Nooooo, off course users can't change hidden values ;-)
I am not a linux wizard, absolutely not. I never want to be as well, because I think "smart people use easy tools". And all this make/configure/apt-get linux stuff is just soooo 1950. No need to leave comments if you disagree here; I know some people love this console stuff.
But anyway, I needed the Apache-to-Tomcat mod_jk module, so I could get my Railo install to work. I always used Resin + Apache, but the Railo default installation now uses Tomcat, so I wanted to make that switch as well.
It looked very simple to install mod_jk, but since there were no binary (compiled) releases of the module for mac OSX 10.6, it became a hell. Now, after some 7 hours of irritation, here it is: mod_jk.so.
I don't know if it will work on your mac as well, but I hope so for you...
I downloaded and unzipped tomcat 6.0 on my Macbook to the directory /Applications/tomcat/, and tried to run bin/startup.sh. It said it couldn't find "catalina.sh", which is in the same directory. So I did a chmod on catalina.sh:
> sudo chmod 666 /Applications/tomcat/bin/catalina.sh
Then it had a new complaint:
> sh /Applications/tomcat/bin/startup.sh
The BASEDIR environment variable is not defined correctly
This environment variable is needed to run this program
Turned out I needed to give appropriate rights to the tomcat dir. I did it a bit rude, by just giving full access:
> sudo chmod 777 /Applications/tomcat/*
Now it worked like it should. Yippie!
I guess it had to do with the fact that the zip file was downloaded. Mac always asks if I really want to open a downloaded file, so it must have some security restrictions. Anyways, it works, and hope it helps you too :-)
Since I have just been to both Scotch on the Rocks
and the latest CFUGNL meeting, I have heard a lot
about the greatness of CF
Raymond Camden spoke about CF Builder extensions, Terry Ryan talked about it, and, well, there was no reason not to try it again.
So I tried to install, and wrote down some random ramblings...
