ColdFusion 5 on openSuSe 10.2

Filed under
HowTos

Yesterday evening, a friend of mine asked me if I know how to install ColdFusion 5.0 on a up-to-date openSuse system. After some fiddling around, I indeed found a way to get it running, but let's start from the beginning:

The main problem is: it simply won't run out of the box because of the following facts:

-openSuse comes with a 2.2.x Apache
-The apache module shipped with CF is for Apache 1.3.x only
-Adobe offers a 2.0.x module, but no 2.2.x one
-Nextron.ch has a custom built 2.0.4x module that also won't run on 2.2.x Apaches

-CF refused to start

Let it be clear, I am by no means an Ubuntu user, not even a fan. I left the fold nearly a decade ago, after having spent quite some time using and contributing to Kubuntu (to the point of becoming a certified “member” even, though I never ascended to the Council). In terms of loyalties and usage, I am a KDE user (and “helper”) foremost. I use Fedora because it just works for me, for now. So, yes, an Ubuntu Touch device would be another compromise for me, but it would be the smallest one. Or so I hoped. Read more
