Edit web server configuration files

Edit web server configuration files to configure a Web server.

(dist) The Web Server Plug-ins Configuration Tool configures supported web servers. Use this topic to understand how the tool configures the web server configuration files.

(dist) To change a configuration, we can run the Web Server Plug-ins Configuration Tool again to re-configure the web server or we can edit the files.

There are some web server configuration settings that cannot be edited:

gotcha

(dist) To support a nondefault profile, edit the configuration to point the web server to the correct location of the plug-in configuration file (plugin-cfg.xml). In this case, you would change the profile path from the default profile to the secondary profile.

(iseries) Use the IBM Web Administration for IBM i to configure IBM i web servers to communicate with a WAS. Doing so automatically updates the web server configuration files as needed.

(iseries) To change a configuration, we can use the IBM Web Administration for IBM i to re-configure the web server, or we can edit the files. IBM recommends using the IBM Web Administration for IBM i to configure the web server configuration file. However, sometimes you must edit the files.

We must determine whether the web server application uses a 32-bit or 64-bit architecture. If the machine supports a 64-bit architecture, we can use either a 32-bit or a 64-bit web server application. The following examples show how to determine which the architecture for the web server application:

If the web server application uses a 64-bit architecture, the plug-in library should be loaded from the plugin_root/bin/64bit directory. If the web server application uses a 32-bit architecture, the plug-in library should be loaded from the plugin_root/bin/32bits directory. If the plugin_root/bin/64bits directory does not exist, use the 32-bit architecture.

Results

(dist) We can use the Web Server Plug-ins Configuration Tool to configure supported web servers. We can also configure a web servers by editing its configuration.

(iseries) We can use the IBM Web Administration for IBM i to configure IBM i Web servers. We can also configure a web servers by editing its configuration.
