WebSphere Application Server supplies a binary plug-in module for each supported Web server. The Plug-ins installation wizard installs required files and configures the Web server and the application server to allow communication between the servers.

 

Before you begin

You must install a supported Web server before installing a plug-in for the Web server. If the Web server is not already installed, one cannot install the plug-in for it. If the WAS product is not installed, one can still install the plug-in.

The Plug-ins installation wizard installs the plug-in module, configures the Web server for communicating with the application server, and creates a Web server configuration definition in the application server, if possible.

Some topologies, such as the Web server on one machine and the application server on another machine, prevent the Plug-ins installation wizard from creating the Web server definition in the application server configuration on the remote machine. In such a case, the Plug-ins installation wizard creates a script that you can copy to the application server machine. Run the script to create the Web server configuration definition within the application server configuration.

 

Overview

Select one of the following topology scenarios and follow the steps below the diagram to install the plug-in and configure both the Web server and the application server.
