Autostart coldfusion on boot in Ubuntu

Posted 04-22-2010 at 12:10 PM by drask

My current job requires that I work with Coldfusion 9. I have it set up to run on an Ubuntu 9.10 desktop with apache2. Everything installs pretty well (there is one dependency of libstdc++5 that is no longer supported by Ubuntu and must be downloaded from another repository like http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool....6-18_i386.deb as detailed in http://www.howtoforge.com/installing...on-ubuntu-9.04) but the option to have Coldfusion startup when...

I am just so sick, and so tired of ignorance! Not sure if it's a false sense of entitlement, pure laziness or what. At first I thought it was only us Americans and our Walmart Mentality, but this seems to be a world wide epidemic!

Irssi is a terminal based IRC client for UNIX systems. It also supports SILC, XMPP and ICB protocols via plugins.

Even the dpkg bot in #debian agrees irssi rocks:

Simple easy script to setup irssi for you: Irssi Config Generator http://www.matthew.ath.cx/programs/irssiconfig...

Before asking here or on the <debian-user> mailing list, you should read the Installation Guide,
or if you already have Debian installed, the Debian Reference.
Also take the time to read:
Linux is NOT Windows : http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm
What we expect you have already Done. : http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=47078
