Problem Description: When trying to install ColdFusion on Ubuntu 13 the installer fails when trying to connect to Apache.  The Apache config file on Ubuntu is in /etc/apache2/apache2.conf  - but when given that path, or the direct file path, the installer will not 'find' the config file preventing one from continuing the installation.

Steps to Reproduce: Begin ColdFusion installation, select you want to connect to another webserver.  You are prompted to enter the Apache config file (text mentions httpd.conf) but this file does not exist on Ubuntu.  Talking to people online - httpd.conf may be found on RedHat (?)

Actual Result: Cannot proceed with installation.

Expected Result:  Installer should pick up httpd.conf OR apache2.conf

Any Workarounds:

I've installed ColdFusion on Ubuntu before. In fact I blogged about in for v8 ( and this used to work? Ubuntu may not be supported but it is probably one of the top Linux distros and this should be supported?

This is somewhat my fault :) I did not read the system requirements. Ubuntu 13 ships with Apache 2.4 which apparently doesn't have httpd.conf. I installed Ubuntu 12 LTS and things installed fine. I'm wondering if a work around for 13 would be to setup the httpd.conf file as it is on 12. If I have time I may try that in a VM.
