Re: Install Apache Web Server on AIX 6.12013-01-10T16:29:53Z in response to SystemAdminHello, i got the sources from httpd project website and compiled them to fit the system. I had a howto posted on a blog but the site is no longer available. Here from notepad at least some scraps of various configurations, maybe it'll help, basically you just need to read the logs and trace the error messages there.
64-bit apache 2.2
export CFLAGS=-maix64 export OBJECT_MODE=64 ./configure --enable-mods-shared=most --with-mpm=prefork --with-included-apr
apache with ldap support, tricking AIX 6.1 compiler to work as 5.3 because of problems with creating shared modules
./configure --enable-so --enable-cgi --with-included-apr --enable-ldap=shared \ --enable-authnz-ldap=shared --with-ldap-lib=/opt/freeware/lib --with-ldap-include=/opt/freeware \ /include --with-ldap --enable-ssl=shared --with-ssl=/usr --build=powerpc-ibm-aix184.108.40.206 \ --host=powerpc-ibm-aix220.127.116.11 --target=powerpc-ibm-aix18.104.22.168
apache 64-bit reverse proxy balancer with ldap
export CFLAGS=-maix64; export OBJECT_MODE=64; ./configure --with-mpm=prefork --with-included-apr \ --with-ldap --with-ldap-lib=/usr/lib --with-ldap-include=/usr/include --with-ldap --enable-so \ --enable-cgi --enable-ldap=shared --enable-authnz-ldap=shared --enable-ssl=shared --with-ssl=/usr \ --enable-proxy --enable-proxy-connect --enable-proxy-http --enable-proxy-ajp --enable-proxy-balancer \ --cache-file=configure.cache
Re: Install Apache Web Server on AIX 6.12013-01-11T22:18:24Z in response to SystemAdminApache version 2.2.14 is already on the AIX Web download Pack pre-built. https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/reg/pick.do?source=aixbp&lang=en_US
Just download the zip file, unpack to your AIX system install with installp.
Choose the package labeled "httpd". (there's an error with the web site that I need to get corrected)

I have installed this version 2.2.14 and it seems to have a time out issue on ajp with transactions longer than 5 minutes.
This is the error:
[Wed Sep 25 08:47:55 2013] [error] (70007)The timeout specified has expired: ajp_ilink_receive() can't receive header
[Wed Sep 25 08:47:55 2013] [error] ajp_read_header: ajp_ilink_receive failed
[Wed Sep 25 08:47:55 2013] [error] (120006)APR does not understand this error code: proxy: read response failed from (null) (*)
This is my section of the httpd.conf:
ProxyPass /services ajp://Server_Name.disney.com:8009/services connectiontimeout=3600 timeout=3600
These don't seem to take efect : connectiontimeout=3600 timeout=3600
Any transaction to the back end Tomcat that takes longer than 5 minutes to come back is timing out.
