Installing a no-charge IBM HTTP Server trial

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How can I install a trial (unsupported) version of IBM HTTP Server?

Cause

IBM HTTP Server is available as a no-charge trial download for projects that require an HTTP server for purposes not directly related to IBM products that have bundled IBM HTTP Server.

Trial versions of IBM HTTP Server are not eligible for customer or product support. For best-effort/community support, see the ibmhttpserver tag on http://stackoverflow.com.

Answer

To install a trial version of IBM HTTP Server, complete the following steps:

1. Download and install IBM Installation Manager, available from the following URL: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27025142#1.8


    Note: If IBM Installation Manager is already installed on the system where you want to install IBM HTTP Server, skip this step.

2. Launch IBM Installation Manager.

3. Determine the IBM Installation Manager repositories for IBM HTTP Server

4. Add the repository URL via the File > Preferences menu ('Repositories' page) in IBM Installation Manager

5. Return to the default IBM Installation Manager screen, click Install, find the"IBM HTTP Server for WebSphere Application Server" in the list of Installation Packages, and follow the prompts.


Notes:

  • The WebSphere Application Server Web Server Plug-in and the Plug-in Configuration Tool are available as part of the same repository as IBM HTTP Server. However, these components are typically used directly as part of an IBM product that has bundled them and should be installed through non-trial/standalone mechanisms.
  • Trial versions of IBM HTTP Server are not eligible for customer or product support. For best-effort/community support, see the ibmhttpserver tag on http://stackoverflow.com.
