Installing Cold Fusion and Cold Fusion Studio


Preparing to Install Cold Fusion


Before getting started, you need to know that Cold Fusion is extremely easy to
install and configure. As long as the basic hardware and software requirements are
correctly in place, installing Cold Fusion should take just a few minutes.





NOTE Cold Fusion comes in two distinct versions, a workgroup version
and a professional version. The biggest difference between them is the types
of databases with which they can interact. The workgroup version cannot interact
with client-server databases like Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and Sybase. The professional
version does not have these limitations. The evaluation version on the accompanying
CD is the professional version of the Cold Fusion Application Server.



Installing Cold Fusion involves the following steps:


1. Verify that you have the correct hardware.



2. Select an operating system, and ensure that it is configured correctly.



3. Select a web server, and ensure that it is installed and is functioning
correctly.



4. Perform the actual installation.



5. Test the installation.

The first half of this chapter walks you through each of these steps.

Hardware Requirements


The Cold Fusion Application Server runs on two different types of hardware, Intel-based
hardware (capable of running 32-bit Windows) and Sun SPARC hardware running Solaris.



Intel-Based Hardware  Cold Fusion runs under both Windows 95 and
Windows NT (on Intel hardware only). The minimum recommended hardware is a Pentium
class machine running at 100 MHz.


If you'll be using Windows 95, you should have no less than 32MB of RAM; if you'll
be using Windows NT, 64MB of RAM is the minimum. Additional memory will enhance system
performance, especially if running Windows NT.


Your computer should have 50MB of disk space available after the web server is
installed and configured. Obviously, as you create applications on the server, the
amount of disk space needed will increase.


The computer also needs to be connected to a network. Usually this is via a network
interface card (or NIC) installed into the computer on an Ethernet or Token Ring
network. A modem can also be used to connect the computer to a network.



Sun SPARC Hardware  Cold Fusion requires a minimum of 64MB of RAM,
but 128MB is recommended.


Your computer should have 60MB of disk space available after the web server is
installed and configured. Obviously, as you create applications on the server, the
amount of disk space needed will increase.


The computer also needs to be connected to a network. Usually this is via a network
interface card (or NIC) installed into the computer on an Ethernet or Token Ring
network. A modem can also be used to connect the computer to a network.



Selecting a Hardware Platform  Cold Fusion runs on two very different
hardware platforms, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. So which is right
for you? Unfortunately, there is no right or wrong answer, but here are some points
to consider when making this decision:



  • Almost all of your Cold Fusion code will run seamlessly on either platform. It
    is therefore possible to change your hardware platform at a later date without having
    to rewrite all of your code.



  • Sun SPARC hardware is considerably more expensive than Intel hardware, and you
    do not have the selection of vendors and products that you have with Intel-based
    hardware.



  • Intel-based hardware runs 32-bit Windows (Windows 95 or Windows NT), which is
    easier to install and manage.



  • There is far more Intel hardware expertise readily available than Sun SPARC hardware
    expertise.



  • The hardware you have available, and any existing expertise, are primary factors
    to consider when selecting a hardware platform.



  • Sun SPARC hardware generally performs better than Intel-based hardware, and is
    more scalable.

An evaluation version of the Windows version of the Cold Fusion Application Server
is on the accompanying CD. If you would like to obtain a copy of the Solaris version,
contact Allaire at 617-761-2000, or at http://www.allaire.com.

Selecting an Operating System


Once you have selected the hardware on which you will run your Cold Fusion Application
Server, the next step is to select an operating system. The choices available to
you are going to be based on the hardware platform you selected.



Operating Systems for Intel-Based Hardware  You have two operating
system choices when running Intel-based hardware: Windows 95 (any references to Windows
95 apply to Windows 98 as well) and Windows NT. Windows 95 does not come with a built-in
web server, but Windows NT (version 4 or later) does.


Windows 95 is a great testing and development platform, and could also be used
for very low volume web sites. Live production web servers should run on Windows
NT, not Windows 95. Windows NT was designed to handle greater system loads, and is
far more scalable then Windows 95.





NOTE Cold Fusion will run under both Windows NT Server and Windows NT Workstation.
The practical differences between using Server and Workstation are the number of
concurrent connections that your web server (and thus Cold Fusion) will be able to
handle. Windows NT Workstation limits the number of connections to ten, but Windows
NT Server does not have this limitation.



