Manually editing the plug-in configuration

Regenerating the plug-in configuration file does not guarantee a correct configuration for advanced configuration scenarios. If your use of the WAS product requires a plug-in configuration more advanced than what is provided with the default plug-in configuration, or if the plug-in does not behave as properly after the configuration file is regenerated, you can manually edit the configuration file to obtain the proper plug-in behavior for your environment.

  1. Find the plug-in configuration files. By default, the working or active versions of the plugin-cfg.xml file reside in the directory $WAS_HOME/config/cells.

  2. Manually edit the plug-in configuration files.A plugin-cfg.xml file is created using either the Update Web Server Plug-in Configuration page in the Application Server administrative console, or by running the script. If the file is created in a distributed platform environment, it will be in ASCII format, which is the required format for a distributed platform Web server plug-in.

    To edit a plugin-cfg.xml file, open the file in a text editor, change the plug-in settings as needed, and save the file.

    CAUTION: If the plug-in configuration is regenerated, your manual edits to the plug-in configuration file will be overwritten. Therefore, maintain a record of any manual changes you make for future reference.
