Newb question: Where is the administrator?

I have just found CommandBox today and have set it up and got it working, but where is the administrator? The equivalent of /cfide/administrator/?

Hi Jay,

If you click on the icon in the system tray (windows) or the menu bar (mac) you will find a link to the admin there.

FYI, if you didn’t specific a CFML engine on start then default default it will use Lucee 4.5 and not ACF.

Hi Andrew,

What if i’m accessing the box over ssh and not locally? I need a web administrator really…

CommandBox is not a web server. It is a cli that offers the ability run any cfml engine. So in order to access an admin you must start a server.

Once you start it will tell you the port it is on or you can choose your custom port as we’ll.

Another way to access the remote server’s Lucee admin would be to create a SSH tunnel using a tool like,, to map the remote port to a local port and access the Lucee Server/Web admins in your local web browser on the tunnel’s local port.

Or this may be a programmatic approach. Others are likely far more qualified to weigh in on what can and can’t be accomplished through this approach.
