Quick Installation Guide for Oracle Web Tier

11g Release 1 (11.1.1)

E14317-05

March 2011

This document describes how to install and configure Oracle Web Tier on a single host. All of the products in the Web Tier Utilities Suite will be installed and configured:

The following topics are covered:

1 Installation Overview

The Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Web Tier can be installed and configured in one of the following ways:

This guide contains instructions for installing and configuring Oracle Web Tier on a single host in stand-alone mode (the components will not be associated with a WebLogic domain). Figure 1 illustrates the topology that will be created on your system at the conclusion of this procedure. It also describes the order in which you need to perform certain tasks:

Figure 1 Oracle WebTier Stand-Alone Installation Topology and Order of Tasks

Description of Figure 1 follows
Description of "Figure 1 Oracle WebTier Stand-Alone Installation Topology and Order of Tasks"

Note that although Oracle WebLogic Server is not required in order to complete an Oracle Web Tier installation, the directory structure for the Middleware home must still be present. This is to make the directory structure for Oracle Web Tier consistent with other Oracle Fusion Middleware products, all of which require the existence of WebLogic Server and its corresponding directory structure.

In the case of an Oracle Web Tier installation in stand-alone mode, the directory structure will still be created despite the absence of Oracle WebLogic Server.

2 Planning Your Installation

This section contains important information you should read prior to installing Oracle Web Tier. The following topics are covered:

2.1 Verifying Your System Environment

This section contains information to help you verify that your system environment meets the minimum requirements for installation:

2.1.1 Verifying System Requirements, Certification, Interoperability and Compatibility

Review the following documentation before you begin the installation:

2.1.2 Installing 32-bit Oracle Web Tier on a 64-bit Operating System

If you are installing the 32-bit version of the product on a Windows operating system, the system on which you are installing must also be a supported 32-bit system. Installing a 32-bit version of the product on a 64-bit system is not supported.

A 32-bit Linux version of Oracle Web Tier may be installed on most 64-bit Linux platforms. To see which platforms are supported, refer to the System Requirements and Supported Platforms for Oracle Fusion Middleware 11gR1 document, available on the Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported System Configurations page:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/fusion-certification-100350.html

To install your 32-bit Oracle Web Tier software on a certified 64-bit Linux system, do the following:

  1. Run the following command before starting the installer:

    linux32 bash
    
  2. During the installation, you will receive an error during the linking phase. To work around this error:

    1. Login as root user.

    2. Move the existing /usr/bin/gcc file to /usr/bin/gcc.orig with the mv command:

      mv /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/gcc.orig
      
    3. Using a text editor such as vi, create a new file called gcc41 that contains the following content:

      #!/bin/sh
      exec /usr/bin/gcc.orig  -m32 -static-libgcc
      -B /usr/lib/gcc/i586-suse-linux/2.95.3/ $*
      

      Note:

      The file i586-suse-linux/2.95.3 may differ slightly depending on the exact version of your Linux operating system. Verify the exact version of your Linux operating system in use; search for the 32bit directory in /usr/lib/gcc and obtain the exact file name.
    4. Change the file permission for the gcc41 file using the following command:

      chmod 755 /usr/bin/gcc41
      
    5. Create a symbolic link to /usr/bin/gcc with the following command:

      ln -s -f /usr/bin/gcc41 /usr/bin/gcc
      

2.1.3 Oracle Fusion Middleware Support of 64-bit JDK

If you are using a 64-bit JVM in your environment, ensure that all your Oracle Fusion Middleware components are using the 64-bit JVM. You cannot mix components using a 32-bit JVM with those using a 64-bit JVM.

For more information, refer to the System Requirements and Supported Platforms for Oracle Fusion Middleware 11gR1 document, available on the Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported System Configurations page:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/fusion-certification-100350.html

If your Oracle Fusion Middleware components are running in a 64-bit JVM environment, ensure that WebLogic Server is installed with the 64-bit JDK. For 32-bit JVM support, refer to Oracle Fusion Middleware Release Notes for Microsoft Windows or Oracle Fusion Middleware Release Notes for Linux x86 for information on how to configure your environment for 32-bit JVM support for your platform.

2.2 Installing on a DHCP Host

If you are installing Oracle Web Tier on a DHCP host, you must follow the configuration steps in this section for your platform.

