What is CFIDE?

Postby August » 04. March 2008 20:42

Hello:

I’ve installed the upgrade version to 1.6.6a. I looked in the log and found the below (before and after the upgrade) and still getting 404 error. What is CFIDE? :?

[Thu Feb 28 14:06:24 2008] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: C:/xampp/htdocs/CFIDE
[Sat Mar 01 14:56:17 2008] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: C:/xampp/htdocs/CFIDE


Greatly appreciate it if I could get some pointers on how to correct this problem. I really need this program to work on my site.

Many thanks.

Which URI did you use in your browser? (You are using "http://localhost/CFIDE" in your browser?)

What is CFIDE?

Your browser tries to access the URI "http://localhost/CFIDE" but this file/directory doesn't exists.

Maybe "http://localhost/CFIDE" is a wrong image/css link in your html sourcecode?

I really need this program

Which program?

Hello:

Thank you for your prompt reply. :)


Which URI did you use in your browser? (You are using "http://localhost/CFIDE" in your browser?)


I don't even know what CFIDE is. I'm using Dreamweaver and trying to view my site on the laptop as a local server. I use localhost or the actual site name -- http://localhost/


Your browser tries to access the URI "http://localhost/CFIDE" but this file/directory doesn't exists.

Maybe "http://localhost/CFIDE" is a wrong image/css link in your html sourcecode?


If it doesn't exist, why would the program acknowledge it?


The program I need to use is XAMPP -- it would save a lot of time with "live" updates on the net.

So you are not using a browser. Instead you are using Dreamweaver and Dreamweaver is the program which want open the URI "http://localhost/CFIDE"?

In this case you should find an answer in the Dreamweaver manual/FAQ/knowledebase/support...

(Sorry, I don't know anything about Dreamweaver.)

Hi:

Huh?

I am using a browser to view site pages. Dreamweaver is the program that I use to design the site. Afterwards, I send it to the browser for review. I had all of my pages in html format with no problems and was able to view in the browser. It was suggested that I change all of pages with php extension for dynamic features. XAMPP is the program for this purpose.

I don't understand.... why would Dreamweaver call up CFIDE? CFIDE never shows up in the browser at all! What shows up in the browser is:
http://localhost/index.php

What shows up in the browser is: http://localhost/index.php

And you can't see anything if you open this URI in your broswer?

[Sat Mar 01 14:56:17 2008] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: C:/xampp/htdocs/CFIDE

This is exacly the timestamp from your browser access?

CFIDE never shows up in the browser at all!

Not in the browser output. But maybe you can find this URI in the sourcecode view of your browser.

Afterwards, I send it to the browser for review.

Or this only happens, if you use the browser review function in Dreamweaver. Does this also happens, if you open "http://localhost/" directly in your browser?

why would Dreamweaver call up CFIDE?

After a short Google search I only can say: This directory is related to ColdFusion and/or Dreamweaver.

Hi:

I to take a break from this for a day it is really eating up a lot of my time with frustration.

"What shows up in the browser is: http://localhost/index.php"

And you can't see anything if you open this URI in your broswer?


That's correct with the 404 error message. I've messed around with it a bit more and now the XAMPP started page begins.



"[Sat Mar 01 14:56:17 2008] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] File does not exist: C:/xampp/htdocs/CFIDE"

This is exacly the timestamp from your browser access?


That's correct -- this came from the error log.



"CFIDE never shows up in the browser at all!"

Not in the browser output. But maybe you can find this URI in the sourcecode view of your browser.


Hmmm.... never thought of that... when it shows up again, I'll take a look.





"Afterwards, I send it to the browser for review."

Or this only happens, if you use the browser review function in Dreamweaver. Does this also happens, if you open "http://localhost/" directly in your browser?


It did, but that could be because it was calling up the same file from within the browser.


"why would Dreamweaver call up CFIDE?"

After a short Google search I only can say: This directory is related to ColdFusion and/or Dreamweaver.


Hmmm.... I have very limited knowledge about this or how ColdFusion works.


The other day I did look into the http-d conf file and noticed a WEBDav -- have no idea what that is -- it is available in Dreamweaver. Can I use this somehow???

DavLockDB "C:/xampp/tmp/DavLock"
Alias /webdav "C:/xampp/webdav"

<Directory "C:/xampp/webdav">
Dav On
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
AuthName DAV-upload
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile "C:/xampp/security/htpasswd.webdav"

<LimitExcept GET HEAD OPTIONS>
require valid-user
</LimitExcept>
</Directory>
BrowserMatch "Microsoft Data Access Internet Publishing Provider" redirect-carefully
BrowserMatch "MS FrontPage" redirect-carefully
BrowserMatch "^WebDrive" redirect-carefully
BrowserMatch "^WebDAVFS/1.[0123]" redirect-carefully
BrowserMatch "^gnome-vfs/1.0" redirect-carefully

There is no index.php in your "\xampp\htdocs" directory. In which directory did your editor save the files?

Hmmm.... I have very limited knowledge about this or how ColdFusion works.

Hmmm, why did you work with this software, if you have no knowledge about it?

BTW: You should really ask your question in a Dreamweaver support forum. Or find something in the Dreamweaver manual, how to setup Dreamweaver and Apache to work together.

Hello Again:

I'm sorry, but there seems to be some assumptions:

There is a index.php and I've put one in virtual host, etc. This has been the problem, unfortunately.

Dreamweaver has the ability to use ColdFusion and many other applications, I've never used it nor have a need for it. It appears that I'm learning about Apache too which seems to go with the territory....

DW is a very popular program and I can't imagine that I'm the only person in the world that has encountered a problem with using Apache. Macromedia/Dreamweaver doesn't have anything on this related problem which is why I'm here.

ADDED NOTE:

The XAMPP htdocs page comes up fine when going through Dreamweaver -- it just doesn't show my site, however.

I still don't think the issue is necessarily a DW problem. Some kind of permission problem with Apache that won't allow me to see my site pages, which is the real issue.

It is. You will NEVER find a solution, if you try to find an Apache problem. Without Dreamweaver and Coldfusion Apache and Xampp runs with no hassle (as you could see in localhost/xampp).

Hello and Thank You:

Let me get this straight.... :?

Are you saying that I may need to add Cold Fusion? There is a basic program that came with DW, but I didn't load with DW because I've never needed it for the 2 years that I've been using the DW program.

If you think that it will help, I'll try loading CF and will get back with folks. Perhaps this is the answer. Maybe it will help others who have run into this problem too.

Hello:

DW looks for CFIDE if the Testing Server is set to the default of None or ColdFusion and because you have not configured the Testing Server correctly, it is looking for CFIDE in the xampp htdocs localhost folder.


In DW , I only used the PHP server for testing and never bothered with CF. The instructions for set-up in XAMPP clearly stated PHP server, not CF. The CFIDE file, btw, was found in the error log. I've now loaded CF to see if this will make a difference somehow.

I had followed the other suggestions and did look through posts. To no avail, nothing had resolved the problem to get DW & XAMPP to work properly which is why I made a post.

I'd like to use XAMPP and I feel that this shouldn't be a problem with DW. The set-up and configuration for XAMPP seems pretty straight-forward which has been frustrating -- what I've been dealing with makes no sense. Perhaps, I'm missing something very simple..., but I've rechecked line-for-line and word-for-word on configurations to get the programs to work. :?

I'll reconfigure things once again, play around with it and see what happens. Hopefully, a breakthrough will occur -- that would be really nice!
:)

Again, thanks everyone for your suggestions. I'm very appreciative for the input. I'll keep everyone posted.
