Another CacheManager



I am trying to install ContentBox on my ColdFusion 10 server. I am receiving the following error:

"Another CacheManager with same name '_ORM_ContentBox-Shell-3787620C02C4090F0A3468DBA355AA6F' already exists in the same VM. Please provide unique names for each CacheManager in the config or do one of following: 1. Use one of the CacheManager.create() static factory methods to reuse same CacheManager with same name or create one if necessary 2. Shutdown the earlier cacheManager before creating new one with same name. The source of the existing CacheManager is: URLConfigurationSource [url=jar:file:/C:/ColdFusion10/cfusion/lib/ehcache-core-2.5.1.jar!/ehcache-failsafe.xml] "

I think that this is happening because of how I attempted to install ContentBox.

1) I tried to install and did not follow instructions to the letter the first time.
a) I named my database and DNS "coldbox" then tried to install and failed.
b) I re-read and found that my database and DNS needed to be named contentbox so I created a new database and called it contentbox.
c) I re-installed using the contentbox for the database and DNS and got the above error.
2) I have had success installing this before, the very first time. Then I tried to install ContentBox again in a different folder in the same root and received an error similar to the above error.

I wonder if I can solve this problem by just changing the name of the original database and DNS?

This is a known ColdFusion 10 issue with ehcache. You must either:

  • Disabled secondary cache in the Application.cfc

  • Patch your ColdFusion 10 to latest patches
