Install 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 installing a maintenance package for a Web server plug-in, first install the Web server plug-in from the WAS installation image. See Install Web server plug-ins for more information.

This page describes installing a maintenance package for a Web server plug-in for WAS. WAS 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 WAS v7s 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.

 

  1. Go to the Recommended Updates for WAS 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

  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.

    Read the "Installing maintenance packages" topic for more information.

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