I recently upgraded my Ubuntu installation from 12.10 to 13.04, then "upgraded" it back to 12.10 again. I have no end to problems with legacy apps on 13.04, not to mention some system stability issues. Anyway, during the upgrade, I used tasksel to install the LAMP server, then subsequently tried to install ColdFusion 9 (9 and not 10, because I like my development and production environments to match).
One of the first things I noticed during the CF install attempt was that Apache no longer uses httpd.conf, and instead uses apache2.conf. This seemed to present a problem during installation, because the installation script really wants httpd.conf.
As it turns out, there was a simple solution to this problem, and that was to create a symlink to apache2.conf called httpd.conf.
sudo ln -s apache2,conf httpd.conf
And that's it! Of course, you have to specify the new executable during the install, but that's basically just using apache2 wherever you used to use httpd.
