I'm installing a developer profile of ColdFusion 2016 to Mac (Version 10.11.6) and I'm having an issue with completing the installation because I can't run the web server. Per the instructions, I went into my applications directory, ColdFusion2016/cfusion/bin to start the server but I don't know where to type the required "./coldfusion start" to start the server. Please help. Thanks.
try this >$ sudo ./coldfusion start
You need root access to start ColdFusion on *nix based OSes.

do I add this to the command line terminal on my mac because that didn't work. Thanks.
Then run this command
sudo /Applications/ColdFusion2016/cfusion/bin/coldfusion start
Looks like I got it to work. Thank you. Next I'll try installing CF Builder...
