I was ready to install Mango on my production server (IIS, Windows 2003 Server, MS SQL Server). When I got to step 2 I received a component preferences couldn't be found. I see others have run into this issue and I didn't have this problem when evaluating Mango but I was on a Mac when I was testing on not Windows. I added a mapping "/components to the components where I have the manago blog installed.
By doing this I was able to get through the install and I am able to create posts and links, the entire admin seems to be working. However when I view the site, http://www.weiland.net/ I get an error that /index.cfm couldn't be found. I verified that the index.cfm is in the default documents. I can view the posts or the search, go to http://www.weiland.net/archives.cfm/search/?term=&Submit=GO to see. Oh wait, I changed the skin and then viewed the above link and now I'm getting this error:
Error: : Could not find the included template /skins/nautica05/author.cfm.
Note: If you wish to use an absolute template path (e.g. TEMPLATE="/mypath/index.cfm") with CFINCLUDE then you must create a mapping for the path using the ColdFusion Administrator. Using relative paths (e.g. TEMPLATE="index.cfm" or TEMPLATE="../index.cfm") does not require the creation of any special mappings. It is therefore recommended that you use relative paths with CFINCLUDE whenever possible.

Please check if there is a mapping "/" in your CF admin. That would break pretty much everything that tries to use relative paths.

Well that got me part of the way there. I did have a / mapping. I removed that and this page comes up http://www.weiland.net/archives.cfm/date/2008/1 but the index page is still not working, http://www.weiland.net/

I got my install working on my production server. After removing the / mapping I was still having problems accessing index.cfm. After clearing the template cache all was good.

I'm so glad you got it working. I wasn't sure why you had the problem of the index not being found.
