Coldfusion 10 "failed signature verification"

Posted by Dark Training on November 1, 2012 tags: | coldfusion | centos | linux

When installing Coldfusion 10 on CentOS 6.3, after you install and login to the Coldfusion administrator page you will be given a prompt to update, however when you update you will get a pop up that "failed signature verification".

The issue is that Adobe had to revoke the old cert:

All ColdFusion updates are now signed with the new code signing certificate because of a code signing certificate revocation. This mandatory Update ensures that your current installation of ColdFusion 10 is updated with the new code signing certificate. This update is also required for proper functioning of the auto update functionality in ColdFusion 10. Adobe strongly recommends that you apply this update.

You can grab the update from here:

You will need java to run the update:

yum install -y java
java -jar cf10_mdt_updt.jar

Now log back into the admin console and you should now be able to fetch the updates and install them.
