Just been trying to install CF10 with Apache2 and it was all looking reasonably good, but when I try to use the CFIDE adminstrator, I get a Tomcat error:

HTTP Status 500 -


type Exception report

message

description The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

note The full stack trace of the root cause is available in the Apache Tomcat/7.0.23 logs.


Apache Tomcat/7.0.23

The coldfusion-error.log seems pretty harmless:

Any other diagnostics I should include?

Hi Alex

Have you checked compatibility of ColdFusion10 with Ubuntu 12.04 from this link http://wwwimages.adobe.com/www.adobe.com/content/dam/Adobe/en/products/coldfusion/pdfs/cf10/coldfusi... ?

As per the link, this version is not certified.

Regards

Swaraj

I have the exact same problem. The 12.04 version is supported.

I tried it on a clean server, but it does not work.

How can I fix?

I did get it working - unfortunately I've forgotten how!

Not very helpful, I know, but it is worth persisting 😉

Thanks. lol. I found the problem and so is the solution. Dont know why though. I didnt give my server a proper hostname. So i went back and change the /etc/hosts as well as /etc/resolv.conf. after that reboot the server (sound like Window OS..lol) and it works.

I think your cause was the same because you had "Could not determine local hostname." in the error log.

A lot later...

...just to say that I had the same error just now and did a Google, only to find my own complaint!!!

However, the problem was indeed to do with hostnames.

I just edited /etc/hostname to contain "myserver.mydomain.com"

did "hostname myserver.mydomain.com"

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

/opt/coldfusion10/cfusion/bin/coldfusion restart

and all was good...
