The Adobe ColdFusion team have released: ColdFusion 9.0.1 : Cumulative Hot fix 2. The this link One of the items that caught my attention is the bug forx for OS X Lion.

Bug # 86992 ColdFusion multiserver instance does not start properly on Mac OS X Lion (10.7.x).

I downloaded the Hot Fix and started the whole process from scratch. I had already blown away my ColdFusion 9 from my MacBook Pro which has OS X Lion to I could try another version of ColdFusion.

  1. clean up my system
  2. Install ColdFusion 9.0 in multi server mode
  3. Test real quick - yes 9.0 is running (it always did)
  4. Install ColdFusion 9.0.1 in Multi-server mode
  5. Test real quick, no it won't even start (which is also normal)
  6. Install ColdFusion 9.0.1 Cumulative Hot fix 2
  7. Test real quick and yes it runs.
However, one bug still remains that I can see. The ColdFusion Admin Settings Summary and Info pages DO NOT LOAD.

I've done a reboot a couple of times now and still no luck. But at least ColdFusion 9.0.1 Multi Server is running on OSX Lion.
