64 Bit ColdFusion with 32 Bit Open Office

If you’re running a 64 bit ColdFusion installation and want to use cfdocument to convert Word, Excel, or PowerPoint files to PDF you may encounter an issue with an incompatibility between the 64 bit dll for ColdFusion and the 32 bit dll for Open Office. Java can’t load and run them both to work together. The good news is that there is a workaround for this issue. You’re going to need to: Download the latest version of Open Office from openoffice.org to your server and install it (you can use the default locations during the installation). Download the Non Sucking Service Manager (NSSM) from┬ánssm.cc and simply save it into a convenient folder – no installation needed. You will then create […]

ColdFusion Error: Truncated class file

I was getting an oddly unhelpful error message when working on some ColdFusion development. Code that I knew ran okay on our development server was having an issue when setting it up to run on my local server. The error simply read “Truncated class file”. It turned out that the settings in the ColdFusion administrator had the component files setup to cache – which you don’t want on a development server where they are frequently changing. So, under Server Settings > Caching I unchecked the Save class files checkbox and used the buttons to clear the cache and everything was working again. Why was this breaking, probably a result of switching between branches in git and / or a file […]

Test and deploy HAProxy Config

We faced a problem that we thought could use an automated strategy; our HAProxy configuration files were getting larger and more complicated and more prone to a small error resulting in the service not restarting appropriately. We currently use Buddy.Works to manage some of our code deployments and we’ve found a relatively simple way to accomplish this. We created a new repository, commited our base HAProxy configuration, setup our pipeline to grab the official haproxy docker instance and run the following: groupadd haproxy && useradd -g haproxy haproxy mkdir -p /etc/ssl/private/ cp dummy.pem /etc/ssl/private/dummy.pem cp haproxy.cfg /usr/local/etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg haproxy -c -f /usr/local/etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg This will create and add the appropriate user/group that our HAProxy runs under, copies over a dummy certificate to […]
