Installing Tomcat and Lucee on Mac OS X using the Lucee WAR file
Download a copy of Apache Tomcat 8.5 core, available at the Tomcat download page.
Install Tomcat by extracting the downloaded archive. Extract the archive to your home folder, /Users/
Go into tomcat/webapps/. Delete the /ROOT/ folder and /ROOT.war/.
Next, go to the Lucee download page and download the latest lucee war file.
Rename the lucee war file to /ROOT.war/ (note the capitalization).
Copy the renamed /ROOT.war/ file into tomcat/webapps/.
Next, open a web browser to localhost:8080/lucee/admin/web.cfm. You should see the Lucee Web admin login screen. Lucee is now installed.
You may want to install mod_cfml to use Apache
From this point you can configure your Tomcat instance and set up your applications in Lucee.
