Due to various glitches I had to reinstall ColdFusion and Apache http server on my machine (Windows 7 Ultimate edition). I uninstalled Apache and ColdFusion via Uninstall Programs Menu, and then deleted the JRun4 directory and its accompanying registry key (since it did not get uninstalled as well). Basically, set the field to have a clean re-install

I then proceeded to reinstall Apache HTTP Server 2.2 and everything else in accordance with this manual -


Apache HTTP server seemed to work, localhost/ gave me the "it works!" webpage as it's supposed to. I then installed ColdFusion_9_WWE_win64, went through all the steps smoothly up until Figure 16. Once I told it to open ColdFusion administrator,

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the sever administrator, adamxyz707@gmail.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

I looked through the JRun Management console, and it seems to be running smoothly. Is there something I'm missing?

Nevermind, turns out McAfee firewall was blocking it. Still would be interested to know if its possible to configure McAfee so it can coexist with ColdFusion/JRun/whatever –  alex28 Jul 14 '11 at 21:01
I've always run windows dev installs of ColdFusion with a variety of anti-virus applications with no problems. Connectors between servers all need network ports open for various reasons. Apache proxies to JRun via port 51000+, ColdFusion instances under JRun are accessible via port 8300+, MySQL uses 3306. Generally, for localhost/ these ports are accessible, but you might find that McAfee is "protecting" you from yourself. –  Mr Nil Jul 14 '11 at 22:32
Yeah, I looked into it and for some reason Apache server was on McAfee's blocklist. Set it to allow and everything worked fine. –  alex28 Jul 15 '11 at 14:29
