How to manually config Apache 2.2 httpd.conf file to map cfm pages
You can copy wsconfig.exe to the server hosting Apache and run it there. The wsconfig.exe can run independently and doesn't even require being on the same server as ColdFusion itself (A "distributed configuration" is typically configured by copying wsconfig to the webserver on a remote machine and using the tool there to connect to CF on a different machine).
To get wsconfig.exe, you could do a temporary install of CF on a "dummy" or test machine, grab the wsconfig.exe, then copy it to the server with Apache.

Hey I installed Coldfusion 10 on Ubuntu 13.04 running Apache but the coldfusion installer keeps asking for the directory where HTTPD.Conf file is located but there is none, infact there is no httpd.conf file what I have is a conf.d directory and an apache2.conf file. So after I install and start the CF server Apache does not recognize the .CFM pages. How can I fix this issue? Any help is appreciated.
I struggled with this too, until finally abandoning 13.04 (for other reasons) and going back to 12.10. But I'll be filing this tidbit for future releases!
Incidentally, I made a "dummy" (i.e. empty) httpd.conf file, which allowed me to install CF10, but I never got around to seeing if it actually worked. I think Pete's solution is probably a better one.
