Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  All users of IBM WebSphere Application      *
    *                  Server                                      *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: IBM HTTP Server server-status request   *
    *                      isn't honored if plugin has /* URIs     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When a request is submitted for IBM HTTP Server server-status
    and the plugin has a /* for a URI, the plugin will forward the
    request to WebSphere Application Server which will return a
    404 instead of passing it back for IBM HTTP Server to handle.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Plugin code has been updated to recognize the
    server-status request and immediately pass it back to IBM HTTP
    Server to service.
    
    NOTE:  The 8.5.5 release does not have this problem.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 8.0.0.11 & 7.0.0.39.  Please refer to the
    Recommended Updates page for delivery information:
