This tutorial will show you how to quickly and easily backup and restore a MySQL database using just ColdFusion scripts and avoiding having to use CFEXECUTE which is normally disallowed on shared hosting platforms.
ColdFusion 8 has some handy tags that will provide database detail but what if you're running CF7? Normally you would have to resort to running the mysqldump command but this is restrictive if you wanted to provide your users with a method to backup their databases.
This is a definitive guide on how to create and manage ColdFusion 8 instances on a corporate environment on a JRUN server. the guide pretty much shows how to set-up the development environment, but it can also be used for production if a few changes are made.
This short tutorial will have your site looking awesome with flash forms on a shared server environment. This requires access to CF8 (or 7) /CFIDE/Scripts files.

This Tutorial will show you how to display tag restricitons with Sandbox Security enabled.
Many times we need a quick and easy way of importing data into our website databases. The CSV file format is one of the defacto standards for moving data between databases easily. Virtually all databases allow exported to CSV format. And virtually all database support importing a CSV formatted file. So why use Coldfusion to do this mundane task? Simply put it is database independant - in this example I created a simple script that reads a CSV file and inserts the records into a matched mySQL table. When I first started looking at this I was surprised that I could find very little of how to achieve this. So now that I have it worked out I thought I could share this little piece...

In FireFox, you can dynamically set the EncType of a form element to be "multipart/form-data" for file uploads; however, this does not work in Internet Explorer (IE). Apparently in IE, you have to set the "encoding" of the form rather than the "enctype". The good news is, you can set both values without concern and this will take care of the problem:

With AJAX applications giving us a lot more power than an "old school" web 1.0 page, it isn't unusual for someone to just sit on one page and fire off various operations that use HTTP to fetch and present data. This works fine until you leave the site alone for too long and your session times out. (I'm assuming most folks use a time based session, much like how ColdFusion works.) The question is - what happens in your current AJAX based application when a user's session times out?
There is a solution...
