When launching CFMX, don’t forget the Sudo

by John Wilker in EffectiveUI

Was trying to checka WSDL today on my mac install of CFMX, and got an AXIS permission denied error. After consulting with Simeon ( i knew it’d be something silly, and it was) i discovered that when using my handy little applescript app, it wasn’t firing the shell script off as root. Well duh, that would explain my problem.

After a little poking around, I found this. which said this.

do shell script "command" user name "me" password "mypassword" with administrator privileges


I went back to my AppleScript app, made the change, and viola, WSDL loaded just fine. Don’t be a Wilker and forget to run things as root.

Simeon pointed out I coulda changed the entire directory to be mine, so it’d all work under my login, but i opted to figure out my as root problem.


Now if I could get my MS SQL data to MySQL I’d be in 7th, or probably 8th or 9th heaven
