    Dick,

    I downloaded RHL 7.2 and everything worked fine, except for a problem with permissions. CFMX will only run if I start it from the Administrator account that I was logged in as when I gnutar-ed it. Not a big deal. Thanks for a great set of articles, very well written and well documented. I'm looking forward to the database article.

      I can understand why that would be true, and actually would ecpect it.

      CFMX is creating a lot of files (logs, caches, Java Class files, Administrator settings, etc).

      I would expect that any other user would not have write and/or execute permissions to many of these files

      That's why the install and port procedures instructed you to setup a separate user to run CFMX.

        Now I'm confused. Are you saying that I need administrator privileges to install and start CFMX, but once started it runs as another user (with fewer privileges)? OK, that makes sense to me too.
