We currently have Coldfusion 11 running on Ubuntu 16.04 on all of our application servers. When I came to install Coldfusion 2016 I noticed the installer failed on the Apache connector part and checked the Coldfusion 2016 support matrix here:
Which states it does not support Ubuntu 16.04 which I found odd because I've seen several posts and even this image of Coldfusion 2016 running on Ubuntu 16.04:
I'm guessing these people installing on 14.04 and then updated to 16.04.
Does anyone have an tips of getting the installer to run on Ubuntu 16.04?
Can you please share the error which you are getting while creating the connector with Apache and I hope you are using built-in Apache which ships with Ubuntu16.04
Also, in case it's significant, when did you get the CF2016 installer you're using? There was a "refreshed one" in Dec 2016. It may be that your challenge is related to using the original one, from Feb 2016. Or perhaps there is a need of an update (but I would think Priyank would have mentioned if he thought that was the case).
(I don't run Ubuntu so am not speaking from specific experience with it, just general experience with issues that have tripped up folks regardless of OS. Hope it's helpful. Sorry if it's not pertinent to this situation.)
Also thank you so much for the reply!
I downloaded the most up to date installer so I don't think this is the issue but it was definitely worth a check.
Thanks so much for the reply!
The error I am getting is at the Apache connector setup stage of the installer:
Where is the Apache program binary file? (For example, on Red Hat Linux it
could be /usr/sbin/httpd if you installed from an rpm, for Ubuntu
/usr/sbin/apache2ctl (this is same as the Apache start and stop script.), or
for SuSE Linux it could be located at /usr/sbin/httpd2) If you have more
than one instance of Apache on your computer, enter the binary file location
for the Apache web server that will use ColdFusion. (Note: this is not the
Apache start and stop script.)
Invalid path to Apache binary (the file does not exist).
I've checked and the file does infact exist so am a little stuck here.
I ran the wsconfig with below command and it worked, as I am using built-in Apache.
sudo ./wsconfig -ws Apache -script /usr/sbin/apache2ctl -dir /etc/apache2/ -v
can you please try this command.
Im stuck on the same thing and I tried running the script with no result...
