This is really cool. Until I found this article I was on the verge of doing something I vowed I would never do again once I purcheased my mac a couple years ago, and that is buy a PC, just so I could run CFMX.
Everything worked perfectly except, the opt folder that was created was locked. Even logged in as administrator I wasn't able to access the folder. I rebooted in OS9 so that I could add the shell script to the bin folder. But then I thought that if I have to chmod this shell script then I can chmod the folders. After rebooting in OSX, using the terminal window as root, I was able to chmod the bin folder as well as the wwwroot folder. everything works like a champ now.
I don't know if this locking of the folders is supposed to happen or not. It surprised me because you didn't mention anything like this happening in the article. And I don't know if it has anything to do with me using the demo version of Open Base or just maybe I missed something else along the way. Thanks again and I can't wait for some more great articles if the future.
