31.9 Tuning Oracle HTTP Server Webgates for Access Manager

After installing the Access Manager Web component for Oracle HTTP Server, you need to complete the steps that follow.

As mentioned earlier, before installing Webgates for Oracle HTTP Server, in the httpd.conf file you must change the user and group to match the user that is installing the component.


On Linux, Webgates for Oracle HTTP Server 11g use only NPTL; you cannot use the LinuxThreads library. In this case, do not set the environment variable LD_ASSUME_KERNEL to 2.4.19.

To tune Oracle HTTP Server for Webgates

  1. Shut down opmn, as you usually do.
  2. Locate and open the opmn.xml file for editing. For example:


  3. In the opmn.xml file, adjust items as follows:
    <ias-component id="HTTP_Server">
    <process-type id="HTTP_Server" module-id="OHS2">
                    <variable id="TMP" value="/tmp"/>
                    <variable id="LD_ASSUME_KERNEL" value="2.4.19"/>
                <category id="start-parameters">
                  <data id="start-mode" value="ssl-disabled"/>
              <process-set id="HTTP_Server" numprocs="1"/>
  4. Refresh the OPMN configuration by executing the following script:
    #ORACLE_HOME/opmn/bin/opmnctl reload
  5. Start the Oracle HTTP Server Web server, as described in "Starting and Stopping Oracle HTTP Server Web Servers"
