cfqueryparam / regular expression

by marcus 06/02/2010

Currently, I’m migrating a CF5/Win project to CFMX9/Linux. Apart from the usual path issues, the one who programmed this app yeeears ago did not protect *any single* form- or url-variable inside CFQUERY against misuse or even SQL-Injection. Not one syntax check, no CFQUERYPARAM… *sigh*

The monitoring service is not available

by marcus 19/09/2008

If your CF8 installation starts without error, but returns an error 500 stating something like… “500 the monitoring service is not available” …on each request, then probably your neo-monitoring.xml is corrupt. This solution did the trick for me: -Rename or delete the corrupt {cf_dir}/lib/neo-monitoring.xml -Restart CF CF then creates a new neo-monitoring.xml, but totally refuses […]

Installing CF8 on Debian Etch

by marcus 02/11/2007

Yesterday evening, I needed to set up a CF8 development environment in VMWare. Honestly – this was the first install (and believe me, I installed a LOT of CF servers in my career) that really worked like a charm – good work, Adobe! If you ever set up a CF 5/6/7 server, you know about […]

by marcus 23/03/2007

Yesterday evening, a friend of mine asked me if I know how to install ColdFusion 5.0 on a up-to-date openSuse system.

by marcus 07/01/2006

Last monday, I met Ilyas Hamidzai, one of the core developers of Ignite Fusion, in Mönchengladbach. We had a really fun and interesting talk about… err.. everything? 🙂 To let you know the backgrounds of this meeting: I first got in touch with Ignite Fusion about a year ago due to a mailing list post, […]

CFMX 7 Developer Certification, Part II

by marcus 28/07/2005

The operator “AND” returns true if both expressions are true. So, to prove that our BIB-Headline, which says that kk AND mr are two advanced certified CF developers, is true, I also needed to take the CFMX Developer Test again (and besides, I had to pass it to keep my CF-Instructor title). Well, I reached […]

Funny thing – it worked and still works on all CF5 servers we’re running, besides one CFMX that hosts sections needing the UTF-8 charset. So, what happened?The error occured in the edit handler for the random image object on […]
