We have recently installed CF11 Enterprise (64-bit) on a Windows 2012 (64-bit) Server running IIS 8.5. When I check for Updates from the ColdFusion Admin I get the following error "Not able to connect to Update Site: Connection Failure: Status code unavailable".
I have verified the Update Site URL under Settings is set to http://www.adobe.com/go/coldfusion-updates. I have also tried changing this URL to https://cfdownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/coldfusion/xml/updates.xml as someone in a post recommended with no luck.
Please advise, we are trying to apply the latest Update for CF11 and this is holding us back.
You could try manually download (link above) update4 then place JAR in ColdFusion11\cfusion\hf-updates and run update from within CFadmin.
Thanks Carl! This really helps us start moving. I will try pulling the update manually. Question... for future updates, how would I be able to find and pull them manually myself.
I gather update5 will be like follows etc for update6 and on.
You can apply the updates manually as well:
-CMD prompt as administrator
-ColdFusion11\jre\bin>java -jar ColdFusion11\cfusion\hf-updates\hotfix_004.jar
-follow the graphic interface
Remember some updates increment the IIS connector so may need to run ColdFusion11\cfusion\runtime\bin\wsconfig.exe as administrator to apply new isapi_redirect.dll. Be mindful if workers.properties has customised settings when using wsconfig.exe tool.
Thank You. This works for me.