To run web services, your operating system must have the TCP/IP protocol installed.
You may do this during operating system installation, or once the operating system
is already installed. To verify that TCP/IP is installed (and to install it if it
is not), do the following:


  • Windows 95 users can right-click the Network Neighborhood icon on the Windows
    95 desktop and select the Properties option to display the network properties
    dialog box, shown in Figure 3.1. The TCP/IP protocol should be shown in the Configuration
    tab. If it is not present, click the Add button to install it.



  • Windows NT users can right mouse click the Network Neighborhood icon and select
    Properties (or select Network from the Control Panel if you are using NT 3.5x)
    to display the network properties dialog box, shown in Figure 3.2. If it is not present,
    click the Add button to install it.

Fig. 3.1 The Windows 95 Control Panel applet shows all installed clients,
protocols, and adapters.


Fig. 3.2 The Windows NT Control Panel applet's Protocols tab displays
the installed protocols.




For your web server to function properly, TCP/IP must be installed and configured
properly, as must DNS and router settings. Refer to your operating system documentation
for details, or contact your network administrator or Internet Services Provider
(ISP).





[lozenge]  See Chapter 2, "Introduction to Cold Fusion,"
p. 15



To verify that TCP/IP is installed and operating properly, do the following:


1. Open an MS-DOS or command prompt window by selecting that option from
the Start, Programs menu.



2. Type PING localhost or PING 127.0.0.1 at the DOS prompt. You should see
a series of replies echoed onto the screen, as shown in Figure 3.3. If the replies
are shown, TCP/IP is installed and working; if not, it is not.

Fig. 3.3 The Ping command may be used to check that the TCP/IP protocol
is installed and running.





NOTE IP address 127.0.0.1 is a special address that always refers to
your own computer, regardless of what the actual IP address is. The host name localhost
is the host name for this special IP address.



Another good way to test that TCP/IP is installed and working is to install a
web browser on the server, and try to use it to access other web sites and pages.
If you can browse the web, or access other Intranet pages, then TCP/IP is working
properly.





NOTE Cold Fusion only supports Windows NT on Intel-based hardware. There is
currently no version of Cold Fusion for Windows NT on other hardware, such as DEC
Alpha.



Operating Systems for Sun SPARC Hardware  If you have opted to
use Sun SPARC hardware, the operating system you will use is Sun's Solaris. Cold
Fusion requires that you be running Solaris version 2.5.1 or later, and that Solaris
Patch 101242-11 or later be installed.


For more information about Sun's SPARC hardware and the Solaris operating system,
visit the Sun Internet site at http://www.sun.com.

Selecting a Web Server


Your next task is to select a web server. As explained in Chapter 2 web servers
are software programs, and you must select a web server that runs on the hardware
platform and operating system that you already selected.


Cold Fusion supports several different web servers, allowing you to choose the
server that best suits your needs. Table 3.1 lists the supported web servers and
the platforms on which they are supported, as well as the URL to visit to obtain
additional product information.

Table 3.1  Cold Fusion-Supported Web Servers





























Product URL Platforms
Apache http://www.apache.org Solaris
Microsoft IIS http://www.microsoft.com.iis Windows NT, Windows 95
Netscape Enterprise http://www.netscape.com Windows NT, Solaris Server
O'Reilly WebSite Pro http://website.ora.com Windows NT, Windows 95




So which web server is right for you? Unfortunately there is no right or wrong
answer here, and asking this question of a group of webmasters is likely to elicit
strong and differing opinions. Obviously, if you already have a web server installed,
or have experience with any particular product, you are best off starting with what
you already have or know.


Having said that, here are some points to consider when picking your web server:


  • Apache is the most popular web server on the public Internet. It has a solid
    and proven track record, and is available at no charge from the Apache web site.
    It is, however, far more difficult to install and configure than any of the other
    servers listed here. It is supported online by the user community.



  • Microsoft IIS (and its Windows 95 counterpart, Microsoft Personal Web Server)
    are available from Microsoft at no charge. In fact, IIS comes bundled with NT version
    4 or later. IIS uses the user lists and security options in NT itself, not requiring
    you to maintain yet another list of users passwords and rights. This also means that
    to have a web server login, IIS users must also have a network login.



  • Netscape Enterprise Server is the latest addition to a long line of popular commercial
    web servers. Evaluation versions are available from the Netscape web site. Enterprise
    Server runs on both Windows NT and Sun Solaris, and the administration is all web-based.
    Enterprise Server maintains its own user and rights list, and does not integrate
    its security with the operating system.



  • O'Reilly WebSite Pro is extremely popular with ISPs and companies that offer
    hosting services. It is inexpensive and extremely easy to configure and maintain.
    An evaluation version is available at the O'Reilly web site.

