How To Install Railo 3.2 Under OpenSUSE 11.3 Running Apache2 Tomcat 6 Virtual Host - Page 2

3.1 Install Railo

/tmp/railo-3.2.1.000-pl0-linux-installer.run

Click OK to go to the next page:

Click "Forward" to continue:

Accept the default installation directory and click "Forward":

Accept the default tomcat administrator username, and click "Forward":

Select a secret password you remember, and click "Forward":

Accept the default tomcat system user "root", and click "Forward":

Accept default value and run railo at boot time, then click "Forward":

Accept default value and install apache connector:

The final step isto choose the correct apache version, then click "Forward":

For the SUSE apache webserver, the default apache control script is under "/etc/init.d/apache2":

For the SUSE apache webserver, the default apache modules directory is under "/etc/lib/apache2":

For the SUSE apache webserver, the default apache configuration file is under "/etc/apache2/httpd.conf":

Accept the default value, and click "Forward":

Click "Forward" and continue:

Now open a browser and you will see railo is running and starts serving any coldfusion requests. (Be aware that the default installation only works for localhost, and for any cfm requests the DocumentRoot is under /opt/railo/tomcat/webapps/ROOT/, NOT apache default DocumentRoot /srv/www/htdocs) , we will work on real virtual host next step.

Thank you for creating this guide.

 I would like to add something to it if I may. Inside the server.xml file, when you have to add the Host tag, make sure you DO NOT add any slash at the end of the DocBase property, otherwise it will not work. I had days getting a blank page when I was invoking my .cfm page inside my virtual server and I did not know what was going on. Finally, I noticed I had a "/" at the end of the DocBase property value (and it made sense since it is a path after all). Once I removed that "/" everything worked perfectly!

Now I have a great Linux Mint 10 server running with Railo and I cannot be more happy about it.

Thank you again!
