Figure 30. IBM HTTP Server default Web page
We document here the steps to install WebSphere on the front end server,
configure various configuration files for WebSphere and IBM HTTP Server,
and verify that IBM HTTP Server will load and run Java servlets.
220.127.116.11 Installing WebSphere
WebSphere must be installed as the root user. It requires a JDK be installed
and a JAVA_HOME environment be set. It then requires 2 components to be
installed. These are the installation steps:
1. Export JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk118, since we had previously installed IBM
JDK 118 (see Section 2.4.3, IBM JDK 118 on page 32).
2. Install the WebSphere core, which has a file name of
IBMWebAS core 2.03 1.i386.rpm
3. We can now install the Web server specific component. Since we are
using IBM HTTP Server, we will use the file
IBMWebAS ibm http 2.03 1.i386.rpm.
