  ColdFusion MX on Mac OS X, Part 3
Subject:   Server running, but not recognizing new directory

Response to: Server running, but not recognizing new directory

Gnutar always gives those messages, so there was nothing you did wrong -- the install was OK.


In a Terminal window, navigate to wwwroot:


cd /opt/coldfusionmx/wwwroot


Then list the contents of wwwroot:


ls -l


You should see a listing similar to the one below (the directory I created is mycfmxapps:

drwxrwxrwx   10 cfmx  wheel   340 Dec 12 10:05 CFIDE
drwxrw-rw- 21 cfmx wheel 714 Dec 2 04:34 WEB-INF
drwxrwxrwx 25 cfmx wheel 850 Jul 22 11:13 cfdocs
drwxrwxrwx 127 cfmx wheel 4318 Dec 6 06:19 mycfmxapps
If you created your directory properly, you should see it listed with the proper permissions in the first column: d indicates a directory. Followed by three sets of permissions, rwx (read, write, execute) for the Owner, Group and All Users.


If this looks OK, with your browser navigate to:


http://127.0.0.1:8500/


You should see a list similar to:

Index of /
------------------------------------------------------------------------
.DS_Store 6148 12/14/02 12:00 PM
CFIDE/ dir 12/12/02 10:05 AM
cfdocs/ dir 07/22/02 11:13 AM
mycfmxapps/ dir 12/06/02 06:19 AM
------------------------------------------------------------------------
And, you should be able to see your the contents of your directory by navigating the browser to:


http://127.0.0.1:8500/mycfmxapps/
