PHP Plug-In for Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7
By sriram on Apr 07, 2011
Finally, I found time to publish a PHP Plug-In for Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7. This plug-in is delivered on a personal effort to help customers try out PHP within Oracle iPlanet Web Server (formerly known as Sun Java System/ONE Web Server 7). You can download the binaries from here .
Currently, the bits are available for Linux (32/64-bit) and Solaris 10 SPARC (32/64-bit) only. If time permits, I will try to make one available for Windows as well.
Note: Please note that these binaries are made available on a personal basis and is offered with no warranties (both implied and explicit) and my employer - Oracle or any of its affiliates - does not endorse my effort on this.
I did not have enough time to test enough on these binaries and at beast can be considered for evaluation purposes and if you are deploying this on production then you are very much on your own !!!
Now that I have clarified your legal rights with downloading these binaries, let me just do a quick walk through on how to get PHP working within Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7 (hereforth simply referred as Web Server ).
- Download latest version (as of April'2011) of Web Server from Oracle E-Delivery. For more information, about this latest release, check out Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7 Update 11 Release Notes
- Once Web Server 7 is successfully installed at say /opt/oracle/webserver7.
- You will need to download the corresponding version of PHP Plug-In for Web Server 7 from here (Please download the bits corresponding to your OS)
- Now, unpack this zip file under <Web Server 7 Installation Directory>/plugins directory
- Finally, go to the unzipped location and run the following commands :
./setupPHP -instancename=https-<hostname of your machine> (this should correspond to the https- directory that you will find within the Web Server 7 installation directory.)
Now, you are ready to evaluate PHP within Web Server 7. You could proceed to create new PHP scripts or deploy PHP applications like WordPress or Joomla within Web Server 7.
If you are satisfied with the PHP configuration, you will need to run the following command so that Web Server 7 administration server is aware of your changes.
sriramn@sriramn:~$ cd /opt/oracle/webserver7
sriramn@sriramn:~$ ./bin/wadm pull-config --user=admin --config=HOSTNAME HOSTNAME
