Apparently Runs On ASP.NET - News To Me

By Ben Nadel on

Glen just pointed out to me that, according to, my site, was built using ASP.NET. This is news to me, especially considering the only file extensions I ever use on my site are HTM and CFM.

Unfortunately, it looks like they are getting that from the X-Powered-By line in the response header that is getting sent by the server. Shame ColdFusion doesn't inject a line like that into the response header.


Nice call; I would have never even thought to look at the response headers. I tried adding this line:

value="ColdFusion MX7"

... but unforutnately, it won't overwrite the ASP.NET value, it will only add to it:

X-Powered-By: ASP.NET, ColdFusion MX7

I even tried using the GetPageContext() to set the header value, but it looks like the documentation is not quite accurate on the fact that it will overwrite it... oh well. At least now, it has ColdFusion MX7 in there.
