So, just got ColdFusion 8 working on my Mac Mini running an upgraded version of Leopard (from Tiger). Below are the steps I took. As I said before it’s basically Geoff’s guide with a couple more reboots!

  1. Install Apple XCode Tools from Leopard DVD
  2. Restart
  3. Install ColdFusion 8
    Multi-server, developer edition ColdFusion 8 Document and Start ColdFusion on system init both checked Installed to /Applications/JRun4 Web Servers
    • Apache
    • Configuration Directory: /etc/apache2
    • Server Binary: /usr/sbin/httpd
    • Server Control Script: /usr/sbin/apachectl CFIDE installed to default documents folder which is /Library/Webserver/Documents
  4. Complete wizard ignoring web server startup and connector failure messages
  5. Restart
  6. Compile the new connector
    cd /Applications/JRun4/lib
     unzip -d src wsconfig.jar
     cd src/connectors/src
     apxs -c -Wc,-arch -Wc,x86_64 -Wl,-arch -Wl,x86_64 -n jrun22 mod_jrun22.c jrun_maptable_impl.c jrun_property.c jrun_session.c platform.c jrun_mutex.c jrun_proxy.c jrun_utils.c
     apxs -i -n jrun22 -S LIBEXECDIR=/Applications/JRun4/lib/src/connectors/src/
  7. Check the connector with wsconfig
    cd /Applications/JRun4/lib/
     sudo java -jar wsconfig.jar
  8. Delete the current connector and put your fresh shiny new one in
    rm /Applications/JRun4/lib/wsconfig/1/
    cp /Applications/JRun4/lib/src/connectors/src/ /Application/JRun4/lib/wsconfig/1/
  9. Restart
  10. Start CF
    sudo /Applications/JRun4/bin/jrun -start cfusion
  11. Kick apache
    sudo apachectl restart
  12. Browse to localhost/CFIDE/administrator/index.cfm (unless you’ve already added index.cfm as a default doc)
  13. Go to bed feeling happy.
