Configure IBM HTTP Server Versions 6.1 and 7.0

This section provides the procedure for configuring IBM HTTP Server (IHS) to work with PPM.

To configure IHS for PPM:

  1. Navigate to <PPM_Home>/integration/webserverplugins/ibmihs/aix/powerpc-32/, and then copy to the IHS module directory (usually <IHS_Home>/modules).

    Note: The Jakarta Tomcat Connector (mod_jk) is used to connect IHS and PPM. The Ajp13 protocol keeps an open socket and controls the communications between PPM (its built-in Tomcat component) and IHS.

  2. Instruct IHS to load the Jakarta Tomcat Connector (mod_jk). You can use the IHS LoadModule configuration directives in the httpd.conf file, which is located in <IHS_Home>/conf (where <IHS_Home> is the IHS installation directory).

  3. Navigate to the <PPM_Home>/integration/webserverplugins/configuration directory, and then copy the and to the IHS configuration directory (usually <IHS_Home>/conf).

  4. Configure the file. (For detailed information and instructions, see Configuring the Workers Properties File.)

  5. Configuring the file to specify mappings between a given URL (or URL pattern) and worker name. (For detailed information and instructions, see Configuring the File on Microsoft IIS and Apache-Based Servers

    Note: Make sure that the name of the worker mapped to /itg/* pattern in the file matches the name of the worker defined in the file. This worker must also be listed in the worker.list directive of the file.

  6. Restart your IBM HTTP Server to see whether your configuration works.
