Installing Web server plug-in maintenance

Use the Update Installer program to install maintenance packages for Web server plug-ins. Stop the Web server before installing the maintenance package to allow the Update Installer to update the configuration files in the Web server.

 

Before you begin

Before installing a maintenance package for a Web server plug-in, first install the Web server plug-in from the WebSphere Application Server installation image. See Installing Web server plug-ins for more information.

 

About this task

This topic describes installing a maintenance package for a Web server plug-in for WebSphere Application Server. WebSphere Application Server products supply a unique binary plug-in module for each supported Web server, which might require service updates that are included in a maintenance package. The plug-in configuration file that the WAS products supply is associated with the binary module and might also require maintenance. The Update Installer wizard installs any maintenance packages that you download from the Support site.

 

Procedure

  1. Go to the Recommended Updates for WebSphere Application Server Web page to determine which maintenance packages are available for the Web server plug-ins.

    Install maintenance packages for Web server plug-ins in this order:

    1. Refresh packs

    2. Fix packs

    3. Interim fixes

    For example, click the Refresh Pack 2 link (V6.0.2) for Windows to go to the WebSphere Application Server V6.0 Refresh Pack 2 for Windows platforms download page.

  2. Download the appropriate maintenance packages to a temporary location.

    For example, click the ftp link for the download package labeled, Intel Plug-ins, to download the maintenance package.

  3. Follow the directions for using the Update Installer wizard to install the maintenance packages.

    See Installing maintenance packages for more information.

    Verify that you stop the Web server process before installing a maintenance package for the Web server plug-ins.

 

Results

You can install a maintenance package for a Web server plug-in by following the procedures described in this topic.

 

What to do next

After installing maintenance packages, test the applications that the Web server provides to verify that the Web server is functioning correctly.
