Adding new font to PDF using CFDOCUMENT in RAILO

CFDOCUMENT is really useful tag for generating PDF report but client always need customization and need different font. ACF allow separate font management tab in ColdFusion administrator where you can add additional font that you want to use but unfortunately this feature not available on RAILO. While googling on this I have found feature already requested on RAILO bug tracker but yet not available. Also got Google group discussion where it was mention that how you can manually add font for CFDOCUMENT.

Setup MURA CMS under subfolder on Railo Ubuntu

Recently I was working with site migration from windows to ubuntu server. Normally everything goes smoother except case sensitivity of file name. While working with window we never take care about file name case since it doesn't matter in window. Although we use standard for file naming but mistake will not reveal. After renaming file name accordingly everything work fine except one project. In this project I was running ColdBox framework in root folder for all kind of administrative work or business management and there was a folder /website which contain front public website. Front website running under MURA cms. When we move to RAILO and UBUNTU home page load correctly but rest of pages showing 404 error.
