Hi ,
I had installed IBM Http server (with Websphere 4.0) on One machin called A.
Now when i am installing Websphere V 4.0 on machine B it is asking me the path of the conf directory. so upto which directory i should give that path???
Like when providing at the time of asking oracle installtion directory it is adding jdbc/lib to the websphere configuration file for the purpose of Oracle driver.
So what to provide exactly at the time of installation. and what Websphere does at that time and how it communicates with the HttpServer when request comes to Http Server.
At the time of installtion it is adding this entries in conf\httpd.conf file :
LoadModule ibm_app_server_http_module D:/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/mod_ibm_app_server_http.dll
Alias /IBMWebAS/ "D:/WebSphere/AppServer/web/"
Alias /WSsamples "D:/WebSphere/AppServer/WSsamples/"
WebSpherePluginConfig D:\WebSphere\AppServer\config\plugin-cfg.xml
And the D: drive here is of Websphere application server. and httpd.conf in on HTTp Server which in A.
So how A knows abt d: on B???
If you can provide any help or any docs on IBM, than that would be helpful to me.
Thanking you

I had solved the problem. I had change that d: in httpd.conf file of IBM Http Server to the new network drive created by me to Machine B (Websphere). and it is working fine now.
