Scheduled Task Error: Unable to display the error's location in a CFML template
Wed, 29 Apr

Recently this error popped up when one of our customers updated their system so we wanted to share how it can be resolved.

 

The following error may occur under ColdFusion Administrator in the scheduled tasks tab:

The error occurred in scheduletasks.cfm: line 188 -1 : Unable to display error's location in a CFML template.

 

This problem occurs if neo-cron.xml file becomes corrupt.

 

Workaround:

Place the following in ColdFusion11\cfusion\lib\neo-cron.xml file and restart the Application Services

<wddxPacket version='1.0'><header/><data><array length='4'><struct type='coldfusion.server.ConfigMap'></struct><boolean value='false'/><string></string><string>txt,log</string></array></data></wddxPacket>


Alternatively, if you have a good backup of the same file you could replace that instead of the above step.

 

We are unable to reproduce any particular events that cause this issue.  If you have run into the problem, feel free to indicate in the comments any potential steps that may have contributed to it.

Installing ColdFusion Hotfix as non root user
Wed, 01 Apr

When you try to run hotfix installer from command prompt, it opens up in UI mode and enforces you to run as root user. This is done to prevent some issues you could run into.

If you don't have the access privileges for root account but you own ColdFusion server's runtime user, and you might want to install as that user.  Silent installation is helpful in this case.

Step 1: Download the hotfix

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

Download the Hotfix from ColdFusion Administrator or directly from the following URL:

https://cfdownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/coldfusion/11/hotfix_004.jar (Change the hotfix version according to your need in this URL)


Step 2: Creating the hotfix properties

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

Create hotfix properties file and fill up with the following key/values depending on your installation.
INSTANCE_LIST value can be a list of comma separated server instances that are created under a particular ColdFusion installation.

INSTALLER_UI=silent
USER_INSTALL_DIR=$/$opt$/$coldfusion11
INSTANCE_LIST=cfusion,cfusionprod2  
#COMMAND_INSTALL applies only to *INX based systems.
COMMAND_INSTALL=true
 
1. The parameter COMMAND_INSTALL=true makes sure that the Standalone server is started as ColdFusion runtime user(default is nobody) rather the root user. So, make sure to pass this param in Unix/Mac/Solaris machines.
2. $/$ makes the installer to interpret the path properly depending on whether it is Windows or Non-Windows platform)

For JEE installation, USER_INSTALL_DIR value is the WAR directory containing CFIDE, WEB-INF and META-INF under it. An example is as follows:
$/$opt$/$jboss-as-7.1.1.Final$/$standalone$/$deployments$/$cfusion.ear$/$cfusion.war


3. And the key INSTANCE_LIST  is NOT required at all for JEE.

You are ready to run the silent installation now.

 

Step 3: Execute the Installer

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


Note: For JEE installation, you should stop JEE server before installing hotfix and restart the JEE server after installation. For standalone installation, this is automatically taken care by the hotfix installer.

1. First switch to the user you want to run in the command prompt so that the hotfix installation runs as this user.

2. Make sure that the files that are under the ColdFusion directory are owned by this user. In case of JEE deployment, owner could be different, please change those to this user once.


3. cd to the directory containing hotfix_004.jar that you have downloaded in your command prompt and run the following command.
>/opt/coldfusion11/jre/bin/java -jar hotfix_004.jar -f <hotfix_properties_file_path_that_you_created_above_in_step2>
