Adobe ColdFusion 11 | ColdFusion 11 | General | Hotfix
When you try to run hotfix installer from command prompt, it opens up in UI mode and enforces you to run as root user. This is done to prevent some issues you could run into.
If you don't have the access privileges for root account but you own ColdFusion server's runtime user, and you might want to install as that user. Silent installation is helpful in this case.
Step 1: Download the hotfix
Download the Hotfix from ColdFusion Administrator or directly from the following URL:
https://cfdownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/coldfusion/11/hotfix_004.jar (Change the hotfix version according to your need in this URL)
Step 2: Creating the hotfix properties
Create hotfix properties file and fill up with the following key/values depending on your installation.
INSTANCE_LIST value can be a list of comma separated server instances that are created under a particular ColdFusion installation.
#COMMAND_INSTALL applies only to *INX based systems.
1. The parameter COMMAND_INSTALL=true makes sure that the Standalone server is started as ColdFusion runtime user(default is nobody) rather the root user. So, make sure to pass this param in Unix/Mac/Solaris machines.
2. $/$ makes the installer to interpret the path properly depending on whether it is Windows or Non-Windows platform)
For JEE installation,
USER_INSTALL_DIR value is the WAR directory containing CFIDE, WEB-INF
and META-INF under it. An example is as follows:
3. And the key INSTANCE_LIST is NOT required at all for JEE.
You are ready to run the silent installation now.
Step 3: Execute the Installer
Note: For JEE installation, you should stop JEE server before installing hotfix and restart the JEE server after installation. For standalone installation, this is automatically taken care by the hotfix installer.
1. First switch to the user you want to run in the command prompt so that the hotfix installation runs as this user.
2. Make sure that the files that are under the ColdFusion directory are owned by this user. In case of JEE deployment, owner could be different, please change those to this user once.
3. cd to the directory containing hotfix_004.jar that you have downloaded in your command prompt and run the following command.
>/opt/coldfusion11/jre/bin/java -jar hotfix_004.jar -f <hotfix_properties_file_path_that_you_created_above_in_step2>

We look forward to your valuable feedback and suggestions.
NOTE: Users who have already applied ColdFusion 11 Update 4 pre-release build, they need to uninstall it and re-download the latest build of ColdFusion 11 Update 4. The build number after applying this update should be 11,0,04,293127(PreRelease).
Adobe ColdFusion Builder 3 | Thunder | Adobe ColdFusion Builder | CFBuilder | ColdFusion | General | Hotfix | Mobile | PDF Generation | Updates
Update 3 for ColdFusion Builder 3 is released.
This update is primarily a companion update to ColdFusion 11 Update 3 which ahs added support for PhoneGap 3.5.
This is just an Update for the ColdFusion Builder 3 installation that were installed prior to the build number 292483. Corresponding full installers with this update embedded were already released in December. Automatic update notification takes care of notifying you, if this update applies to your installation or not. So, if your installation is the one that was released in December, this update is not applicable and won't show you the notification.
This update has the following 3 bug fixes.
Remote servers details not retained on Builder restart.
Exception when generating build for mobile project
PhoneGap version for Mobile project should be updated to 3.5
Through ColdFusion Builder 3, you would get an automatic notification to apply the Update.
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
Administrator | Adobe ColdFusion | Adobe ColdFusion 11 | Announcements | Application Server | ColdFusion | Docs | General | Hotfix | Session Management | Updates
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="" />
<Manager pathname="" />
Change it to:
<Manager pathname="" />
If you have come across #2, you have to download and install.
