Setting Up Verity K2

The Verity K2 server is a high performance indexing engine that is included with ColdFusion 5, and can be used via the standard tag (and related tags). But K2 is not up and running by default, you need to set it up manually. Doing this involves three steps: 1) editing the k2server.ini file to specify the names of the collections to be exposed to ColdFusion, 2) starting the K2 Server by executing the k2server program, 3) specifying the K2 server name and port in the ColdFusion Administrator. Note that you’ll need to restart K2 if k2server.ini is modified (to add or change collections). (Applies to: ColdFusion 5 or later)
