Installing Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 on CentOS 5.3 or Fedora 10-11 or Ubuntu

Installing Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 on CentOS 5.3 or Fedora 10/11 or Ubuntu

In my free time, I just tried out Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 update 5 on CentOS 5.3 and Fedora10 and 11 and Ubuntu. Joe Mccabe has also written a similar blog on this

Download Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 for Linux and extract the contents of tar.gz file

$gunzip  sjsws-7_0u5-linux-i586.tar.gz; tar -xvf sjsws-7_0u5-linux-i586.tar

Run installer, it will fail

$./setup

error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

CentOS


To fix this problem  install "compat-libstdc++-33" package as shown below
$sudo yum -y install compat-libstdc++-33

Now run setup, it will work fine.

Fedora 10/11


Install "compat-libstdc++-33" package as shown below
$sudo yum -y install compat-libstdc++-33

There is one more problem in Fedora 11 but is I heard fixed in 7.0 update 6 (onwards).

If you get error message like

lib/libfreebl3.so: version `NSSRAWHASH_3.12.3' not found (required by /lib64/libcrypt.so.1)

You need workaround as given in https://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=2212337

Ubuntu

You need to install libstdc++5 as shown below

$sudo apt-get install libstdc++5



If you get an error which has something that looks like /bin/domainname not found, you need to install

$sudo apt-get install nis

I have tested on Ubuntu 9.04.

*Note that Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 update 5 or 6 is not officially certified or supported on CentOS or Fedora or Ubuntu, but here's how you can make
it work.

    Hi,

    While I have been running WS7 on Ubuntu for a while now (8.04, 8.10, & 9.04) I am unable to get it to run on 9.10 (Karmic Koala). There is no libstdc++5 available - this version only has libstdc++6. Have you been able to find a work-around?

    Thanks!
