By default, our ColdFusion VPS servers have the ColdFusion Administrator page password-protected by the Windows Adminstrator user and its password. This is just to provide additional security, but if you wish to remove the password prompt from your ColdFusion Administrator, do the following:

  1. Open up the IIS 7.5 Manager on your VPS
  2. Expand the Server item in IIS, then expand the Sites folder
  3. Click the CFAdmin site, then double-click the 'Authentication' icon
  4. Now right-click the 'Windows Authentication' item, and choose 'Disable'


Now you should be able to log into the ColdFusion Administrator without seeing an authentication prompt appear before you get to the login page. Please note though, it is recommended to leave the Windows Authentication enabled on the CFAdmin site in IIS.
