As you know Debian Linux is not supported officialy by Adobe. But Debian is one of the mosts used and well known Linux distribition for specially server usage and I think there would be some other people who wants to use Debian and ColdFusion together.
I have decided to install a clean Debian Linux for this tutorial. I think we can also see required packages for a base system.
Now server is ready for ColdFusion installation. We can download ColdFusion installer for Linux "coldfusion-701-lin.bin" and start to installation. Unfortunatelly at this step I do not know any place where I can download required ColdFusion installer via Wget. I need to download first over web and put into my server via SSH.
