Total Linux Red Hat 9 Newbie here, but learning very quickly and eager to make the final move!
I know that most of you will not be readily familiar with ColdFusion MX... but I do need to get it running on Linux/Apache 2.0.40 ASAP.
I ran the install for ColdFusion MX, and answered all the questions, and it WAS working! Twice!
After each time that I got it working, and started working with the Apache GUI to configure either the default web host, or a new virtual host that I attempted to add, something appears to have changed in the apache configuration file that is not intended... because suddenly, all the actual ColdFusion code in the .cfm template simply appears as TEXT instead of being parsed/processed.
As I said, after each install, it *was* working great -- I had a #Now()# variable output, for example, and it returned an ODBC-formatted date and time with no problem.
Tried to add a virtual host, which failed, and then removed it, and BAM, now I get source code in the browser instead of variable contents, etc.
I don't want to reinstall ColdFusion MX again, even though I know that will probably "fix" the problem. I'd rather know what's actually breaking, and fix it... because obviously, in a production environment, constant reinstallation of the Application Server is just not an option!
I don't know where to start. I don't quite understand how CF is connected to Apache; I've been using CF on IIS since 1997, and I know exactly where I'd go to find such a problem there... but I don't want to "be" "there" anymore!
Please, can anyone get back to me on this, so I can continue moving forward? I'm kinda stuck, and don't want to install and convert more CF sites until I know exactly how to jump this major hurdle in the future!
I thank you very much in advance,
