Tonight I'm installing ColdFusion 8 at home. So far the install has gone very smoothly. Installed Apache 2 first and then ran the installer for CF8.

One place I got stuck was during the CF install it asked me the location for my Apache binaries. I had no idea and the examples the installer suggested were all for Red Hat related systems.

A quick Google turned up this handy reference: Distros Default Layout on the Apache wiki.

Debian, Ubuntu (Apache 2):

ServerRoot              ::      /etc/apache2
DocumentRoot            ::      /var/www
Apache Config Files     ::      /etc/apache2/apache2.conf
Default VHost Config    ::      /etc/apache2/sites-available/default, /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default
Module Locations        ::      /etc/apache2/mods-available, /etc/apache2/mods-enabled
ErrorLog                ::      /var/log/apache2/error.log
AccessLog               ::      /var/log/apache2/access.log
cgi-bin                 ::      /usr/lib/cgi-bin
binaries (apachectl)    ::      /usr/sbin
start/stop              ::      /etc/init.d/apache2 (start|stop|graceful|configtest)

What was really funny is before starting I did a quick Google on "ubuntu coldfusion" and one of the top links was a post here I had made some time ago called ColdFusion Install on Ubuntu which had some useful links - though most of those dealt with ColdFusion 7.
