Oracle Tips by Burleson
and Restarting the Oracle HTTP Server
The next chapter will walk through installing the
HTML DB into an existing database and doing some configuration. After
the configuration, it will become necessary to restart the HTTP Server
so it can pick up the new setting in the configuration.
For Linux/UNIX, it can be beneficial to create a
shell script to restart the HTTP Server. The following is a good
On Windows, there is a program group created
during installation in Start ą
Programs ą Oracle
Application Server - OHS_HOME ą
Oracle HTTP Server. In this group, there will be two shortcuts to
Stop and Start the HTTP Server managed process. I like to create
three extra shortcuts that will handle some of the other common
Stop/Start tasks that are often performed when making configuration
changes. Figure 1.4 shows what the program group will look like after
adding the shortcuts.
The shortcuts do the following:
Start HTTP Server (created by installation):
This starts the HTTP Server managed process. For this to succeed,
the OPMN service must already be started.
Stop HTTP Server (created by installation):
This stops the HTTP Server managed process and leaves the OPMN
Restart HTTP Server: This stops and restarts
the HTTP Server managed process. This one will have to be created
manually, but it comes in handy when making changes to the
configuration files. It will also come in handy in the next
OPMN StopAll: This stops all managed processes,
such as HTTP Server, and also stops the OPMN service. Although it
is not necessary to use this in most circumstances, it does become
necessary when changing configuration files such as
OPMN StartAll: This starts the OPMN service and
all managed processes, such as HTTP Server.
The procedure for setting up the additional
shortcut items in the Oracle HTTP Server program group is as follows:
Create a copy of any of the shortcuts that currently exist.
Rename the shortcut to the text shown in the table below.
Open the shortcut properties and change the text in the Target
field as shown in the table below.
Those following along should replace the
underlined portion of the text with the ORACLE_HOME location used
during the installation.
That completes the installation of Oracle HTTP
Server. The next chapter will cover installing HTML DB into an
existing database and performing some configuration. At that point,
the configuration files required for Oracle HTTP Server to communicate
with HTML DB will be explained. After the configuration, it will be
necessary to restart the Oracle HTTP Server so it can pick up the new
settings in the configuration.
