Problem Description:

When uninstalling ColdFusion 10 with an Apache configuration, the uninstaller removes the mod_jk.conf file during the process.  I see this as undesirable behavior as users often modify their mod_jk.conf file with all sorts of custom configuration such virtual hosts, etc.  ColdFusion should leave that file there during uninstall.

Here's a use case to illustrate the issue. I recently uninstalled CF 10 so that I could reinstall (a new version).  The uninstaller removed my mod_jk.conf file, resulting in the loss of about a dozen or so virtual hosts I had configured.  I had a backup, but I suspect many users don't. The last think you want is to go removing a configuration file that the user may have every intention of continuing to use after the uninstall.

+1 This has hit me before as well. CF should not remove any file that has had modifications from default.
