Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Planning Guide

Choosing Configuration Values for Web Server

For each Web Server instance in your solution, you must input values that configure the instance to interoperate with the other components in the solution. Use Table 3–15 to help you choose configuration values.

Table 3–15 Key Configuration Values for Web Server

Input Field 

Choosing a Value for Your Solution 

Administrator User ID and Administrator Password 

Use these fields to establish an administrator account for the Web Server instance. 

Web Server Host 

The fully qualified domain name of the computer on which Web Server is installed. This value is used as the name of the Web Server instance created by installation. 

Administration Port and Administration Runtime User ID 

The port on which Web Server's administration server listens for connections. Web Server's administration server process runs under the Runtime User ID. 

Runtime User ID and Runtime Group 

The User ID and group under which the Web Server instance runs.  

When Web Server is installed as a container for Access Manager or Portal Server, set these values to root and other. 

When Web Server is installed as a container for other components, use a non-root user. 

HTTP Port 

The port on which Web Server listens for connections. 

Document Root Directory 

The directory where deployed documents are stored.  

You cannot switch from the default directory to another directory unless the alternate directory already exists. The installer will not create the alternate directory for you. 

Automatically Start Web Server When System Restarts 

Selecting this item configures Web Server to restart automatically when the computer restarts. Note, however, that this 

value is ignored when Web Server runs as a container for Access Manager. The Access Manager startup script takes precedence and automatically restarts Web Server when the computer restarts.