Cold Fusion supports all of the servers listed above, and the code you write is
portable among these servers. This means that you can choose one option now, and
then change your mind later on. While this will require you to reconfigure your web
server itself, from a Cold Fusion standpoint very little will need to be changed.





TIP The version of Microsoft IIS that is bundled with Windows NT 4 is IIS
version 2. If you have decided to use IIS as your web server, it will be well worth
your while to upgrade to IIS version 3. You will gain many new features, including
the ability to use Cold Fusion pages as default documents. To download the upgrade,
visit the IIS page on Microsoft's web site at http://www.microsoft.com/iis.








NOTE The list given only has the web servers that Cold Fusion supports using
server APIs. Many other web servers are supported via the Cold Fusion CGI interface,
but they are not listed here. As explained in Chapter 2, the CGI interface to Cold
Fusion should never be used if there is the option of using the server APIs.



What's on the CD-ROM


The accompanying CD-ROM contains a 30-day evaluation version of the Professional
version of Cold Fusion 3.1 Application Server. This is a complete version of Cold
Fusion, and it comes complete with all the documentation and examples. The only restriction
is that it will only run for 30 days. This should be enough time for you to evaluate
Cold Fusion, and even start writing applications.


Once you have determined that Cold Fusion will work for you, you will need to
contact the Allaire Sales Department at 617-761-2000 to order a live copy of Cold
Fusion. You can install the live version right over the evaluation version, your
applications will be saved, and any settings will still be accessible to you.


The evaluation version of the Cold Fusion Application Server is saved in the Evaluation
directory on the CD-ROM as CF31PROEVAL.EXE.

Installation Checklist


You're about to install Cold Fusion. But before going so, run through this checklist
to make sure your server is ready:


  • Verify that the hardware you are installing Cold Fusion onto meets the requirements
    listed above.



  • Verify that a supported operating system is installed, and that the TCP/IP protocol
    is installed and working. (See above for details on how to test this.)



  • Check to see if the operating system vendor has published patches or service
    packs. If any do exist, you might want to consider applying them before proceeding.



  • Make sure you have installed a supported web server. See Table 3.1 for a list
    of servers supported by Cold Fusion.



  • Verify that the web server is working. The simplest way to do this is to load
    a browser on the server and go to http://localhost. If the default home page comes
    up, the web server is working; if not, it is not.



  • Make sure that you are logged in with administrative rights (this step does not
    apply to Windows 95 machines).



  • Make sure that there is sufficient disk space after the web server is installed.

Once you have checked off the items in this list, you'll be ready to install Cold
Fusion.

Installing Cold Fusion


The Cold Fusion installation program walks you through the entire installation
process, and usually even detects which web server you have installed and configures
Cold Fusion accordingly.





NOTE The installation instructions detailed here are for the Windows versions
of Cold Fusion only, as that is the only version bundled with this book. If you have
downloaded the Solaris version of Cold Fusion, refer to the documentation that came
with it for installation instructions.



Beginning the Installation Process


To start the installation program, run the CF31PRO.EXE found in the Evaluation
directory on the accompanying CD-ROM. If you have downloaded Cold Fusion from the
Allaire web site, run that executable instead. You should see a welcome screen, similar
to the one shown in Figure 3.4.





NOTE All the installation instructions provided here apply to the live version
of Cold Fusion, not just to the evaluation version provided on the CD-ROM. The only
difference between the two is that when installing the live version you will be prompted
for a serial number that you will receive along with the software.



Fig. 3.4 The Cold Fusion installation program walks you through the
entire Cold Fusion installation process.




Once you have agreed to the license conditions (and entered your serial number if
you are installing a live version of Cold Fusion), you will be prompted for the installation
directory as shown in Figure 3.5. The default directory is C:\CFUSION, but you may
choose another directory if you so desire. It is strongly recommended that you keep
the default directory if possible.



Fig. 3.5
To install Cold Fusion into a directory other than the default C:\CFUSION,
specify that directory during the installation process.




Once you have specified the installation directory, you will be prompted for the
components to install. The Select Components dialog box, shown in Figure 3.6, allows
you to select any of four components. Table 3.2 lists the components and their descriptions.




Fig. 3.6 You can select any or all Cold Fusion components to be installed.

