Comments on: Oracle WebTier multiple OHS instances Friends of Oracle and Java Sat, 02 May 2015 22:48:39 +0000 hourly 1 By: Michel Schildmeijer Sun, 11 Dec 2011 15:21:08 +0000 Hi Ali
You must ensure you choose the OHS WebTier Standalone installation.
Therefore, during installation, you must choose Install only, so the option ” Install Software – Do Not Configure” In this case you only install the software.
When you’re finished, run the configure script from the WebTier Home( the folder where you installed your software). During configure you can choose to create a new WebLogic domain or to connect to an existing WebLogic Domain. You should choose to connect to the existing one, and then you will get prompted to fill in host, weblogic admin user, password and port of your WebLogic domain on your other host.
After this, you not finished yet, then you should configure routing between your WebLogic Domain and OHS using the mod_wl_ohs module from Apache.
Hope this helps
Kind regards

Need your help , Im installing ohs with webgate to integrate with peoplesoft, and im confused in OHS installation, that we have our weblogic server (Host A) and (ohs)oracle http server(Host B) mean both are on different nodes, so when we install our ohs server  it is asking for entering middleware_home (which is in on our case is weblogic server known as host A)
so do i mention it ip/middleware_home for it or not, plus it is on windows environment.

1) Depends on several things. VIP only is not enough; especially when you want to connect outside your network and dont want any trace to you local machines, you use an extra layer where you place this ( or another ) Apache like  solution.
2) Of course, you are absolutely right. This post is just to make clear how the idea works
But I would seperate in on the instance level and not on the component level. In this case you have separate instance configurations all controlled separate by opmn
So opmnctl createinstance with the neccesary parameters.

By: Jacco H. Landlust Tue, 21 Dec 2010 20:55:44 +0000 I have 2 questions.
1) wouldn’t virtualhosting solve this issue much easier? (either name of ip based)
2) if you really have to setup different apaches, wouldn’t opmnctl createcomponent -componentName $name_of_http_server -componentType OHS (and then some more parameters, you can read docs too :) ) do the trick just as easy?
