Sometimes ColdFusion services refuse to start normally post server restart:

January 30, 2015 / Rahul Upadhyay

We have received few incidents wherein users were not able to start ColdFusion services after server reboot or while restarting the services manually.

Reason:

Applications dynamically generate ColdFusion files and sometimes also deletes them, but ColdFusion does not remove any old files from the cfclasses folder.

{cf.root}/cfusion/wwwroot/WEB-INF/cfclasses

If you have a huge number of websites on one ColdFusion server, it creates thousands of cfclasses depending on number of incoming requests.  

Solution:

Deleting all the class files of cfclasses folder and restarting the ColdFusion server.

If you are unable to delete the files, rename cfclasses folder and create an empty cfclasses in the same location.

To avoid such issues in future, you can manually delete class files at regular time intervals.

 

If you do not wish to save the class files, you can disable this feature in administrator from Server Settings > Caching

 

 Save class files 
When you select this option, the class files generated by ColdFusion are saved to disk for reuse after the server restarts. Adobe recommends this for production systems. During development, Adobe recommends that you do not select this option.

In the month of August 2014, we had refreshed the update 2 just fixing the bugs arised out of Update 2. Ram has blogged it as Update 3 mistakenly. It should have been blogged as Refreshed build for Update 2. Our apologies for the confusion with regard to the update number.

ColdFusion 11 Installers refreshed-Has fix for Server fails to start on enabling J2EE Session variables and Installation on Japanese OS

January 20, 2015 / Krishna Reddy

During first week of December 2014, we had released Full installers for ColdFusion 11 with update 3 in-built. The build number was 11,0,3,292480.

There were two issues with the build that was released(Full Installers only).

1) After Enabling J2EE Session Variables server hangs on restart/start.

2)On Japanese OSes, installer doesn't recognize the Japanese locale.

If you have applied the update 3 through Hotfix, these 2 issues won't arise for you. And also, #1 is not applicable for J2EE deployments done as EAR or WAR.

 

These two issues are fixed and we have refreshed the Full installers this week. The build number is: 11,0,3,292866

If you have come across #1, either you can download and use the new installer or apply the workaround on your existing server itself.

The workaround is:

Open the xml file C:\ColdFusion11\cfusion\runtime\conf\context.xml (Change it as per your installation path)

and uncomment the tag: <Manager pathname="" />

Existing:

   <!--
    <Manager pathname="" />
    -->

Change it to:

    <Manager pathname="" />

 

If you have come across #2, you have to download and install.