Table 3.2  Cold Fusion Components
























Component Description
Cold Fusion Program Files Cold Fusion itself. This component is the only one that must be present for Cold
Fusion to work.
Documentation and Examples Complete online documentation and example applications.
CFXAPI Tag Development Kit Everything you need to create your own tags in Microsoft Visual C++ version 4 or
later. If you do not have MSVC installed, there is no need to install this component.
If the installation program detects that MSVC is present, Cold Fusion tag wizards
will automatically be added to it.
ODBC 3.0 and Desktop Drivers ODBC drivers needed for database interaction. This option is not enabled by default
as it is very likely that you already have ODBC drivers installed on your computer.
If you want to install the drivers, check this option. To determine whether you have
ODBC installed or not, check the Windows Control Panel. If you see an applet called
ODBC, ODBC is installed.





TIP If you omit a component that you want to install at a later date, you
can rerun the installation program and just select that component.



The installation program that attempts to automatically detect which web server
is installed, and then prompts you to verify the results as shown in Figure 3.7.
If you have more than one web server installed, you will be prompted for the server
with which Cold Fusion will be used.



Fig. 3.7
The Cold Fusion installation program attempts to automatically detect
which web servers are installed.





NOTE If you are using one of the servers listed in Table 3.1 and the installation
program does not automatically detect it, cancel the installation. You might need
to reinstall the web server before proceeding.



Once Cold Fusion knows which web server you are using, it will attempt to determine
the location of the web server's root directory. The Cold Fusion examples, documentation,
and Java applets are installed into subdirectories of this directory. The installation
program will display the directory that it wants to use, as shown in Figure 3.8,
and you may accept or change it.



Fig. 3.8
Select web server document directory.



By default, Cold Fusion documentation, examples, and Java applets are installed into
directories beneath the web server's root directory. Now you'll be prompted for two
passwords, as seen in Figures 3.9 and 3.10. The Administrator password is the password
that will be required to administer and configure Cold Fusion using the web-based
administration program. The Cold Fusion Studio password is the password that Cold
Fusion Studio users will need to be able to access directories, files, and data sources
on the server machine.





NOTE If you are reinstalling Cold Fusion, you will not be prompted for the
passwords--the existing passwords will be used.



You must provide these passwords, and they can be the same password if you so
wish.

Fig. 3.9 The Cold Fusion Administrator password is used to configure
and administer the Cold Fusion Application Server.





TIP The passwords specified here may be changed at a later time using the
Cold Fusion Administrator described in Chapter 4.



Fig. 3.10 The Cold Fusion Studio password is used by Cold Fusion Studio
users to access services on the Cold Fusion Application Server.




Next the installation program will prompt you for the name of the program group to
create, and then you'll be asked to verify all the options selected. Read through
the settings and verify that they are correct, and then click the Next button
to perform the actual installation.


When you have finished installing Cold Fusion you might be prompted to restart
the server.

Testing the Installation


Your next task is to test the installation using the provided test programs. As
explained in Chapter 2, in order to process Cold Fusion pages, the Cold Fusion Application
Server must be running.


If you are running Windows NT, select the Services applet from the Control Panel.
You will see a Cold Fusion service listed, and the status should say "Started."
If the service is not started, highlight it and click the Start button.


If you are running Windows 95, an icon will be displayed in the task bar when
Cold Fusion is running, as shown in Figure 3.11. You can right-click these icons
to stop the server if you so need. To manually start the Cold Fusion Application
Server (if it has been stopped, or if it is shown in the task bar), select the Cold
Fusion menu option from the Cold Fusion group beneath the Start button's Programs
menu.


Once you have verified that Cold Fusion is running, select the Welcome To Cold
Fusion option from the Cold Fusion group beneath the Start button's Programs
menu. You should see a Getting Started screen similar to the one shown in Figure
3.12.


Select the Installation Test option at the top of the Getting Started column.
The Verify Installation and Configuration screen, shown in Figure 3.13, allows you
to perform a database lookup and display the results. If this operation succeeds,
you'll know that the installation was successful. Select a department from the Department
drop-down list, and then click the Verify Query button. If everything is working
correctly, you'll see a results page like the one shown in Figure 3.14. If not, a
series of suggestions will be made to help you resolve the problem.



Fig. 3.11
The Windows 95 task bar displays the Cold Fusion Application Server
icon when Cold Fusion is running.


Fig. 3.12 The Cold Fusion getting started screen provides quick access
to documentation, help, testing tools, and links to Allaire.


Fig. 3.13 The Verify Installation And Configuration page contains a
series of tests that you can run to ensure that Cold Fusion is running properly.


Fig. 3.14 The Test Query Results page will display data retrieved from
an Access database if Cold Fusion is functioning properly.





