Just a quick note to say I was able to get CF 8 working on a fresh install of Apache version 2.2.4.
A few quick observations:
- During the CF install, I got a nice message reminding me to stop ColdFusion MX 7 Search Server
- After CF finished, I had to run the Web Server Configuration Tool again for everything to work
- I also had to open Port 51800 on my local firewall. I suspect this is JNDI.
My initial impressions? The installation process handled the above issues gracefully. This doesn't feel much like beta software... Remind me to tell you about an experience I had with a SQL Studio Express CTP beta once.
Editors note: I suppose I will never be hired by microsoft if I keep making these sorts of comments
