Many might not know about this, but you can use an application.cfc file in your CF application to set CF mappings, and CF custom tag paths, without the need to register them in CF admin. We highly encourage the use of application.cfc for this purpose.

Create a file named "application.cfc" in your sites root folder and put in the following code:

    <cfset THIS.Name = "UniqueApplicationName" />
Make sure you replace "UniqueApplicationName" with a name for your application. Then you can add other application.cfc codes as well, such as mappings and tag paths.

If you have an application.cfm file: Please note that uploading an application.cfc file, will cause your application.cfm file to be ignored. You will need to convert your .cfm file into an application.cfc in order to preserve your previous settings.