TIP The Installation Test page also contains links and instructions to other
tests that you can perform to verify the operation of other Cold Fusion features.
You may use this page at any time to ensure that Cold Fusion is running properly.



If you've made it this far, and I have no reason to assume otherwise, congratulations!
You're ready to begin application development.

Preparing to Install Cold Fusion Studio


Cold Fusion Studio is a complete development environment designed especially for
Cold Fusion developers. You do not have to use Studio for your Cold Fusion application
development, but I strongly recommend that you do. Studio is full of features that
will both simplify your application development and save you considerable amounts
of time.


Cold Fusion Studio comes bundled with a single-user version of the Cold Fusion
Application Server. This is primarily of use when you are writing your code on a
computer other than the one running the Cold Fusion Application Server. The separate,
local, single-user server allows you to test your applications locally.





TIP Studio is usually not installed on the web server itself, but on
any other computer on the same network. Studio can also be installed on a computer
on a remote site, in which case it will communicate with the Cold Fusion Application
server via any existing TCP/IP connection.








NOTE From this point on, when the word "Studio" is used, it is referring
to Cold Fusion Studio.



Hardware Requirements


Studio runs on Windows 95 and Windows NT only. There is no 16-bit version of Studio,
nor is there a UNIX version. However, Studio running on Windows 95 or Windows NT
can be used in conjunction with Cold Fusion Application Server running on any platform,
including Solaris.


Studio will run on any computer running Windows 95 or Windows NT (Intel only),
but a minimum of 32MB of RAM is recommended. 15MB of disk space is also need to install
Studio.

What's on the CD-ROM


The accompanying CD-ROM contains a 30-day evaluation version of Cold Fusion Studio.
This is a complete version of Studio, and it comes complete with all the documentation
and help. The only restriction is that it will only run for 30 days. This should
be enough time for you to evaluate the product.


Once you have determined that Studio will work for you, you will need to contact
the Allaire Sales Department at 617-761-2000 to order a live copy. You can install
the live version right over the evaluation version, and any options and settings
will still be accessible to you.


The evaluation version of the Cold Fusion Studio is saved in the Evaluation directory
on the CD as CFSTUDIO31EVAL.EXE.

Installation Checklist


You're about to install Studio. But before doing so, run through this checklist
to make sure your system is ready:


  • Verify that the hardware you are installing Cold Fusion Studio onto meets the
    requirements listed above.



  • Make sure that you have sufficient disk space available.



  • If you are planning on using Studio's remote access features, make sure that
    the TCP/IP protocol is installed and working. (See previous details on how to test
    this.)



  • Make sure that you are using the same version of both the Cold Fusion Application
    Server and Cold Fusion Studio.

Once you have checked off the items in this list, you'll be ready to install Studio.

Installing Cold Fusion Studio


Just like Cold Fusion itself, the Studio installation program makes installing
Cold Fusion Studio a very simple task indeed.





All the installation instructions provided here apply to the live version of Cold
Fusion Studio, not just to the evaluation version provided on the CD-ROM. The only
difference between the two is that when installing the live version you will be prompted
for a serial number, which you will receive along with the software.



Beginning the Installation Process


To start the installation program, run the CFSTUDIO31.EXE found in the Evaluation
directory on the accompanying CD-ROM. If you downloaded Cold Fusion Studio from the
Allaire web site, then run that executable instead. You should see a welcome screen,
similar to the one shown in Figure 3.15.



Fig. 3.15
The Cold Fusion Studio installation program walks you through the
entire Studio installation process.




You will then be prompted to agree to the license, enter a serial number (if you
are installing a live copy of the software), and enter the destination directory.
Once you have provided this information, you will be prompted for the components
to install, as shown in Figure 3.16. Unless you are suffering from the lack of disk
space, it's recommended that you keep both components selected.



Fig. 3.16
You may select any or all Cold Fusion Studio components to be installed.




Cold Fusion Studio comes with a selection of spell checkers that you can use to check
the spelling of your web and application pages. The USA English dictionary is installed
automatically. You may select any of the eight additional dictionaries shown in Figure
3.17.



Fig. 3.17
Cold Fusion Studio comes with eight optional dictionaries that you
may use with the built-in spell checker.




Next the installation program will prompt you for the name of the program group to
create, and then you'll be asked to verify all the options selected. Read through
the settings and verify that they are correct, and then click the Next button
to perform the actual installation.

Testing the Installation


To test Studio, just run the program by selecting it from the Studio program group
under the Start button's Programs menu. You are welcome to try it out
right now. However, Studio will not be discussed in any detail until Chapter 10. l
