File Names and Case-Sensitivity

If you are running ColdFusion on a Unix system (Linux, for example) then you must pay special attention to file names and their case-sensitivity. This is especially important when using special files like “Application.cfm” in which case the file must be spelled like that exactly, any other spelling (including “APPLICATION.CFM” and “application.cfm”) will not be recognized as an application template and the file will not be processed. If you are writing code that need be portable keep this in mind. (Applies to: ColdFusion All)
