BTW, the bug tracker's "language and platforms" section does give the option for Ubuntu 14, which is supported and is the platform I am running.

It looks like the startup script is expecting chkconfig, but in Ubuntu it should use update-rc.d. To add coldfusion to startup you need to edit the cf_root/cfusion/bin/coldfusion script to include the following (just below the #!/bin/sh): ### BEGIN INIT INFO # Provides: coldfusion # Required-Start: $remote_fs $syslog # Required-Stop: $remote_fs $syslog # Default-Start: 2 3 4 5 # Default-Stop: 0 1 6 # Short-Description: Starts Coldfusion 11 on system boot # Description: Start Coldfusion 11 when the system boots ### END INIT INFO then in the same file, change the CF_DIR to the physical install location (i.e. CF_DIR="/opt/coldfusion11/cfusion/") Then save and close the file and cd to /etc/init.d and issue the following: sudo ln -s /opt/coldfusion11/cfusion/bin/coldfusion Then finally update rc.d by issuing the following: sudo update-rc.d coldfusion defualts This is a hack, not a fix. Adobe should get this fixed in the installer.
