Issue/Introduction

Description:

As per the Platform Support Matrix, IBM HTTP Server 7.0 is supported with WebAgent 6QMR5-CR31 onwards on AIX 6.1 but WebAgent doesn't configure the IBM HTTP Server properly during WebAgent configuration.

WebAgent configuration installer detects the web server as Apache 2.0 whereas IBM HTTP Server 7.0 contains Apache 2.2.x.

It configures Apache 2.0 library in the Httpd.conf file. You have to manually modify the Httpd.conf to point to the 2.2 libraries and then IBM HTTP Server works fine with WebAgent.

NOTE: - When running WebAgent configuration wizard => Select Web server(s) only the following option is shown -
Select Web Server(s)
-----------------------------
1- [] IBM HTTP Server 2.0
-----------------------------

It doesn't show IBM HTTP Server 2.2.

This Issue exists with both 64 bit and 32 bit IBM HTTP web server 7.0.

Solution:

For Solaris, Linux and HP-UX Itanium platforms LD_LIBRARY_PATH needs to be set before running the Web Agent Configuration Wizard, like this:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=home_directory_of_your_IHS_7.0_server/lib

For AIX, LIBPATH needs to be set before running the Web Agent Configuration Wizard, like this:
LIBPATH=home_directory_of_your_IHS_7.0_server/lib

For HP-UX PA RISC platform, SHLIB_PATH needs to be set before running the Web Agent Configuration Wizard, like this:
SHLIB_PATH=home_directory_of_your_IHS_7.0_server/lib
