So I have never done this before, and I figured for everyones benefit I would document the process from my end. I am faced with updating Coldfusion 9 to 9.0.1 for our production server. This server is running JBoss with CF9 running inside of it (J2EE WAR file).
Here is the process I took:
Downloaded the file from Adobe, chmod it to execute, then run the bin file (./):
wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/coldfusion/updates/901/ColdFusion_update_901_WWEJ_linux.bin chmod 777 ColdFusion_update_901_WWEJ_linux.bin ./ColdFusion_update_901_WWEJ_linux.bin
After that, the update self extracts (into /tmp) and goes on its merry way and has you click (multiple times)
DO YOU ACCEPT THE TERMS OF THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT? (Y/N): Y
folowing that, you simply select your configuration (mine is J2EE as mentioned):
Please select the ColdFusion 9 installation configuration that you want to update. 1- Server configuration 2- Multiserver configuration 3- J2EE configuration ENTER THE NUMBER OF THE DESIRED CHOICE: 3
and of course as you have guessed it, that is followed by:
Provide the ColdFusion 9 EAR or WAR file that is to be updated. EAR/WAR File: (DEFAULT: ): /my/dir/cfusion.war
and a confirmation of ALL that:

Finally the installation is completed! Enjoy… not too difficult after all.
