Coldfusion pages wont load on Apache 2.4 on Mac Yosemite

I have Coldfusion 11 installed on my Mac which is running Yosemite. Apache 2.4 is also running.
I can start Coldfusion with no problem and also start Apache. all .html files will respond as expected on Apache but when loading any file with a .cfm extension the browser just hangs with no response.

Has anyone come across this?

Apache error log should tell more.

I have checked the log and there is no error. Apache seems to be running with no issue.
I re-installed CF last night and it worked ok until I tried to add the jConnector for MySQL. When I did the CF restart all the pages began to hang again

For anyone else falling foul of this situation, this article fixed the issue for me.

http://www.we3geeks.org/2014/03/08/a-gotcha-adobe-coldfusion-10-apache-tomcat-j2ee-sessions/

It turns out that it was enabling J2EE session management in the CFadmin that was causing the issue. Once you do this and then restart Coldfusion all .cfm pages just hang. No errors are logged in the CF logs and none in Apache either.

Once the /Applications/ColdFusion11/cfusion/runtime/conf/content.xml file is edited and CF is restarted everything works again ok!

Usually you ask in relevant topic areas and wait 24h for answers.
Coldfusion is application server btw.
You did not provide even a single bit from apache error log.

Thanks for your input gheist. Did you read my response? No errors were logged in the CF or Apache.
We don't all have 24hrs to wait for a response. I got the answer via Stack Overflow in the end.

I dug around Google until I solved it as there was very little response from EE
