    Oracle HTTP Server (OHS)  Installation Problem on Win 2003 Server SP2

    765051
      Hi,

      I tried to install Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) on my Windows 2003 server SP2, however I couldn't manage to succeed this.
      I tried on 3 different win2003 server SP2 machines and couldn't able to install properly.
      I easily installed and run this HTTP server on my Windows 7 machine. However on the other partition of my PC
      windows server 2003 is installed. It didn't worked on this OS.

      Once I was somehow able to install OHS on my 64 bit Windows 2008 Server, but again never:((

      I got the following error messages during the install.

      waiting for your answers .

          Maybe this has something to do with the dll msvcr71.dll missing in your WINDOWS/system32 directory. This is the case on Windows XP and could also be your problem.

          What we did is install the fusion middleware software first and then configure it.

          Steps:
          - Install fusion middleware software.
          - Copy the file msvcr71.dll (FMW/windows/extra) to the directory WINDOWS/system32.
          - Copy the file mod_wl_ohs.so (FMW/windows/extra) to the directory Oracle/Middleware/as_1/ohs/modules. Overwrite the existing file.
          - Configure

          Hope this is of any help to you.

              A few guesses what could be wrong.
              - Under which user are you installing, does this user have all the rights to create and start stuff.
              - Have you first installed a weblogic server (this should be installed) and did associate any components with the weblogic domain?

              I usually do not associate anything with my weblogic domain and configure the httpd.conf file for the Apache server by hand instead of using the enterprise manager.

              Once the WebLogic server is installed i follow the following steps

              Installation WebTier
              Run setup.exe
              Select Install Software - Do Not Configure.
              Click Next.
              Prerequisite Checks --> Next.
              Accept the default installation directory.
              Click Next.
              Uncheck i wish to... click Next (in the pop-up Yes)
              Click Install.
              Click when the installation it finished and click Finish

              Configuration WebTier
              Run the file <WebTier-Home>/bin/config.bat.
              Click Next
              Uncheck Associate Selected Components with WebLogic Domain and click Next
              Accept the defaults and click Next
              Enter the parameters for the WebCache
              Web Cache Administrator Password: password
              Confirm Password: password
              Click Next.
              Select Auto Port Configuration and click Next.
              Uncheck I wish to... and click Next. (pop-up Yes)
              Click Configure
              Click Next and Click Finish

              When i follow the above steps an instance of the webtier is running.

                I followed the steps you mentioned about on my win 2003 servers SP2 but it didn't worked. By using these steps on my windows server 2008 x64 and on my PC (windows 7) it worked. The setup of OHS is very simple but there is something wrong about windows server 2003 SP2. Have you ever succeeded on windows 2003 server SP2.

                  No, these steps also worked on Windows XP and thought this to work on Windows 2003 as well.

                  It is actually kind of strange, in the sense that the Windows 2003 is certified (to my knowledge) and Windows XP is not.

                  Maybe you should issue some kind of support request at Oracle support, maybe they can figure out what is wrong with Windows 2003 SP2 and the installation version of WebTier you use.
