ColdFusion administrator website prompts with authentication window


ColdFusion 8 was installed on the server. After Plesk installation ColdFusion administrator website started to prompt with authentication window.


Most likely the reason of the problem is missed permissions on ColdFusion folder or files.


Make sure that C:\ColdFusion8\runtime\lib\wsconfig folder has Read and Execute permissions for Network Service which is used by ColdFusion application pool.
