[frs-127] The trial period of FR2.0 is over and I want to return to FR1.0. The uninstaller for FR2.0 appears to be GUI only but the development server is headless. What is the best manual process for uninstalling FR2.0 and restoring FR1.0?

To manually remove FusionReactor 2.0.x and switch back to a previously installed FusionReactor 1.0.x do the following (assuming you use JRun4 installed in directory /opt/jrun4):

  1. Stop the server
  2. Edit /opt/jrun4/servers/coldfusion/SERVER-INF/default-web.xml and change the servlet filter definition for FusionReactor 2.0.x so that it points to the reactor.conf file of FusionReactor 1.0.x (typically in /usr/local/fusionreactor/conf).
  3. Delete the FusionReactor 2.0.x library fusionreactor.jar from the /opt/jrun4/servers/coldfusion/SERVER-INF/lib directory
  4. Make sure the classpath of your server knows how to find the FusionReactor 1.0.x jar file. Either add it to jvm.config (which is what the FusionReactor 1.0.x installer does) or copy it into the /opt/jrun4/servers/coldfusion/SERVER-INF/lib directory.
  5. To make the FusionReactor native library work correctly make sure that the directory containing the file libFusionReactor.so of FusionReactor 1.0.x is included in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable or add it to the java.library.path property in jvm.config.
  6. Restart the server.
