ColdFusion complies with JEE standards, which require the use of XML files for server and web application configuration. The following sections describe the JEE-standard XML files used by ColdFusion, the ColdFusion-specific XML server configuration files, and the XML files used to store ColdFusion Administrator settings.

ColdFusion-specific XML files:

XML File Description Location
adminconfig.xml Used to set migration wizard flags during ColdFusion installation. cf_root\lib
default-web.xml Defines servlets used by ColdFusion. cf_root\runtime\servers\ default\SERVER-INF
logger.xml Used for custom logger cflog. cf_root\lib
neo-comobjmap.xml Used to store pre-generated Java stubs for COM objects. cf_root\lib
neo-metric.xml Used to store settings that control calculations for GetMetricData(). cf_root\lib
neo-registry.xml This is the configuration file for the registry service and controls the frequency for updates to the cf.registry file on Unix configurations. cf_root\lib

ColdFusion Administrator specific XML files:

neo-datasource.xml Stores ColdFusion Administrator settings for data sources like Apache Derby and MySQL. cf_root\lib
neo-debug.xml Stores ColdFusion Administrator Debugging Settings. cf_root\lib
neo-document.xml Stores ColdFusion Administrator settings for CFDocument timeout. cf_root\lib
neo-dotnet.xml Stores ColdFusion Administrator settings for .NET ports. cf_root\lib
neo-drivers.xml Stores ColdFusion Administrator settings for drivers like JDBC and ODBC. cf_root\lib

neo-mail.xml Stores ColdFusion Administrator settings for Mail. cf_root\lib
neo-monitoring.xml Stores ColdFusion Administrator settings for server monitoring. cf_root\lib
neo-probe.xml Stores ColdFusion Administrator settings for System Probes. cf_root\lib
neo-query.xml Stores ColdFusion Administrator settings for Data Sources. cf_root\lib
neo-runtime.xml Stores ColdFusion Administrator settings for memory variables, CFX tags, Custom tag paths, Mappings, Corba connectors, sitewide error handler, missing template handler, Enable http status codes, Time out requests, Log Slow Requests, Caching, default mail charset, default charset. cf_root\lib
neo-search.xml Stores ColdFusion Administrator settings for Verity configuration settings. cf_root\lib

This is required if you deploy ColdFusion in a Websphere ND vertical cluster, as multiple instances of ColdFusion share the same configuration files. Most installations should not enable this feature. cf_root\lib
neo-xmlrpc.xml Stores ColdFusion Administrator settings for web services. cf_root\lib
