Pinned topic How to configure Websphere WAS for enabling http url for file download

‏2012-11-15T17:55:55Z |
Hello guys,
I have just started using Websphere WAS 8.0.0.1 installed on AIX machine . I have an application running on this server. The application generates output reports as text files on the unix server (AIX). I have to configure the WAS server and enable a http URL using which users can download the report files from the server.
Request you to let me know how do I proceed for the same. If there is any link or document that already has these details, I request you to share the same. Thanks in advance. :)
Best Regards,
James24

    If you're using IHS, add a <Directory> stanza with the same contents as the one for the default document root and an Alias pointing to where your files are written to.

    If you're not using IHS, you're in the wrong forum.

      Hi,
      I am using IHS . In the WAS console-> under Web servers-> I created one server (IBM HTTP Server).. Now when I try to start it, it is giving error "Could not make a connection to the IBM HTTP Administration server on node httpserver1". How do I debug this?

        Check if the IHS Admin Server (adminctl) is running. Confirm the port in conf/admin.conf vs. the port in the WAS Admin Console for the admin server. Ditto for the IP.

        If still not working, change LogLevel to debug in conf/admin.conf and run bin/adminctl restart. Check the admin_error.log after sending a new start request.

        Or, just start IHS on the webserver system instead of via the WAS admin console.
