Installing IBM HTTP Server for i2 Analyze

An i2 Analyze deployment might require a reverse proxy server that routes client requests to the appropriate destination.

The deployment toolkit can automatically configure an IBM® HTTP Server instance to act as a reverse proxy. To support this approach, install IBM HTTP Server as follows:

Install IBM HTTP Server from an archive file in the following location:
  • For Windows™: C:\IBM\HTTPServer
  • For Linux®: /opt/IBM/HTTPServer

For more information about installing, see Installing IBM HTTP Server.

The Web Server Plug-ins for WebSphere® Application Server are included in the archive installer.

  • The bin/ikeyman file and the bin/gskcmd file use the Java™ in your provided $JAVA_HOME environment variable. After you deploy i2® Analyze, you can set your $JAVA_HOME environment variable to the directory where the deployment toolkit installs Java.
  • Ensure that Microsoft™ Internet Information Server is either inactive or not present on the i2 Analyze server.
  • On Linux, the user that you use to run the deployment scripts must have write permissions on the /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/conf/httpd.conf file.
