CF 9.0.1 updates folder contains chf9010001.jar and hf901-00010.jar

I just inherited a CF 9.0.1 server running on Windows Server 2003.


One of the applications is getting a HTTP 500 error when a page with a lot of form fields is being submitted, so I wanted to install HotFix APSB12-06 which allows to enter a number for the postParameters Limit variable which I'm hoping will resolve this issue.


When I went to check to see what updates were installed on the server, I see these 2 files there.  I beleive hf901-00010.jar is for a CF Admin security issue.


Would this patch have allow me to add the postParametersLimit to the neo-runtime.xml file or do I still need to install the above patch?

Also, how is it possible that there are 2 jar files in the updates folder?  I thought only 1 jar file is supposed to be there?  The tech notes on htofix installs always mention to remove the previous jar files.


Or should I just install cumulative hotfix 4 for CF 9.0.1?


I'd like to do this update in about 5 hours from now, so if I can get any quuick responses that would be greatly appreciated.

    It's cumulative. So, you just need to install the latest hotfix for CF 9.0.1.

    Please follow the update instructions carefully; and perform backups.

    I expect after you apply CF9.0.1 CHF4 you will need to re-apply the file changes (eg CFIDE\admin*) that are part of APSB13-13. Be sure to remove the CHF1 JAR file from CF9\lib\updates.

    Note there is also a APSB13-19 which has a CF Jrun patch.
