How to couple Apache 2 and Websphere 6.1

Hi All,

I am trying to integrate Apache (2.0.63) web server with WebSphere application server( [note that my app server is the one which is bundled in RAD 7].

1] I executed WebSphere plugin setup. It modified httpd.conf file adding below entries,

2] It also created plugin-cfg.xml file as follows,

3] My plug-in setup concluded without any errors. After setup finsihed, I copied configureApache2.bat from profile root directory to websphere root directory. And then I executed the script.

4] Finally I started both servers, but when I hit URL Apache is unable to identify it. I dont know what am I missing. I observer that in plugin-cfg.xml there is no URL mapping, so am I supposed to enter it manually?

Here is the document that I followed: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v6r1/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.websphere.base.doc/info/aes/ae/tins_road_plugins.html [Local Installation Scenario]

Please help me in making this work!

You need to distribute the applications to your web server, this is done at deployment time or configurig the application changing its target, then you regenerate the plugin-cfg.xml file and propagate it to your web server
