Now that our ACME stack has been installed, let's setup some isolated development areas. To do this, we need to create one or more Virtual Hosts in Apache and setup some local domains.
We're in the final stretch. We've got Apache, ColdFusion and MySQL up and running. Now we need a way to write some actual ColdFusion code in Linux. For that, we need the Eclipse IDE and a few plug-ins, primarily CFEclipse.
We've got [A]pache and [C]oldFusion installed so far. In part three, we're installing 64-bit [M]ySQL.
I've got a Dell that shipped with Vista. I installed Ubuntu 8.04 on a 2nd hard drive and had it install Grub so I could boot between the two. After playing games on Vista, I rebooted to do some work in Ubuntu. The machine wouldn't boot due to Grub error 17, but after doing something stupid it booted just fine.
Since ColdFusion 6, it's been possible to run on 64-bit systems with 64-bit JVMs, just not officially. (If you're nice, I'll post how later.) 64-bit support was officially introduced for ColdFusion with version 8, but only for Solaris SPARC. As of the 8.0.1 release, Adobe gave us offical support for 64-bit on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.
