We installed Coldfusion 2021 Update 3 (https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/kb/coldfusion-2021-update-3.html) to mitigate the log4j vunerability, and in the instructions it says to update the web connector:
After applying the update, you must upgrade the existing web server connectors.
However it does not say anywhere how to install the connector. When I run this command
# ./wsconfig -ws Apache -bin /usr/sbin/httpd -script /usr/sbin/apachectl -dir /etc/httpd/conf/ -v
I get a message that the web server has already been configured.
We are on the vesion below running on Centos 7.9:
[info] jk_log_version::jk_connector_version.h (21): Connector Version: 321158
How do we update the web server connectors?

dk, you're not wrong in your observation (and sorry to see that somehow no one ever replied to your question).
So first, note that when that wsconfig tool at the command line, there is a -upgrade arg. FWIW, that's documented in the docs about using the tool, and it would be shown also if you did wsconfig --help. Second, those using the wsconfig gui (rather than at cmd line) will find that (since cf2016) there is now an "upgrade" button in the UI. And FWIW I have a blog post with more on these options for upgrading the connector.
But I agree 100% that the update technote needs to have info on the connector. In fact I have just created a tracker ticket for it. Interested folks should add a vote and/or comment there.
Thanks for the answer. Your blog post is exactly what I was looking for.
Great to hear. Thanks for the update, and the marking of a correct answer.
