False TemplateNotFoundException ColdFusion 9

March 17, 2014
coldfusion

I was working on a server (CF9.0.2 Win2008 IIS7.5) installation today and ran into what I thought at first was an IIS connector issue. When I setup the server in IIS 6 compatibility mode, it simply returned a blank page, using the IIS 7 connector for ColdFusion 9 was showing me an IIS error page with a 404.0 response from the JWildCardHandler in ExecuteRequestHandler, the file that I was trying to serve was there, IIS had permission to read it. It was not a 404!

I then realized it was not an IIS connector issue (even though it really looked like it to me), but the problem was on the CF side.

In my exception.log I found:

"Error","jrpp-0","03/17/14","15:13:57",,"Could not find the ColdFusion component or interface C:\sites\test\Application.cfc.Ensure that the name is correct and that the component or interface exists. The specific sequence of files included or processed is: C:\sites\test\index.cfm'' "

The Application.cfc was there and ColdFusion had read permission to it, the ApplicationException.cfm was there and ColdFusion also had read permission to that user.

I was getting this coldfusion.runtime.TemplateNotFoundException but the templates really were there!

So what was the problem?

I had denied write access to C:\ColdFusion9\wwwroot\ for ColdFusion's user account. So what I think happened is that ColdFusion tried to compile the cfm and cfc file (and it needs to write those files into the WEB-INF folder) it didn't have permission to write these files so it threw a TemplateNotFoundException on the file it was trying to compile... even though CF did find it and could read it, it just couldn't save the compiled class.

I had to blog this one because it is such an obscure exception, not sure if too many people will encounter it, but just in case...
