Many developers wrongly assume the ColdFusion application server searches only to the Web server document root to locate an Application.cfm file. In fact, the server searches all the way up the directory tree to the root directory of the hard drive. As this is rarely the desired behavior you should always have an Application.cfm in your Web server root (even if it is empty) – this way you’ll never pick up an Application.cfm file by mistake.
