Ok, so this is not the most bleeding edge post, but hopefully useful if you need it. Here’s what you need to do if you need to get ColdFusion8 to start on server reboot (since it doesn’t appear to install itself as a service) using Ubuntu server.
First, create a service script and make sure it’s executable like so…
sudo touch /etc/init.d/coldfusion sudo chmod 755 /etc/init.d/coldfusion
Next, you need to actually put something in the script…
sudo nano /etc/init.d/coldfusion
Here’s what to put in the file…
#! /bin/sh ### BEGIN INIT INFO # Short-Description: ColdFusion8 service ### END INIT INFO file=/opt/coldfusion8/bin/coldfusion case "$1" in stop) $file stop ;; status) $file status ;; restart) $file restart ;; *) $file start ;; esac exit 0
Finally, you need to tell Ubuntu to use your service and make it available
