Overview

You can install Adobe ColdFusion silently. A silent installation does not interact with the user. A silent installation is useful when you install ColdFusion on multiple computers with the same installation options and configuration.

You can use the silent installer to install the ColdFusion server configuration, multiserver configuration, or J2EE configuration. The silent installer runs on all the platforms that ColdFusion supports.

The silent installer does not automatically configure your web server for use with ColdFusion. Use the wsconfig tool to configure your web server after running the silent installer. For more information, see Configuring your system.

Creating the properties file

The silent.properties file is an ASCII text file that defines the installation parameters. Specify the details as provided in the file. Select only the ones that apply to your installation type.

Note:

The properties file below represents that of ColdFusion (2018 release).

If you require more than one installer properties file, give each file a descriptive name.

Running the installer

You run the silent installer in one of the following ways:

  • Through the command line.
  • Through a batch file or script.

The following table lists the command line options of running the installer on different operating systems.

OS

Command

UNIX

./coldfusion_installer.bin [-f propertiesFilePath]

Windows

coldfusion_installer.exe [-f propertiesFilePath]. For example, if you want to install ColdFusion (2018 release) silently, run the command, ColdFusion_2018_WWEJ_win64.exe -f silent.properties.

AIX

java -jar jar_name [-f propertiesFilePath]

Mac OS X

Extract the .zip and install.

After the silent installer completes the installation, open the ColdFusion Administrator to run the configuration wizard. Adobe recommends that you make sure the silent installer has installed the appropriate edition by clicking System Information. If the edition is not correct, enter the serial number in the New License text box and click Submit Changes.

Verifying the installation

After the ColdFusion installation completes, open the log file (Adobe_ColdFusion_2018_Install*) in the installation directory to verify the installation. The silent.properties file specifies the destination of the log file.

Note:

If you use an external web server, run the Web Server Configuration Tool after running the silent installer.

The following are the properties that you must set in the silent.properties file for the .NET installer.

INSTALLER_UI=SILENT
SILENT_JNBRIDGE_INSTALL_FOLDER=C:\\ColdFusion2018DotNetService
SILENT_CF_ROOT=C:\\ColdFusion2018\\cfusion
SILENT_JNBSTANDALONE=false

Use the command below to run the silent installer for .NET add-on.

dotnet_installer.exe -f silent.properties

Set SILENT_JNBSTANDALONE=false/true.

If the value is False, it edits the file cfusion/lib/neo-dotnet.xml.
