Problem Description:

Connector recreation is required after updating CF 2018 to Update 5. That causes the Apache to randomly fails to start.

Steps to Reproduce:

Install CentOS 7, Apache, ColdFusion 2018, Update 4 (required before Update 5), Update 5, recreate connector (extract from {cf-installation-dir}/cfusion/runtime/lib/wsconfig.jar and copy to required dir eg. /etc/httpd/conf), restart CF services (or entire server) and then restart/check status of Apache (httpd). If it's failed go and check journalctl -xe or systemctl status httpd. Command dmesg also shows httpd error. If it's started try to restart it few times with systemctl restart httpd. It will fail.

Actual Result:
Randomly failing Apache (httpd) service

Expected Result:
Working Apache (httpd) service, starte/stopped/restarted without any problems any time

Any Workarounds:
Using connector from older updates (Update 4 OK)
Connector version that comes with Update 5 has size (in linux) 1266464 bytes and causes problems with Apache (in my build).
Connector version that is recommended by Adobe if people want to use remote port to access ColdFusion Admin and is for Update 5 also (can be downloaded from has size 1266381 bytes also causes problems with Apache (in my build).
Connector version and comes with Update 4 has size 1259080 and works perfectly fine.
Checking the minor version (312584, 314600) of the connector ( 1.2.46) can be done by reading /etc/httpd/conf/mod_jk_global.log log file.