2.2.1 For Linux x86 Platforms

On Linux operating systems, configure the host to resolve hostnames to the loopback IP address by modifying the /etc/hosts file to contain the following entries:

127.0.0.1 hostname.domainname hostname
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost

After doing so, check that the hostname resolves to the loopback IP address by entering the following command:

/bin/ping hostname.domainname

2.2.2 For Windows x86 Platforms

On Windows operating systems, install a loopback adapter on the DHCP server (see Section 2.2.3, "Installing a Loopback Adapter (Windows Only)"). This assigns a local IP address to your computer.

After installing the adapter, add a line to the %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file with the following format, immediately after the localhost line:

IP_address   hostname.domainname   hostname

Replace IP_address with the local IP address of the loopback adapter.

2.2.3 Installing a Loopback Adapter (Windows Only)

To install a loopback adapter on Windows 2003 or Windows XP:

  1. Open the Windows Control Panel.

    Windows 2003: Select Start > Control Panel > Add Hardware.

    Windows XP: Select Start > Control Panel, then double-click Add Hardware.

  2. In the "Add Hardware Wizard" window, click Next.

  3. In the "Is the hardware connected?" window, select Yes, I have already connected the hardware, then click Next.

  4. In the "The following hardware is already installed on your computer" window, in the list of installed hardware, select Add a new hardware device, then click Next.

  5. In the "The wizard can help you install other hardware" window, select Install the hardware that I manually select from a list, then click Next.

  6. In the "From the list of hardware types, select the type of hardware you are installing" window, select Network adapters, then click Next.

  7. In the "Select Network Adapter" window, make the following selections:

    • Manufacturer: Microsoft

    • Network Adapter: Microsoft Loopback Adapter

  8. Click Next.

  9. In the "The wizard is ready to install your hardware" window, click Next.

  10. In the "Completing the Add Hardware Wizard" window, click Finish.

  11. If you are using Windows 2003, restart your computer.

  12. Right-click My Network Places on the desktop and choose Properties. This displays the Network Connections Control Panel.

  13. Right-click the connection that was just created. This is usually named "Local Area Connection 2". Choose Properties.

  14. On the "General" tab, select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), then click Properties.

  15. In the "Properties" dialog box, click Use the following IP address and do the following:

    1. IP Address: Enter a non-routable IP for the loopback adapter. Oracle recommends the following non-routable addresses:

      192.168.x.x (x is any value between 1 and 255)
      10.10.10.10
      
    2. Subnet mask: Enter 255.255.255.0.

    3. Record the values you entered, which you will need later in this procedure.

    4. Leave all other fields empty.

    5. Click OK.

  16. In the "Local Area Connection 2 Properties" dialog, click OK.

  17. Close Network Connections.

  18. Restart the computer.

2.2.4 Removing a Loopback Adapter (Windows Only)

To remove a loopback adapter on Windows 2003 or Windows XP:

  1. Start the System Control panel.

    Windows 2003: Select Start > Control Panel > System.

    Windows XP: Select Start > Control Panel, then double-click System.

  2. In the "Hardware" tab, click Device Manager.

  3. In the "Device Manager" window, expand Network adapters. You should see Microsoft Loopback Adapter.

  4. Right-click Microsoft Loopback Adapter and select Uninstall.

  5. Click OK.

2.3 Installing on a Non-Networked Computer

You can install Oracle Web Tier on a non-networked computer, such as a laptop. Because a non-networked computer has no access to other computers, you have to install all the components that you need on the computer.

In addition, you must follow the instructions in Section 2.2, "Installing on a DHCP Host" to install a loopback adapter and modify the hosts file on your system.

2.4 Installing on a Multihomed Computer

You can install Oracle Web Tier on a multihomed computer. A multihomed computer is associated with multiple IP addresses. This is typically achieved by having multiple network cards on the computer. Each IP address is associated with a hostname; additionally, you can set up aliases for each hostname.

The installer picks up the fully qualified domain name from the first entry in /etc/hosts (on UNIX operating systems) or %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts (on Windows operating systems) file. So if your file looks like the following:

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
10.222.333.444 examplehost1.example.com examplehost1
20.222.333.444 examplehost2.example.com examplehost2

examplehost1.example.com would be picked for configuration.

