://localhost/CFIDE/administrator/ into your browser. When presented with the login screen, enter the password you specified during installation (see Figure 3.5).
