Configuring Oracle iPlanet Web Server to Accept the SWSE
For the Oracle iPlanet Web Server running on Oracle Solaris, you must configure the Web server to accept the changes that the SWSE Configuration Wizard makes to the Web server configuration files when you configure the SWSE. Otherwise, changes that you might make in the future to the Web server configuration will overwrite the changes made by the Configuration Wizard.
This topic is part of Additional Tasks for the Siebel Web Server Extension and the Web Server.
To make sure that Oracle iPlanet Web Server accepts changes made by SWSE
- Navigate to the Oracle iPlanet Web Server Administration page. (For instructions, see the Oracle iPlanet Web Server documentation.)
- Click the button that shows the server instance on which the SWSE was installed.
The Server Preferences page for the instance appears.
- On the upper-right side of the Server Preferences page, click Apply.
Another page with a warning message appears:
WARNING: The configuration files have been edited by hand. Use this button to load the latest configuration files.
- Click Load Configuration Files. The following message appears:
Success! The most recent config files have been loaded.
This message indicates that the Oracle iPlanet Web Server has accepted the changes made to it by the SWSE Configuration Wizard.
Oracle iPlanet Web Server References to the eapps.cfg File
When you configure the Siebel Web Server Extension, the SWSE Configuration Wizard adds a reference to the Oracle iPlanet Web Server configuration file magnus.conf. This file specifies global settings of the Web server, such as server information, object file configuration, DNS lookup, ACL, and so on.
A typical line the SWSE Configuration Wizard would add to magnus.conf might resemble the following example:
Init fn="swe-init" config-file="
In this entry, SWSE_ROOT is the root directory where the SWSE is installed.
To locate magnus.conf
- Navigate to the following path:
In this path, Oracle_iPlanet_Web_Server_install is the root directory of the Oracle iPlanet Web Server.
