Configure custom HTTP servers

After creating a middleware server representation of a custom HTTP server in the administrative console, you must update a few configuration settings so that they are defined specifically for the custom HTTP server installation.

Federate the node running the custom HTTP server and create a representation of the server in the administrative console.

To perform server operations on the server from the administrative console, configure the server operations for the custom HTTP server middleware server representation.

Configure server operations for the custom HTTP server to include the user name and password.

  1. In the administrative console, click Servers > Server types > Custom HTTP servers > custom_http_server > Server operations.

  2. Edit the start and stop server operations.

  3. Define the location of the process ID (PID) file on the server. Create the PID file name environment variable. The PID file name specifies the location of the PID file where the server operation runs. To define the PID file name variable, click Servers > All servers > custom_http_server > Variables > New or Environment > WebSphere variables > New. Enter the same name for the variable that you entered in the server operations panel, and for the value, enter the fully qualified or variable qualified location of the PID file.
