Will my site work with ColdFusion 11 or ColdFusion 2016?

  1. In most cases, yes, without any changes. We have migrated thousands of sites from ColdFusion 6, 7, 8 and 9 to ColdFusion 10, 11 and/or 2016 and have only seen a few sites that did not work without some minor changes.
  2. We have been able to work with the developer and site owners to get the needed changes made to their application. If the changes are fairly small and don't require a whole lot of time, we have provided this service for free. We want you on the latest ColdFusion versions for your security.
