Configuration File Question & Issue


I have installed Lucee on my dedicated server. I can log into server.cfm and web.cfm. So Lucee is running without any systemic problems on CENTOS 7 with Plesk. However, I have a problem that I can’t figure out and figured I’d ask the august Lucee community for an answer.

I had a question as to why a website on my server is trying to point to a different domain/website on the server when all the files are in place and need to know where I should go to correct it.

Here’s the sample link:

Error: Page /cfsite/index.cfm [/var/www/vhosts/] not found

When I log into the lucee/admin/server.cfm file I see the configuration file location for the site as:

  • Webroot: /var/www/vhosts/
  • Configuration file: /var/www/vhosts/

When I change over the lucee/admin/web.cfm under I have the following:

  • Webroot: /var/www/vhosts/
  • Configuration file: /var/www/vhosts/

When I logged into the server and checked the directory where the website is located all the files/directories for Lucee are there. And the lucee/admin/web.cfm should say the following:

  • Webroot: /var/www/vhosts/
  • Configuration file: /var/www/vhosts/

However, to my chagrin, it does not.
Any suggestions would be most appreciated!


Sounds like either Apache or Tomcat virtual host issues to me. I’d run through the steps outlined here: and see if you missed a step along the way :wink:

Thank you Denny!


First try rebooting the server.
