In this article we will be having a closer look at one of our in-house built products, the CFManager. Firstly it is a cPanel plugin that allows Host Media customers to manage their Adobe ColdFusion datasource names without requesting them to be managed by an administrator or support member. This saves us and customers a lot of time and having to open a ticket – nice and convenient. This is a one of a kind product and no other hosting company has created this for cPanel.
It allows you to create, edit, remove and check the connection of your ColdFusion datasources without the need for admin access. It currently supports MySQL and MsSQL database types with more planned in the future.
Shareable Datasources NEW
One of the most popular requests we received for CFManager was the ability to allow other cPanel accounts on the same server to be able to access another accounts DSN. With the latest release you can now share ColdFusion DSN with other accounts. This is perfect for agencies or people hosting multiply accounts via a reseller or normal shared CF hosting package. Sharing is done by using a token which is then entered into the other cPanel accounts CFManager, once entered the DSN is added to the allowed access list.
