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.
Go to the /etc/httpd/conf directory on your linux machine and edit the httpd.conf file.
Create a folder in your Lucee root for you test.
Login to the Lucce admin and click on the Rest option on the side bar.
