If you already have Web Server software installed, and if you can identify a Web Server instance to serve as the load balancer, note the location of this instance in the file system and skip to Installing the Load Balancer Plug-in.
If you are using Sun Java Enterprise System software, the Web Server is selected for installation automatically when you choose to install the Load Balancer Plug-in. However, you can also install Web Server software using these steps:
Launch the Java Enterprise System installer.
Select the Sun Java System Web Server component in the Component Selection page.
Choose “Configure Now” to be prompted for Web Server Configuration during installation.
When you are prompted, define a default Web Server instance.
Remember the port number you choose for this default Web Server instance. This guide assumes that port 38000 is selected as the HTTP port for default instance.
If you are using a stand-alone Application Server, or if you do not have access to the Sun Java Enterprise System installer, install Web Server software using these steps:
Go to http://www.sun.com/downloads. Scroll down to the Web & Proxy Servers heading and click Web Servers.
Download Web Server 6.1 Service Pack 2 or higher for the locale and platform of your choice.
To download, you must log in with username and password registered with MySunSM, Sun StoreSM, SunSolveSM, or the Online Support Center. If you do not have a login account, you can register online.
Follow the instructions to install Web Server software. You must:
Extract the software from the compressed archive.
Run the setup program. If you need additional information, see the Web Server installation instructions at http://docs.sun.com.
The Web Server installation process configures the Administration Server for Web Server and prompts you to define a default Web Server instance.
Remember the port number you choose for this default web server instance. This guide assumes that port 38000 is selected as the HTTP port for default instance.