For specific network configuration of a system component, refer to the individual component's configuration documentation.

3 Installation Types

The Oracle Web Tier installer will present you with two types of installation:

The Install and Configure option will install the product binaries in an Oracle home directory and create and configure your system components in an Oracle Instance directory. Common product binaries will also be copied to the oracle_common directory. After this is complete, you should be able to access your products using the Administration Console or Enterprise Manager to begin configuring and managing your products.

The Install Software - Do Not Configure option only installs the software binaries in an Oracle home directory and also copies the common product binaries to the oracle_common directory. You must then manually run the Configuration Tool from the bin directory inside your Web Tier Oracle home to configure your products before you can use them. This option can be used to quickly create multiple instances of the software that share a common disk.

For more information about Oracle home and Oracle instance directories, refer to "Oracle Fusion Middleware Directory Structure" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide.

7 Verifying the Installation

You can perform any combination of the following tasks to verify that your installation was successful:

7.1 Verifying the Installation Logs

Check for the presence of installation log files in logs directory inside your Oracle Inventory directory. On UNIX operating systems, if you do not know the location of your Oracle Inventory directory, you can find it in the ORACLE_HOME/oraInst.loc file. On Windows operating systems, the default location for the inventory directory is C:\Program Files\Oracle\Inventory\logs.

7.2 Verifying OPMN Status

Run the opmnctl status command from the bin directory in your instance home location. For example, on a UNIX operating system:

> cd $INSTANCE_HOME/bin
> ./opmnctl status

Processes in Instance: instance2
---------------------------------+--------------------+---------+---------
ias-component                    | process-type       |     pid | status  
---------------------------------+--------------------+---------+---------
webcache1                        | WebCache-admin     |   24057 | Alive   
webcache1                        | WebCache           |   24056 | Alive   
ohs1                             | OHS                |   23890 | Alive   

This information shows the components configured for this installation. The status "Alive" means the component is up and running.

7.3 Checking Browser URLs

Run the opmnctl status -l command from the bin directory in your instance home location to obtain a list of ports used by the components. For example, on a UNIX operating system:

> cd $INSTANCE_HOME/bin
> ./opmnctl status -l

---------------------------------+--------------------+---------+----------+------------+----------+-----------+------
ias-component                    | process-type       |     pid | status   |        uid |  memused |    uptime | ports
---------------------------------+--------------------+---------+----------+------------+----------+-----------+------
webcache1                        | WebCache-admin     |   24057 | Alive    | 1067146469 |    43712 |  14:43:29 | http_admin:7799
webcache1                        | WebCache           |   24056 | Alive    | 1067146468 |    64072 |  14:43:29 | http_stat:7800,http_invalidation:7801,https_listen:7802,http_listen:7798
ohs1                             | OHS                |   23890 | Alive    | 1067146467 |    50260 |  14:43:39 | https:9999,https:4447,http:7777

Use the port numbers in this display to point your browser to the appropriate pages. Use the format:

http://system_name:port_number

9.1 Oracle Support Services

If you purchased Oracle Product Support, you can call Oracle Support Services for assistance. Oracle Support Services include phone assistance, version updates and access to our service offerings. You have access to phone support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In the U.S.A., you can call Product Support at 1-800-223-1711.

Make sure you have your CSI (CPU Support Identifier) number ready when you call. Keep the CSI number for your records, because it is your key to Oracle Support Services. The Oracle Store sends the CSI number to you in an e-mail alert when it processes your order. If you do not have your CSI number and you are in the U.S.A., you can look up your CSI number by accessing our online Order Tracker which provides detailed order information. Go to the Oracle Store and click on Order Tracker located above the top navigation bar.

10 Documentation Accessibility

Our goal is to make Oracle products, services, and supporting documentation accessible to all users, including users that are disabled. To that end, our documentation includes features that make information available to users of assistive technology. This documentation is available in HTML format, and contains markup to facilitate access by the disabled community. Accessibility standards will continue to evolve over time, and Oracle is actively engaged with other market-leading technology vendors to address technical obstacles so that our documentation can be accessible to all of our customers. For more information, visit the Oracle Accessibility Program Web site at http://www.oracle.com/accessibility/.
