Hi,
Can anyone see a problem with the following configuration:
Apache Webserver running on Solaris
Websphere 4.0 running on Win2k
Is there a websphere plugin for the Apache webserver? If so is it any different to the plugin for the IBM Http Server that is based on Apache? Can the same plugin be used for both?
Cheers,
Steve

Yes, there is a plugin available for Apache (we support it) on Solaris. However, you'll have to buy a copy of WebSphere on Solaris to install it...

I installed Apache Server and Websphere on 2k. After it was installed the web server and the app server communication did not work. Then, I found that including the path ProgramFiles\IBM\gsk5\bin and ProgramFiles\IBM\gsk5\lib in the classpath fixed the problem. You might want to try the same.

Hi,
I've tested a custom installation with both Apache and Websphere4.0 on WinNT and found that the following lines are added to the Apache files:
httpd.conf:
LoadModule app_server_http_module d:/WebSphere/AppServer/bin/mod_app_server_http.dll
srm.conf:
Alias /IBMWebAS/ "d:/WebSphere/AppServer/web/"
Alias /WSsamples "d:/WebSphere/AppServer/WSsamples/"
WebSpherePluginConfig d:\WebSphere\AppServer\config\plugin-cfg.xml
Now if I install Websphere on one of our Solaris boxes and point it at the already installed Apache it should modify the same files. If I then copy the text it has added into the relevant files for the other Apaches running on different Solaris machines along with the the required module for the plugin should this work?
I guess what I'm asking is:
Does Apache only require these minor changes to the conf files, a copy of the mod_app_server_http module, and a copy of the websphere plug-in xml file to work with Websphere or are there more fundamental changes to the Apache?
Since the aliases declared merely point Apache at a different directory to serve files from then are they really required?
Cheers,
Steve
