Installing Coldfusion on 64 bit Linux machine

Can anyone tell me how to install 32bit Coldfusion on a 64 bit linux server. There isn't a 64bit coldfusion release yet.

Thank you,
Andy

Hi SBWandy,

64-bit Linux is shipped with 32-bit libraries to run 32-bit stuff.  
1) Head over to Sun and download a copy of 32-bit JDK (jdk-1_5_0_09-linux-i586-rpm.bin is what you are after)
2) sh jdk-1_5_0_09-linux-i586-rpm.bin; rpm -ivh jdk-1_5_0_09-linux-i586.rpm
3) then make sure that your JAVA_HOME, PATH, etc is set correctly:
JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.5.0_06
PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH
export JAVA_HOME PATH

Hi Andy,

Sorry I am not an expert in ColdFusion, so I can only give you some directions and pointers that I read and played around:

1) ColdFusion's supported platform is decribed here http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/knowledgebase/index.cfm?id=8be22ed6.  So if you only want to run 32-bit ColdFusion on a 64-bit Hardware + OS, there is no drama (as long as you run 32-bit JVM)
2) If you want to run 32-bit ColdFusion on 64-bit JVM + 64-bit OS + 64-bit Hardware, you need to run ColdFusion on JBoss, you can find the information here: http://corfield.org/blog/index.cfm/do/blog.entry/entry/ColdFusion_MX_7_on_JBoss (be aware that this is not officially supported).

Thanks for the reply. I have Red Hat Enterprise 64-bit and I'm not sure how to get 32-bit JVM running when its already 64. How do I uninstall the 64-bit JVM?

Thank you
