I was pulling my hair out to get Lucee 4.5 to recognize REST CFCs on my Amazon EC2 server running Apache. I am really writing this up as notes so I can find it later.

Step 1

Go to the /etc/httpd/conf directory on your linux machine and edit the httpd.conf file.

nano httpd.conf

ctrl-w /rest

remove the # from the begining of  

ProxyPassMatch ^/rest/(.*)$$1 


save changes? Y

service httpd restart

Step 2

Create a folder in your Lucee root for you test.

mkdir /var/www/html/api/
cd /var/www/html/api/

nano hello.cfc

<cfcomponent rest="true" restpath="/hello"> 
    <cffunction name="myHello" access="remote" returnType="String" httpMethod="get" restPath="/world">
        <cfset res="Hello World!">
        <cfreturn res>

Step 3

Login to the Lucce admin and click on the Rest option on the side bar.

For now enable the List services.

Create a new mapping for /test /var/www/html/api/

Lucee Rest Admin Setting

Step 4

Open a web browser and got to : http://yourserver.com/rest/ and hit enter.

You should see :

Available sevice mappings are:

Then enter http://yourserver.com/rest/test/hello/world

You Should see:

"Hello World!"
