6 Installing the Software for an Enterprise Deployment

This chapter describes the software installations required for the Oracle WebCenter Content enterprise deployment reference topology. You install Oracle HTTP Server and then Oracle Fusion Middleware.

Note:

Before starting the setup process, read the Oracle Fusion Middleware Release Notes for your platform for additional installation and deployment information.

This chapter contains the following sections:

6.1 Overview of the Software Installation Process

The enterprise deployment software installation is divided into two parts. The first part covers the required web tier installations, while the second part addresses the required Oracle Fusion Middleware components. Later chapters describe the required configuration steps to create the Oracle WebCenter Content reference topology.

Obtaining the Software

For information about where to obtain the software, see "Obtain the Oracle Fusion Middleware Software" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide.

Select one of the download locations and download Oracle WebCenter Content and Oracle SOA Suite. The ZIP archive files are saved to your system.

After you download each archive file, extract it into a directory of your choice on the machine where you are performing the installation.

6.2 Installing Oracle HTTP Server

This section covers these topics:

6.2.1 Prerequisites to Installing Oracle HTTP Server

Prior to installing Oracle HTTP Server (OHS), check that your machines meet the following requirements:

  • Ensure that the system, patch, kernel, and other requirements are met as specified in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Web Tier.

  • Because Oracle HTTP Server is installed on port 7777 by default, you must make sure that port 7777 is not used by any service on the nodes. To check if this port is in use, run the following command before installing Oracle HTTP Server:

    netstat -an | grep 7777
    

    You must free port 7777 if it is in use.

  • On Linux platforms, if the /etc/oraInst.loc file exists, check that its contents are correct. Specifically, check that the inventory directory is correct and that you have write permissions for that directory. If the /etc/oraInst.loc file does not exist, you can skip this step.

  • Before starting the installation, make sure that the following environment variables are not set:

    • LD_ASSUME_KERNEL

    • ORACLE_INSTANCE

6.2.2 Installing Oracle HTTP Server on WEBHOST1 and WEBHOST2

As described in Chapter 4, "Preparing the File System for an Enterprise Deployment," you install Oracle Fusion Middleware in at least two storage locations for redundancy.

  1. Start the installer for Oracle HTTP Server from the installation media:

    ./runInstaller
    
  2. In the Specify Inventory Directory screen, do the following:

    1. Enter HOME/oraInventory, where HOME is the home directory of the user performing the installation (this is the recommended location).

    2. Enter the OS group for the user performing the installation.

    3. Click Next.

    Follow the instructions on the screen to execute createCentralInventory.sh as root.
