Keep in mind the following:
This chapter is for WebSphere 8.0 and 8.5. If you are installing on WebSphere 7.0, see Chapter 10, "Installing IBM HTTP Server 7.0."
In this chapter, IBM HTTP Server is referred to as "IHS." WebSphere Application Server is referred to as "WAS."
To install the IBM HTTP Server, complete the following steps:
There installation instructions assume you have installed IBM Installation Manager (IIM). If you do not have IIM installed, you must do so.
Download the IBM HTTP Server installer files from the IBM website and extract the contents to a folder of your choice. Refer to the Oracle WebCenter Sites Certification Matrix for supported versions with WebCenter Sites here:
In the IIM, select File, then select Preferences, then select Add Repository to configure an IBM HTTP Server repository.
Test the connection to the new repository.
Check for the latest available versions by clicking the Check for other Versions, Fixes and Extensions button.
From the list of available Install Package items, select IBM HTTP Server for WebSphere Application Server, Web Server Plug-ins for IBM WebSphere Application Server, and WebSphere Customization Toolbox. See Figure 9-1 for details:
