Hi Ol,

I went through my archived mail and found it..  It's part of a thread from July...  I was a little off on the source of the problem,
but the thread should give you enough insight to get you squared away.

Forgive the long post, y'all, but I think it's necessary for the sake of continuity...  I even censored it.. heh heh...

Here goes..

CENSORED me in the goat-CENSORED... this appears to be a bug on allaires part(and
a well known one at that)

On a side note, don't ya just love how these people that work for
allaire that monitor the forums are oh-so-CENSORED-helpful to answer
questions with a 'did you try a restart of your server' or 'try
rebooting your computer' but when they get conftronted with a hard core
question like this, you don't hear a peep out of them? argh.

well, at any rate, i've modified the coldfusion module, recompiled it at
can get what should be cgi.path_info out as cgi.query_string..

is that any help?

the only cool thing out of all of this is i figured out how to get CF to
recognize different extensions besides .cfm on apache.
