Apache connector

We are running CF2018 Update 3 with external web server (Apache) and we are getting ready to update the server to Update 5. I understand that I’ll have to upgrade to Update 4 before we go to 5. I was reading through documentation (https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/kb/coldfusion-2018-update-5.html#Connectorconfiguration) and it says that we have to “Recreate Connector”. After upgrading to Update 5 I ran the connector and got message that it was already configured:

[root@server1]# ./wsconfig -ws Apache -bin /usr/sbin/httpd -script /usr/sbin/apachectl -dir /etc/httpd/conf/ -v
command line: -ws Apache -bin /usr/sbin/httpd -script /usr/sbin/apachectl -dir /etc/httpd/conf/ -v  
This web server is already configured for ColdFusion.

Do we have to run wsconfig just to make sure mod_jk.so gets updated?

thanks

Dejank, note that you would want to use the available -upgrade argument on that command-line wsconfig tool. This is discussed in the docs, at https://helpx.adobe.com/coldfusion/configuring-administering/web-server-management.html#Webserverconfiguration.

It is unfortunate that this is not discussed more clearly  in the update technotes.

Also, for readers seeing this but who run the wsconfig UI (instead of the command line variant), note that it also has an “upgrade” button, which you can use to upgrade existing web server connections.
