I had to re-setup my personal VPS with Railo and decided this time that rather then use Resin and compiling the connectors to apache by hand I'd give the VivoTech installers a go and use tomcat.
These installers are amazing. My VPS is running Ubuntu 9.04 I installed apache and mysql then downloaded the installer, chmod the installer and ran it.
A was asked a few questions about config file locations ( all which had defaults for Ubuntu and CentOS ) and let the installer run.
I then hit the IP address of the server once it was done http://ip.address/railo-context/admin/web.cfm and I was in. So easy!
The installer even starts on boot. Just to be sure I rebooted the server and sure enough worked perfectly.
I then pointed a subdomain to the IP and added a site to apache and tomcats server.xml. Downloaded the most recent jdk ( 1_6_22 ) and moved that to the the railo install folder. Then edited catalina.sh to up the memory from 256 to 512 ( even though I probably don't need it ).
I would not hesitate to say that as of right now Railo is as easy ( maybey easier ) to install as ColdFusion 9 ( which I also did a how to here : http://www.howtoforge.com/installing-apache-and-coldfusion-9-on-ubuntu-9.04 ) which is a really good thing.
Also I wanted ORM support so I wanted the Bleeding Edge version of Railo, jumped into the admin, swapped the update URL to http://dev.getrailo.org and hit update. Then I was advised that I need the jars for ORM and with a second click that was also setup.
I also just heard from Sean that nearly all tags are avaliable in cfscript and here is the reference for Railo 3.2: http://wiki.getrailo.com/wiki/3-2:CFSCRIPT
If you have thought about Railo at all now is defiantly the time to check it out!
