Hi Guys - I have a Coldfusion10 update 16 is running on standalone Linux server. I have 5 apps on this Coldfusion. Now I am trying to update the Coldfusion with update 23. When the command line prompts to enter the "Where is ColdFusion 10 located?" I provided and tried all the below paths and none of them is recognized by coldfusion.

/opt/coldfusion10

/opt/coldfusion10/app1/

/opt/coldfusion10/app1/wwwroot

I tried to reach support as we are on support contract, but they unable to help as the CF10 reached eol.

-----------------

the following license agreement:

I sincerely appreciate any help with this.

Have you tried /opt/coldfusion10/cfusion/ (with a trailing slash)?  Are you using proper cAsE in the path (ie, as it actually is cased)?

Just throwing some things against the wall to see if any of it sticks.

I tried using a trailing slash. but no luck. To let you know no cfusion is under /opt/coldfusion10/. I just have all the 5 apps listed there.

Here is the command I am using. they all have cfusion user and group permissions.

/opt/java/current/jre/bin/java -jar /opt/coldfusion10/app1/hf-updates/hf-10-00023/hotfix_023.jar

Try the following in terminal: whereis -l coldfusion

Or you could try: locate coldfusion

That's a real head-scratcher.

Unfortunately, I'm not the install expert that Charlie Arehart is.  Hopefully he will find this thread and provide some wisdom.  He's quite good with issues such as this.

Wish I could have been of more help.

No problem. I do appreciate your quick input on this so far.

Adobe recommended to move the hotfix jar to /opt/coldfusion/jre/bin and directly run from there. I tried and it didn't work for me. Let me reboot my VM and see whether that fixes the issue.

I took backup of the instances.xml and then added the above content and ran it. Still same error. 'directory not found' when i choose the default and hit enter. To let you know there is no 'cfusion' dir under /opt/coldfusion10 ( This is not existing > /opt/coldfusion10/cfusion).

But the cfusion is under /home/cfusion. I mentioned this because your instances.xml tags has the cfusion path.

  <server>

<name>cfusion</name>

<directory>/opt/coldfusion10/cfusion</directory>

  </server>

Hi,

Thanks, they have cfusion folder because it is the default instance. When you install an update, it checks the installation directory(/opt/coldfusion10/11/2016) and for instances, it looks for instances.xml which has an entry for all the instance and that is where it is failing. The user can verify this.

Thanks,
