Railux 4 (cfubuntu)

I first want to give credit to Ozzy at

He has publicly made available three linux distributions containing Railo the open source CFML engine.

CFML Virtual Machine Appliance has MySQL database and Ubuntu desktop. It has (almost) everything for CFML development, including;

Here are links to his prior works:

Railux 4 is a 3 GB virtual machine, his smallest version Railux 3.3 was 335MB

I have been working on an open source Railo distribution that includes the Bluefish editor based on Tiny Core Linux VM that starts out at 12MB. After adding the JVM and Railo it is about 250 MB, I hope to get it smaller.

The main reason I am posting this is I did not see any mentions of Railux at and I wanted to make sure that it was a resource that is available to the community.

I have submitted a talk to Ohio Linux Fest on the Tiny Core project & I will post updates to this page.

Here is my current work in progress it is a 250 MB virtual machine. You can download virtualbox here. It will run with any virtual machine software.

The railo needs to be manually started. Details to follow.
