This techdoc shows all the steps to install WebSphere MQ 7.5 in Linux, while co-existing ("side-by-side") with MQ 7.0.1 and MQ 7.1.
In Feb-2014 the new Chapter 7 was added to describe the process for applying Fix Pack 184.108.40.206.
1) For MQ 8.0 or later, you can consult the related tutorial:
Installing WebSphere MQ 8.0 to coexist with MQ 7.0.1, 7.1 and 7.5 in Linux x86 64-bit, including Fix Pack 220.127.116.11
2) This technote builds on top of the following document:
Installing WebSphere MQ 7.1 to coexist with MQ 18.104.22.168 in Linux + applying fix pack 22.214.171.124
MQ 7.5 includes also Advanced Messaging Security (AMS) and Managed File Transfer. This document does NOT cover their installation. The scope is only for the MQ Server, MQ Explorer, JMS, Development toolkit and GSKit.
The minimum version of MQ 7.0 that allows coexistence is 126.96.36.199. Because, at the time of writing this techdoc, the latest Fix Pack was 188.8.131.52, then 184.108.40.206 is used in this document.
The "primary" installation will be MQ 220.127.116.11 and this techdoc shows you how to setup the environment to use MQ 7.0, MQ 7.1 and MQ 7.5.
The overall instructions apply also to other UNIX distributions: AIX, HP-UX and Solaris.

Chapter 1: Installing MQ 7.5 side-by-side to MQ 18.104.22.168 and 7.1
