Problem Description:
The install incorrectly modifies the httpd.conf file. This and something else has caused issues with Apache not automatically opening index.cfm

Steps to Reproduce:
Install ColdFusion 10 on a fresh instal of OS X Lion.
Using Default Web Sharing provided with the system.

Actual Result:
In the httpd.conf the following changes are made

I have found this problem in the full release. I installed it on a fresh install of OS X Lion. It modified the httpd.conf file in the following ways:
"dex is added"
<IfModule dir_module>
     DirectoryIndex dex index.html
and later on in the php module a x is added in DirectoryIndex and the index.cfm at the end of the line
<IfModule php5_module>
          AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
          AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
          <IfModule dir_module>
DirectoryIndex x index.html index.php index.cfm
and of course at the end it adds
Include "/private/etc/apache2/mod_jk.conf"

Expected Result:
everything except the "dex" and the "x" being added

Any Workarounds:
remove those oddities. However it still didn't fix the problem fully.

New Solution!!! <IfModule dir_module> DirectoryIndex dex index.html </IfModule> ... should have been ... <IfModule dir_module> DirectoryIndex index.cfm index.html </IfModule> Looks as if the parser used to modify httpd.conf in the install is making some mistakes. and the x in the php module shouldn't be there at all. This solved the problem David

Is there some other process which is updating the httpd.conf. We are not able to replicate this issue (Comment added from ex-user id:evelinv)

This has been marked as UserError and withdrawn, but others (including myself) have experienced the same config issues. I think this still needs to be addressed and fixed.
