Resolving "500 Internal Server Error" with ColdFusion 10 Update 14

October 16, 2014 / Krishna Reddy

  Administrator | Adobe ColdFusion 10 | ColdFusion | Connector | General | Hotfix

We have seen that some of you have not been able to get the web server connector working after applying update 14.

We did our investigation and following is our finding.

The connector binaries of ColdFusion 10 update 14 are built on top of  VC++ runtime 2012 update 4.

Installation of VC++ runtime requires admin privileges. If the ColdFusion service runs as administrator or system account, the update itself install the VC++ runtime as this account would have installation privileges.

If your ColdFusion service account is not running as administrator or system account, applying the hotfix from administrator can't install VC++ runtime and you will get "500 internal server error" after configuring the connector.

In this case, you need to manually install VC++ runtime 2012 32-bit and/or 64 bit depending on whether Web server is 32-bit or 64-bit.

You can download VC++ runtime here at:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=30679

When you install hotfix manually, administrator privileges are enforced and so the installation of VC++ runtime is automatically taken care by the updater.

 

 

 

 


ColdFusion 10 support with Java 8

October 16, 2014 / Krishna Reddy

  ColdFusion | ColdFusion Secure Profile | General | Hotfix

With Update 14 for ColdFusion 10, Java 8 is supported.

If you are using ColdFusion Web services you will have to do a one-time change manually.

You should copy tools.jar manually from {JDK8_Home}/lib to {cf_install_home}/cfusion/lib/. ColdFusion Web Services will fail if this is not done. Only JDK contains tools.jar not the jre. You don't have to install JDK on the machine where ColdFusion is installed. You can just have jre 8 on this machine and get tools.jar from any other machine's JDK installation.

And also make sure that the earlier stubs are cleared fom {cf_install_home}/cfusion/stubs/ to get the newly compiled classes.

Originally ColdFusion 10 was shipped with jre 1.6. With that build we released tools.jar of jdk1.6.

For Windows there was a refreshed installer release. With this jre include was 1.7 and so we have shipped tools.jar of jdk1.7.

Since, we are not releasing new installers and still if you want ColdFusion to run on jre 1.8.

Unless you want Web services, it is not necessary that you have to upadte it.

The reason why we have not shipped this through updater is that it can break the existing users those who have n't upgraded their jre.

How to change/upgrade JDK version of ColdFusion server

September 16, 2014 / Nimit Sharma

  Adobe ColdFusion | ColdFusion | General

This post is from my personal blog nimitsharma.wordpress.com

 

In this post, we discuss how to upgrade the latest minor version of JDK(Java Development Kit) of the ColdFusion server. ColdFusion can run only on top of JDK or JRE with Server VM. Oracle also started providing separate download link for JRE and Server JRE. ColdFusion only works with JDK or Server JRE and not with Client JRE [For more details refer article].

 
There are two ways to change the JDK or Server JRE of the ColdFusion server:
 
  1. Using ColdFusion administrator console.
  2. By changing the JDK or Server JRE path from the jvm.config file.
 
1. Using ColdFusion administrator console.
 
 
2. By changing the JDK or Server JRE path from the jvm.config file



Important Note:

  • It is not recommended to change the JDK version on the production servers without any prior testing in the staging environment.
  • Any SSL certificates added to the previous JDK will also need to be re-added to the new JDK(cacerts) file.
