I have the new Mountain Lion OS X installed, with the Apple Server app as my webserver - however I can't get Coldfusion 10 to install. The issue arises because the installer can't find the Apache config file. Normally the file would be called "httpd.conf", but in the Server app it's called "httpd_server_app.conf".
You can supply the correct directory to the installer, but it cannot find the filename it is looking for, so gives a "cannot find file" error, and the installer will go no further.
Surely there must be a way to manually install the Apache connector or something, where you can specify the name of the relevant configuration file or some other workaround?
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated - was really looking forward to running CF10 on my new Mac!
Ok, I managed to sort an answer with some help from http://www.giancarlogomez.com/2012/07/coldfusion-10-on-os-x-mountain-l ion.html
You need to make a copy of "httpd_server_app.conf" and rename it to be "httpd.conf". Then run the installer, and point the apache config directory as "/Library/Server/Web/Config/apache2/" - the installer will find the "httpd.conf" file it was looking for and run as it should do.
Once completed you can delete your original "httpd_server_app.conf" file (or keep as a backup), and rename your "httpd.conf" file in it's place as "httpd_server_app.conf". The installer creates a file called "mod_jk.conf" that is added as an include to your Apache conf file - so that's the only change to your config.
It's frustrating that the installer demands a file named a certain way - it should really ask for the file name, but nevermind - sorted now with OS X Mountain Lion, Server App and CF10 all running nicely (fingers crossed)
Many thanks to Giancarlo for helping me out.
