Upgrade to Lucee 4.5 from Railo issue

I am following the migration steps ( which seems fairly easy )
When I go to restart my server, It will not start. I get this in the logs
– Error opening zip file or JAR manifest missing ??

There is some confusion for me with replacing the railo.jar file with the
lucee.jar file, After the file is replaced should it be called railo.jar
or lucee.jar ?

Also, is there a way to upgrade from Lucee 4.5 to Lucee 5 ?

ok thanks much!

Have you looked at this guide:
http://docs.lucee.org/guides/updating-lucee/migrate-from-railo.html

I thought my introduction lead to that, yes I followed the steps in the
guide.
Which appear easy but are not very clear, so needing a little help here.

Ok, sorry if I stated the obvious. Give me some background info so we are
on the same page: OS, java version, servlet container, etc.

It really should be as easy as replacing the jars. The lucee.jar that you
downloaded from lucee.org will replace the railo.jar file. The jar files
are a set of files, so when you switch them out that is as a set. I don’t
have a list with me but in most Servlet containers they all go into the
same folder. Something like /lib/ext.

You will want to do something like this:

  • File where the railo.jar and associated files are located
  • Remove railo.jar and all of its associated jar files
  • Put the new lucee.jar and its associated jar files in the ( Lucee
    4.5) - for Lucee 5.x all of the jar files are included in the one lucee.jar
    file (You realize jar is just a zip file container with a manifest file)

So for Lucee 4.5 the number of files is like 20 but for Lucee 5 it is just
one.

Hi Chris,
on my installation, the update only started, when I didn’t delete the files
‘railo-inst.jar’ and ‘railo-sl4j.jar’. Both in the folder ‘\railo\lib’.
May be, this could help you.

YES! Michael That was it, I needed to keep the railo-inst.jar and then
the upgrade worked.
