Streamlined datasource setup

As a systems administrator, I would like the ability to copy a previous DSN when generating new databases in ColdFusion with two editable fields (DSN name and database name) so that it’s simpler to configure new databases using ColdFusion.


====================

I'm using ColdFusion with cPanel and I am setting up new databases as we get new users. Each of these databases needs a ColdFusion data source. To set up a new datasource I have to fill out a form, which means I have to scramble around to find the server, port, and password -- even though these are exactly the same as for my previous DSNs. The only new items are the DSN name and the database name.


I'd like to be able to just copy a previous DSN and change those two items in order to create a new one.
