Appeon Server Web Component installation (for third-party Web servers only)

If you use a third-party Web server (such as Apache or IIS) or set up an individual machine (separate from the application server) as the Web server, you will need to install the Appeon Server Web Component. If not, you do not need to run the installation of the Appeon Server Web Component separately since it is included in Appeon Server.


  • Install a third-party Web server that is compatible with the WebSphere redirector plug-in. For a list of compatible third-party Web servers, refer to (Optional) Third-party Web server requirements.

  • Stop the Web server and any other programs before beginning the installation process.

Prerequisites if Web Component installed to multiple Web servers

Appeon Server Web Component can be installed to multiple Web servers. Make sure all Web servers meet the above requirements and repeat the installation steps for the Appeon Server Web Component on each Web server.

Installation instructions

There is no Setup program for installing Appeon Server Web Component on Unix\Linux. You can directly copy the Appeon Server Web Component source files to the Web root (or document root) of the Web server on Unix\Linux.

Step 1: Locate the AppeonWebComponent.tar file in the AppeonWebComponent folder on the Appeon installation program.

Step 2: Decompress the AppeonWebComponent.tar file into the Web root (or document root) of the Web server. For example, the document root of Apache 1.3 is $Apache/htdocs.

Installing and configuring the Web server redirector plug-in

To ensure the third-party Web server works with Appeon Server, install and configure the corresponding redirector plug-in for the Web server. Instructions for installing and configuring the redirector plug-in are provided in Web Server Configuration Guide.
