Editing the Web Server Extension Configuration File (eapps.cfg)

The eappweb installer installs a single configuration file, eapps.cfg, for all the Siebel eBusiness Applications by default into the /BIN subdirectory of the installation on your Web server host.

The eapps.cfg file contains configuration information that you entered during the configuration of the Siebel Web Server Extension, including identity and connectivity information for the Application Object Managers, and login and security settings.

You may, if desired, add selected optional parameters manually to affect the selected Siebel Web Client applications as a whole. You may also override the added parameters to determine the performance of one or more applications.

For detailed information about the structure and parameters of the eapps.cfg file, see Structure of the eapps.cfg File.

NOTE:  If you make any changes to the eapps.cfg file, you must restart your World Wide Web Publishing Service.

To edit the eapps.cfg file

  1. Double-click the file to launch your default text editor. You can use any standard text editor, such as Windows Notepad.
  2. If you modify the configuration file, save it and restart the Web server.
  3. You must also restart several Windows services to make your changes take effect. See Services You Must Restart.

If your enterprise uses eChannel, eSales, or eService, you will need to configure LDAP for a secure connection. For more information, see Security Guide for Siebel eBusiness Applications.
