    Very impressive topic you have tons of information to offer on this matter. Its always a positive sign to see when you post

  • gold says:

    a nice article

  • Ein kleiner Hinweis: müsste es nicht heissen: /opt/coldfusion9/bin/coldfusion9
    Das wird ja standardmässig so vorgeschlagen und bei mir auch so installiert. Wenn die “9” weggelassen wird, dann wird das Verz. nicht gefunden. Ansonsten ist das Tutorial sehr gut. Danke. LG Uwe

  • Ich meinte natürlich: /opt/coldfusion9/bin/coldfusion

    • sebastian says:

      Hallo Uwe,

      ja “/opt/coldfusion9” wird vorgeschlagen. Ich habe dies jedoch wie in der Anleitung beschrieben zu “/opt/coldfusion” abgeändert:

      Default Install Folder: /opt/coldfusion9

      ENTER AN ABSOLUTE PATH, OR PRESS TO ACCEPT THE DEFAULT
      : /opt/coldfusion

      Du wirst mir spätestens dann dankbar sein wenn du eine Horde von coldfusion9 Servern zu coldfusion10 upgraden musst. Dann darfst du nämlich sonst alle Pfade anpassen 🙂 Deswegen installiere ich das ganze nach “coldfuison” und lasse die Versionsnummer immer weg.

      Gruß

      Sebastian

  • Hi Sebastian, aha. ok. Verstehe. Macht Sinn. Ich wollte auch gerade einen Upgrade von CF8 auf CF9 machen. Irgendwie hat das nicht hingehauen. Aber er meckert schon beim Serial-Key zu Anfang. Der sei nicht korrekt (invalid). Ist aber wohl ein Problem, das ich direkt bei Adobe anfragen muss.

    • sebastian says:

      Hi,

      du kannst auch einfach mal die Developer oder die 30-Tage-Testversion installieren.
      Wenn du den Key dann später im CF-Admin eingibst ist alles ok. Das macht keinen Unterschied ob bei der Installation oder später.

      Gruß

      Sebastian

  • Das ging nicht. Der Upgrade-Key wurde ständig verweigert. Bei Windows geht es, nicht aber bei Linux. 🙁
