Problem Description: I updated one of my development boxes, running CF10 in standalone mode (just Tomcat on port 8500). The update downloaded and appeared to stop the server fine, but it never restarted. I have manually stopped and restarted the server on the command line twice and it is completely non-responsive. Not serving static content, CFML, or the CF admin. The log in cfusion/hf-updates/hf-10-00005/ shows nothing but successes. Looking in cfusion/logs/coldfusion-error.log, I see lumps indicating two servlet exceptions and that the cfusion context failed to start. (See attachment)

Any Workarounds: In email follow-up from Krishna with the Adobe CF team, he identified a work-around of copying the cfusion context's WEB-INF folder to /WEB-INF, and restarting the server. Starting the server then works. Stop the server; remove the /WEB-INF folder from the root of the drive, and restart the server.
