CF8 Error: Cron service not available error

Posted in ColdFusion, TechSupport by rip747 on May 12, 2008

This morning all of our sites were throwing this cryptic ColdFusion error, even after a reboot the error was still there. I did a search on Google and came across this post that describes the fix.

  1. open your {cf_root}\lib directory
  2. rename neo-cron.xml to neo-cron.xxx
  3. if you have a neo-cron.bak, trying renaming it to neo-cron.xml. If you don’t you can download an empty neo-cron.xml from my box.net widget.
  4. restart ColdFusion.

    Thanks for this – I don’t see why CF can’t auto-create a new file if it doesn’t exist – hey ho!
