Hello,
I just installed Winsows 2000 Server, then SP 3.0.
Then I installed CFusion 4.5, then upgraded to CFusion 5.0.  Now, I can view all .htm pages, HOWEVER, when I try to view .cfm or masp pages, I get, "Cannot Find Page" errors.
Any suggestions?
Thank you,
Jason

Thank you,
Jason

check URLScan to make sure that it isnt blocking the files you are trying to get

maybe add directory browsing and remove the index, so you can definitely 100% confirm it is there

Thank you for your help.
I just got back today.
What is URLscan, and where do I get it?

Also, what do you mean by removing the index?
Please let me know so I can try these things.

Thanks,
Jason

ok
turn on Directory Browsing in IIS
so that you can see what contents are in your directory, but for that to be effective you must make sure there is no index file, you can either untick Default Documents in the Web Site properties, or you can just make sure there is no index.cfm or default.htm or whatever you have it set to, so that you cansee the directory

then if you can definitely see your file, if you then click it, and it comes back as page cannot be found its almost undoubtedly URL Scan

URLScan is a program that monitors HTTP requests coming in through iis and disallows common attacks on IIS, and blocks certain files, like if you were to place a dat on a default configured IIS with lockdown, you would find that when you typed in the location for that file it would come back as page cannot be found

if you open notepad
and goto
%WINDIR%\System32\inetsrv\urlscan\

there should be an urlscan.ini

edit the DENY list or the allow list

make sure that CFM isnt there

oh by the way, i don't know if you are still having this problem, but i've noticed that the topic is Cannot Display Page, please remember this is a lot different from a Page Cannot be Found, as my solutions were for the latter, if you had the Cannot Display Page, make sure you have Friendly HTTP Error messages off, otherwise, you will just get the generic error page as opposed to something with some detail (in some cases obviously)
