What could possible go wrong, right?
Since we bought CF 2021 I googled "coldfusion download" which took me here https://www.adobe.com/support/coldfusion/downloads.html
Um, no Linux 64bit installer?
Ok, so I logged into my adobe account and got here: https://www.adobe.com/products/coldfusion/download-trial/try.html
Actually, I don't want to try it 30 days ... we already purchased it ... now I need to fill in a marketing survey?! REALLY?
Well, ... after hitting the "Download" button I got to a page with some getting started content, but no download. I tried a few times with mostly random answers to the survey. Frustrating ...
Turns out the download doesn't start in Chrome 87 so I needed to switch to Safari browser to get the ColdFusion_2021_GUI_WWEJ_linux64.bin
Ok, since I want to update our CF docker image which we use for development I searched for silent installation properties.
https://helpx.adobe.com/de/coldfusion/using/install-coldfusion-2021.html#Silentinstallation oh well, I got a ".bin" file, no zip ... so no silent install for me? 😞
Let's check if ... ah ... another silent installation manual: https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/user-guide.html/coldfusion/installing/installing-coldfusion-silen... this one looks like the one I used for 2016/2018
Let's try installing ... uh oh, install log says: no no no
Install Action: Jump To: Next Administrator Credentials -- Prev: NO JUMPStatus: ERRORAdditional Notes: ERROR - java.lang.StackOverflowError
... and many more
It's just always a pleasure to work with ColdFusion 😉
Have something to add?
