Response to: Does CFMX end up in user CFMX/Public/Drop Box?

Thanks...Sorry, I am new to server software structure. So, if you wanted to delete the CFMX files would you just navigate the finder to:

/Users/cfmx/Public/Drop Box

and delete all of these files? What about the mirror in the 'root file level'?

    Again, if you followed directions, there should be only 2 files in /Users/cfmx/Public/Drop Box:

    cfmxdnld.bin 115 MB
    cfmxinst.bin 100 MB

    These are the compressed files. You can delete them , once you have a successful install (see below).

    If you have hundreds of subdirectories and files in /Users/cfmx/Public/Drop Box, then you made a mistake in the install procedure -- you decompressed the cfmxinst.bin file to the wrong place. (pretty easy to fix)

    Delete the folder labeled opt within /Users/cfmx/Public/Drop Box.

    Resume the installation procedure at Page 10, Install ColdFusion MX on Mac OS X.

    Take care to do step 3 -- this will cause the opt folder to be created at the root file level (your hard disk) rather than within /Users/cfmx/Public/Drop Box.
