There are a few different ways to get Lucee up and running on Windows, you can Download and Install the traditional Installer, or the Express version (which just runs out of a folder) or you can use CommandBox which provides an automated way to manage and deploy both Lucee and Adobe Coldfusion servers (it's sort of like Docker but a million times less complex)
Here are some in depth guides to setting up an environment to run Lucee on a Windows, you probably won't need to delve into the following sections if you are using one of the above approaches as they automate most of this.
- Installing the Boncode connector and mod_cfml
- Installing Oracle Java on Windows
- Installing Apache Tomcat on Windows
- Configuring Tomcat as a Windows service
- Starting Tomcat and verifying the installation on Windows
- Installing and configuring Lucee (JAR files) on Windows
- Securing Tomcat and Lucee on Windows
- Optimizing IIS
- Securing IIS
- Scripts installing Tomcat and Lucee on Windows
- Installing the JDK on Windows
- Installing the server JRE on Windows
- A Windows machine with Full administrator privileges
- Basic understanding of the Windows Registry, file system and user management
- Basic familiarity with the command line
All of the tasks described in this guide can be integrated into a software management tool such Microsoft SCCM. Everything can be done on the command line, which is perfect for scripting and packaging.
