i dont understand what the Adobe help mean
where i get the secret für the connector...Server.XML and Properties? In i Start the Shell update connector Script in coldfusion ... error
the Problem is i Need the Update because i Need the "Samesite Attribut
i have ubuntu and apache2 and coldfusion 2016
What version of ColdFusion do you currently have? On which Java version does it run? You may use the following code to find out:
<cfoutput> CF Version: #server.coldfusion.productversion# <br> Java Version: #server.system.properties.java.runtime.version# </cfoutput>
Do I understand correctly that you wish to update? If so, have you followed the instructions for installing ColdFusion 2016 Update 14?
I dont understand complete the introduction...
i have the server.xml (there is the key inside) i have the worker.properties in Coldfusion there is the key inside.
but i dont have under apache/conf any file with properties..
The problem is, i have update it via administrator page. and now the server is down. in cause of that i cannot resolve your output
Since update the CFadmin page still works but the webserver pages don't? If so have you run WSCONFIG and "upgrade" the connector?
Here is a sample of my "server" and "workers" files with edits to hide for you to compare with what you have:
-- begin connector ---->
Connector port="8018" redirectPort="8451" protocol="AJP/1.3" connectionTimeout="60000" tomcatAuthentication="false" secret="hidden-secret-9A8D-7E09C56D8FD0" packetSize="65535" maxThreads="500" address="127.0.0.1"/>
-- end connector ---->
both files are corect in my configuration.
Bit the website is not available... and the admin page is not available...
ColdFusion 2016 server is already running
This account is currently not available.
The server.xml and workers.properties are correct...
Tim, I realize you're likely in a panic for things being down, but we need a lot more info to help you.
For example, you say the cf admin doesn't work. That could mean you had an error in applying the update. Did you check the logs for the update, in hf-updates?
And do you access the cf admin via the builtin web server (like port 8500)? Or without a port, which means it goes through apache? If the latter (which is not supported by default in cf2016 and up), then yes as long as there are problems with the wsconfig, then ALL sites could be down until you fix things.
As for that, have you read the entire page that you linked to? There are many troubleshooting steps at the bottom, as that update introduced important new tomcat security fixes that can break your site until properly configured.
And did you run the wsconfog tool, to do the upgrade? You mention seeing the secret, but you or someone you could have put that there manually. That's only one thing the update 14 wsconfig upgrade would do. It would also update the mod_jk.so. And it would add an address attribute to the ajp connector in the server.xml. That has to be correct, or you will get errors. There can also be errors from sites due to headers being sent from apache to tomcat/cf, that may need to be accommodated.
You have not clarified what errors you get, or what logs you've considered. The mod_jk.log in particular could help with the address or header issues.
Again, the technote offers more, and I have blog posts offering still more.
But when you're in the state you are, you may not want to go chasing rabbits. If you just want the problem solved, I can help directly and immediately. See carehart.org/consulting. And while my online calendar there won't offer slots for 2 more hours, I can help now if you reach out via the support contacts there. (I may not see a reply here for a while, so please don't leave it at that.) I doubt we'd need more than 15, mins to solve things. Maybe an hour if someone dug a hole we need to repair.
But if you prefer to slog it out online without urgency, we're here to help. Carl's a great rssource, as are others who may join in.
I see I missed that BKBK was first to answer. Didn't mean to leave him out in my last comment. Just that I'm reading on a phone and I just missed that in taking it all in and offering that reply.
Tims, did you ever resolve things? If not, did you have any thoughts in reply to comments since your last reply?
i resolve the problem:
at first update 14....
Now the system crash.....
go in the shell,
and start ./wsconfig -upgrade
after thar edit:
<Connector connectionTimeout="60000" maxThreads="500" port="8016" packetSize="65535" protocol="AJP/1.3" redirectPort="8500" secret="XXXXXXXXX" tomcatAuthentication="false" address="127.0.0.1" />
Normal is the coldfusion Port on 8500 Look at the redirectPort. After my update the port was wrong....
Notice the secret and put in the address="127.0.0.1"
now go to
The line is important:
after that i copy the file to /etc/apache2
