A Configuration Files

This appendix lists commonly used Oracle HTTP Server configuration files.

Files discussed are:

A.1 dms.conf

Enables you to monitor performance of site components with Oracle's Dynamic Monitoring Service (DMS).

It is located at:

A.2 httpd.conf

This is a server configuration file which typically contains directives that affect how the server runs, such as user and group IDs it should use, and location of other files. Because the server configuration file is the main file that the server starts with, Oracle HTTP Server does not include any directive that says where to locate it. The location is passed on command line when the server starts.

It is located at:

You should use only this file, and not srm.conf or access.conf because it is much easier to manage a single configuration file.

A.2.1 httpd.conf File Structure

httpd.conf is arranged in the following sections:

A.2.1.1 Global Environment

This is section one of the httpd.conf file. It contains configuration directives dealing with Oracle HTTP Server.

A.2.1.2 Main Server Configuration

This is section two of the httpd.conf file. It contains the directives of the default server.

A.2.1.3 Virtual Hosts Parameters

This is section three of the httpd.conf file. It contains parameters specific to virtual hosts, which override some of the main server configuration defaults.

A.3 mime.types

Controls the Multi Internet media types that are sent to the client for the given file extensions. Sending the correct media type to the client is important so that the client knows how to handle the content of the file. You can add extra types in the mime type file or add an AddType directive in the configuration file.

A.4 opmn.xml

It contains information for the ONS, the PM, and Oracle Database component-specific configuration. opmn.xml shows you which Oracle Database components OPMN is managing on your system. It contains Oracle Database component entries arranged in the following hierarchical structure:
