To use CFConfig, you can install it into CommandBox easily like so.

CommandBox> install commandbox-cfconfig

Now that you've got the tool installed you can dig into the command help to see where to go from there. Here's a quick overview of some of the commands. Run the built-in command help for more info on each one.

These commands will work on any CF engine and if you run them from the root of CommandBox server they will "just work" as it will "find" the server for you. To run these commands against another type of server, you'd need to specify a folder path for the "from" or "to" parameters that pointed to the server home directories.
