Anyways, I will write about my personal experiences, but wanted to kick off a conversation on deployment strategies for ColdFusion.

This is more of a question post than a learning post, so your feedback is welcomed. Here is what I am trying to do. I have several commits into a branch and I would like to build a patch file that has all the files that where changed from commit X to commit Y. Example:
Commit 1 – Changed files
Commit 2 – Changed files
Commit 3 – Changed files
Now I want to run SOMETHING or do SOMETHING automated that can produce the following patch:
So any Git gurus can comment on how to achieve this.
I can honestly say that I love Apache for its simplicity and just works attitude. I am recently setting up my lab at home and using iis7 under windows 7 to test some sites. Problem after problem, but I guess it is my lack of usage of iis. Anyways, after setting up a new site and giving the folder permissions to the IIS user, I was still getting the following nasty error:
The solution is definitely straightforward but after much googling and fiddling, finally something that works. Go to the IIS admin and click on your site. Once there, click on the Authentication icon:
Once it opens, click on Anonymous Authentication and then on the right hand panel click on “EDIT”. You will get a modal window about the user to use for anonymous security:
Make sure you click on “Application Pool identity” instead of the default IUSR user. That’s it, now the error is gone and a consistent user is used.
So I will attribute this to my lack of IIS skills, but still, quite convoluted.
