I just installed CF 11 Developer - on Mac Yosemite. I am not having trouble starting the server
MAIN GOAL: not to have server running all the time - just be able to manually start/stop the server when needed...
I went to app>CF11>cfusion>bin >cf-standalone-startup and double clicked
this brought up terminal - I entered main user pass then it said:
You must be the root user to configure the ColdFusion to start on System boot. Start ColdFusion as "sudo ./coldfusion start" to configure.
Once it has been configured, start ColdFusion as "./coldfusion start" to run ColdFusion as non-root user.
Q: not sure how to do this part (not a command line guy) Can anyone help with how to proceed with this?
To configure ColdFusion to start on System boot
1. Navigate to bin
yourComputerName:~ yourUserName$ cd /Applications/ColdFusion11/cfusion/bin/
2. Enter sudo ./coldfusion start
yourComputerName:bin yourUserName$ sudo ./coldfusion start
4. CF 11 installed
5. Enter ./coldfusion start
yourComputerName:bin yourUserName$ ./coldfusion start
6. Server started
To start and stop server
Write 2 scripts (as below) and save each as an Application. Thereafter just click on either to start or stop the server i.e. start serverInstance.
tell application "Terminal"
do script "/Applications/ColdFusion11/serverInstance/bin/coldfusion start"
do shell script "/Applications/ColdFusion11/serverInstance/bin/coldfusion stop"
