coldfusion 8 on Ubuntu Hardy

You need to install libstdc++5 to support "C++ custom tags, webservices and some cfimage
functionality".

sudo apt-get install libstdc++5


Then run the installer:

sudo ./coldfusion-801-lin.bin


Here is the configure web server section, (wow!! It actually does it... Not like the old days :P ):
===============================================================================
Configure Web Servers
---------------------

Please configure your web server(s). If you do not configure a web server the
built-in web server will be used on port 8500 or the next available port.

1- Add Web Server Configuration
->2- Continue with installation

Choice: 1

****************************************************

->1- Apache
2- Sun ONE Web Server (iPlanet)
3- Cancel

What kind of web server are you configuring:

What directory contains your Apache configuration file (httpd.conf)? (For
example, on Red Hat Linux it could be located in the /etc/httpd/conf
directory if you installed from an rpm, or for SuSe Linux, it could be in
/etc/apache2)

Directory: /etc/apache2

****************************************************


Where is the Apache program binary file? (For example, on Red Hat Linux it
could be /usr/sbin/httpd if you installed from an rpm, or for SuSE Linux it
could be located at /usr/sbin/httpd2) If you have more than one instance of
Apache on your computer, enter the binary file location for the Apache web
server that will use ColdFusion. (Note: this is not the Apache start and
stop script.)

File: /usr/sbin/apache2

****************************************************


Where is the control file that you use to start and stop the Apache web
server? (For example, this could be /etc/init.d/httpd on Red Hat Linux if
you installed from an rpm, /usr/sbin/apache2ctl on SuSe Linux, or it could
be /usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl on hand-compiled versions.)

File: /etc/init.d/apache2

****************************************************


Please configure your web server(s). If you do not configure a web server the
built-in web server will be used on port 8500 or the next available port.
