2 Installing the Oracle HTTP Server Software

This chapter describes how to install the Oracle HTTP Server software.

It contains the following sections:

2.1 Starting the Installation Program

To start the installation program, perform the following steps.

  1. Log in to the target system.

  2. Go to the directory in which you downloaded the installation program.

  3. Launch the installation program by entering the following command:

    • On Linux:

      ./ohs_121200_linux64.bin

    • On Windows:

      ohs_121200_win64.exe

      You can also start the installer by double-clicking the ohs_121200_win64.exe file.

    When the installation program appears, you are ready to begin the installation.

    For a description of each installation program screen, see Section 2.2.

2.2 Navigating the Installation Screens

Table 2-1 lists the screens in the order that the installation program displays.

If you need additional help with any of the installation screens, click the screen name.

Note:

Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure screens are used as sample screens and all screens are exactly the same with the exception of the Installation Type screen.

Table 2-1 Oracle HTTP Server Install Screens

Screen Description

Welcome

This screen introduces you to the product installer.

Installation Location

Use this screen to specify the location of your Oracle home directory.

  • If you are installing using the standard installation topology for Oracle HTTP Server in a WebLogic Server domain, then you must enter the path to an existing Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure Oracle home.

  • If you are installing using the standard installation topology for Oracle HTTP Server in a standalone domain, you can specify an Oracle home directory of your choice. However, ensure that you install the software in a new Oracle home.

For more information about Oracle Fusion Middleware directory structure, see "Selecting Directories for Installation and Configuration" in Planning an Installation of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

Installation Type

Use this screen to select the type of installation and consequently, the products and feature sets you want to install.

  • Select Standalone HTTP Server (Managed independently of WebLogic server) if you are installing Oracle HTTP Server in a Standalone domain.

  • Select Colocated HTTP Server (Managed through WebLogic server) if you are installing Oracle HTTP Server in a WebLogic Server domain.

Prerequisite Checks

This screen verifies that your system meets the minimum necessary requirements.

If there are any warning or error messages, you can refer to one of the documents in Section 1.6.

Specify Security Updates

If you already have an Oracle Support account, use this screen to indicate how you would like to receive security updates.

If you do not have one and are sure you want to skip this step, clear the check box and verify your selection in the follow-up dialog box.

Installation Summary

Use this screen to verify the installation options you selected. If you want to save these options to a response file, click Save Response File and provide the location and name of the response file. Response files can be used later in a silent installation situation.

For more information about silent or command line installation, see "Using the Oracle Universal Installer in Silent Mode" in Installing Software with the Oracle Universal Installer.

Installation Progress

This screen allows you to see the progress of the installation.

Installation Complete

This screen appears when the installation is complete. Review the information on this screen, then click Finish to dismiss the installer.
