Subject Re: Getting OpenBlueDragon and Tomcat to traverse directories
Date Mon, 28 Jul 2008 19:12:13 GMT
Hi Ross,

Alan Williamson, the chair of the OpenBlueDragon Steering Committee has
stated that he will blog about how to set up OpenBD in a way that most
CFML developers are familiar with very soon. (I've been pestering him
about it as well - since I haven't been able to get OpenBD/Tomcat to
work how I want it to either.)

When he does, I will be releasing a Linux installer that should automate
*most* of the installation process. OpenBD users still may have to get
their hands dirty and modify some config files when setting up their
sites, but the basic install should be covered. I'll automate as much as
I can.

The installer will support CentOS to start with and branch out to other
distros as I have time to adapt the installer to them.


Warm regards,
Jordan Michaels
