Somehow I managed to bugger up the ColdFusion installation on my beloved laptop. Whenever I would try to start the cf server I would get the following not-very-helpful message.
Running the ColdFusion 8 connector wizard ====================================================================== Configuring the web server connector (Launched on the first run of the ColdFusion 8 start script) Running apache connector wizard... ======================================= There was an error while running the connector wizard Connector installation was not successful
As you may have figured out by now, I’m not a server-config kind of guy. I poked around a little bit and found an interesting looking shell script at /opt/coldfusion8/bin/connectors/apache_connector.sh. Running that gave me a much better error message:
Could not find directory /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
I opened the file and realized that the paths were all boogered up, meaning the paths I entered when installing ColdFusion where all buggered up. In any case, I fixed the incorrect paths and here’s what the file looks like now:
#!/bin/sh # # Configure the Apache connector. # -dir should be the *directory* which contains httpd.conf # -bin should be the path to the apache *executable* # -script should be the path to the script which is used to # start/stop apache # ../../runtime/bin/wsconfig -server coldfusion -ws apache -dir /etc/apache2 -bin /usr/sbin/apache2 -script /etc/init.d/apache2 -coldfusion exit $#
