Hi all I'm having great difficulty getting ColdFusion10 to work under Apache with OS X 10.10 Yosemite.

Here is a description of what I've faced and a little of what I've done to solve my problem

Problem 1

Apache httpd.conf file gets messed up

Solution: copy original httpd.conf file from /etc/apache2/original/ to /etc/apache2/

Problem 2

No Java Virtual Machine is installed!

Solution: install Java (version 6 or 7 is better) you may only be able to install version 8

Problem 3

ColdFusion doesn't know where your Java installation is so find and update your ColdFusion configuration files




change the source to whatever your current Java is and where it's located

for example if you have version 7 installed:


if you have version 8 installed:


Problem 4

INFO: The APR based Apache Tomcat Native library which allows optimal performance in production environments was not found on the java.library.path: YOUR PATH HERE!

Solution:Still working on this one!
