I have just installed ColdFusion 2021 locally on my Intel based MacBook pro - I am presented with the Configuration and Settings Migration Wizard and I enter my password and I get an error.
I am using HomeBrew apache. Intel based Macbook Pro.
This is the error I am getting:
What happens when you (deliberately) enter the wrong password?
Amber, though I don't recognize this error or its potential cause, I'll offer this: you can configure cf to SKIP that migration wizard prompt. I don't know if that will help, but it may. I have a blog post showing how, which I'll share in a moment.
But first, something not clear from your post is whether you had a previous installation of cf on this machine. (A "fresh install" could just as well mean "first install of cf2021" as "first install of any cf on this machine".)
The migration wizard does nothing if you have no prior install, so skipping it is fine in that case. And if you DO have a prior install, there are two ways to get cf to to import settings from that version, which you could try once you get past this. I cover those in the blog post, which is here.
Let us know how things go, if you try it.
