  ColdFusion MX on Mac OS X, Part 3
Subject:   BEFORE YOU INSTALL CFMX on Mac OSX...

First, it appears I've done it! On Tomcat, no less. If you have the Tomcat instructions from developer.apple.com and the MM instructions for CFMX, you can get there from here. Being a rather new-to-unix person I took a LOT for granted. Below are some lessons learned.


Things you need to know:


1. gnutar: You must use this to untar the Tomcat .tar.gz file. (Initially, I renamed the file, dropping the .gz, and used the standard tar command. Bad.)


2. If you're reinstalling after a failed first (or 2nd or 3rd... ) attempt of ColdFusion, DON'T reuse earlier files. Do a clean install. I tried taking shortcuts and only got errors sooner.


3. DON'T BLOCK POP-UPS!!! I'm using Safari and at first use I went to Safari Menu > Block Pop-Up. When you first go to the CF admin page, YOU GET A POP-UP. Unless pop-ups are blocked.


Now... I just need to find about about getting a serial number for Mac...



THANKS EVERYONE!
