ColdFusion 10 Update 13 (release date January 10 2014) includes support for Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9). It also fixes the issue reported as bug 3653076. This update is cumulative and includes fixes from previous ColdFusion 10 updates. 

Important note: This update applies only to users who are on Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9) or plan to upgrade to Mac OS X Mavericks.

Prerequisites

  1. If you have not already applied ColdFusion 10 Mandatory Update, apply it first. This step is not required if you have ColdFusion 10 Update 8 or later.
  2. On 64-bit computer, use 32-bit JRE for 32-bit ColdFusion and 64-bit JRE for 64-bit ColdFusion.
  3. If the ColdFusion server is behind a proxy, specify the proxy settings for the server to get the update notification and download the updates. Specify proxy settings using the system properties below in the jvm.config for a stand-alone installation, or corresponding script file for JEE installation.
    • http.proxyHost
    • http.proxyPort
    • http.proxyUser
    • http.proxyPassword
  4. For ColdFusion running on JEE application servers, stop all application server instances before installing the update.

Installation

How to apply Update 13

  1. This update can be applied using one of the following two options:
    1. Using Administrator console of the built-in web server: Since the Administrator console isn't accessible using the external web server (Apache), the built-in web server needs to be enabled. Refer this article for instructions on how to enable the built-in web server.
    2. Download the update manually from here and run the "java -jar <path to the downloaded jar file>" to apply the update.
  2. After applying the update, configure/reconfigure the connector with the external web server(Apache) using wsconfig tool. It is available at {cf_install_home}/{instance_name}/runtime/bin.

Generic instructions

For instructions on how to install this update, see Server Update section.

  • You could encounter a Signature Verification Failed error when downloading and installing this update. To resolve this issue, download and install the ColdFusion 10 Mandatory Update first, before installing ColdFusion 10 Update 13. For more information, see this article. If this error persists, then download ColdFusion 10 Update 13, afresh. This error is primarily due to certain issues with download.
  • If you get the following error when installing the update using the Download and Install option, ensure that the folder {cf_install_home}/{instance_name}/hf_updates has write permission: "An error occurred when performing a file operation write on file {cf_install_home}/{instance_name}/hf-updates/hotfix_013.properties".

Uninstallation

To uninstall the update, do one of the following:

  • In ColdFusion Administrator, click Uninstall in Server Update > Updates > Installed Updates.
  • Run the uninstaller for the update from the command prompt. For example, java -jar {cf_install_home}/{instance_home}/hf_updates/hf-10-00013/uninstall /uninstaller.jar

If you can't uninstall the update using the above-mentioned uninstall options, the uninstaller could be corrupted. However, you can manually uninstall the update by doing the following:

  1. Delete the update jar from {cf_install_home}/{instance_name}/lib/updates.
  2. Copy all folders from {cf_install_home}/{instance_name}/hf-updates/{hf-10-00013}/backup directory to {cf_install_home}/{instance_name}/

Remember

  1. In the ColdFusion Administrator, if you see the update listed in both Available Updates and Installed Updates, it could be a caching issue. Do the following:
    1. Navigate to Server Update > Updates > Available Updates and click Check For Updates.
    2. Press Ctrl+F5 to remove the bulb notification from the top banner of the ColdFusion Administrator.
  2. If ColdFusion server doesn't start automatically (ps -ef | grep -i coldfusion command indicates ColdFusion is running, but the ColdFusion Administrator cannot be accessed), restart the server manually after applying the update. This issue is rare and occurs on few Unix or Linux-based operating systems (when buffer allocation size of the machine console is almost zero).
