Update the global web server plug-in configuration setting

Use this page to create or update a global plug-in configuration file. The configuration settings this file contains are based on the topology of the cell containing the applications servers that use this web server plug-in. The web server plug-in configuration file settings determine whether an application server or the web server handles user requests.

A global web server plug-in configuration file must be regenerated whenever:

The generated plugin-cfg.xml file is placed in the %was_profile_home%/config/cells directory. If the web server is located on a remote machine, you must manually move this file to that machine.

Avoid trouble: We can update the global plugin-cfg.xml file using the console or running the GenPluginCfg command for all of the clusters in a cell. However, you must delete the config/cells/plugin-cfg.xml file before you update the global plugin-cfg.xml file. If we do not delete the config/cells/plugin-cfg.xml file, only the new properties and their values are added to the global plugin-cfg.xml file. Any updates to existing plug-in property values are not added to the global plugin-cfg.xml file.gotcha To view this console page, click Environment > Update global web server plug-in configuration.

Click OK to update the global plugin-cfg.xml file.
