I installed and started an java ear appilcation through the v6 admin console. It runs ok on http://localhost:9080/AppName, however the webserver is not aware of it. so if I run http://localhost/AppName it won't work. I already installed and configured the webserver plugin for ibm http server which is what's running. I regenerated plugin automatically through the admin console. rest of the sample ear applications(eg.PlantsByWebsphere) runs fine through the webserver. what's wrong? how would I go about identifying the problem? thanks!
Keep in mind that whether your specify a port or not, by the rules of the internet, one is being use. So when you don't specify a port such as http://localhost/AppName the default of 80 is used.
In order to get your server to work as you want you need to go into the admin console and reconfigure the server to use port 80 instead of 9080, or if you are coupling websphere with IIS or Apache, have it forward to the websphere port.
