Why Web Server for WebCenter? Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) vs Apache HTTP Server? How to configure Apache HTTP Server as a Web server for WebCenter?

Why Web Server for WebCenter?
To configure any HTTP Server for WebCenter is important in following scenarios:-
a.      For a good integration between WebCenter and UCM
b.   To configure SS0
c.       Access UCM few functionalists like Document Manager, document rendition support, advanced metadata edit, the IFRAME functionality, and so on.

Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) vs Apache HTTP Server
You can also use Oracle Web Tier that also has HTTP Server (OHS) instead of Apache HTTP Server. The advantage of using Apache HTTP Server is easy to download due to small size, easy to install and its light weight. The advantage of using OHS is that it’s also based on Apache HTTP Server, already configured for Weblogic Server.

Configure Apache HTTP Server as a Web server for WebCenter
Assuming that WebCenter and UCM is installed and configured. Start the Admin Server and other manage servers. You can access Weblogic Console with the URL http://localhost:7001/console, WebCenter Spaces with http://localhost:8888/webcenter and UCM with http://localhost:16200/cs.

1.      Download the Apache HTTP Server at according to your OS
2.      Install the Apache HTTP Server 2.2.x
3.      Start the Apache HTTP Server and access the Apache HTTP Server using http://localhost. If you see message that “It Works!”, its mean its installed successfully
4.      Copy the from $WL_HOME\wlserver_10.3\server\plugin\win\32\ to APACHE_HOME\modules
5.      Open the httpd.conf file at APACHE_HOME\conf
6.      By default, Apache HTTP Server listen on port 80, you can change the port using Listen property like Listen 7777. We will use default port.
7.      Add the following line in
httpd.conf LoadModule weblogic_module   modules/
8.      Add the following request to proxy

<Location /console>
 SetHandler weblogic-handler
 WebLogicHost localhost
 WebLogicPort 7001

<Location /webcenter>
WeblogicHost localhost
WebLogicPort 8888
SetHandler weblogic-handler

<Location /webcenterhelp>
WeblogicHost localhost
WebLogicPort 8888
SetHandler weblogic-handler

# Discussions
<Location /owc_discussions>
    WebLogicHost localhost
        WebLogicPort 8890
    SetHandler weblogic-handler

<Location /cs>
WeblogicHost localhost
WebLogicPort 16200
SetHandler weblogic-handler

<Location /adfAuthentication>
WeblogicHost localhost
WebLogicPort 16200
SetHandler weblogic-handler

9.      Start the Apache HTTP server
10.  Open the browser and test the following URLs:

 You will see that its working now without any Admin Server port.

Start WebLogic’s Managed Server without Username and Password manually

After you installed Fusion Middleware products like WebCenter, UCM, SOA etc you have plenty of Managed Servers (MS) and you have to enter username and password when you start each Managed Server (WC_Spaces, UCM_server1, IBR_server1, WC_Portlet, WC_Utilities, BAM_server1 etc) from the command line.  To make it automatic so that you don’t need to enter username and password. Follow the following steps:-

Apply to all the managed servers (Unsecured and simple way)

If you want that all my Managed Servers (MS) will not prompt for username and password then this approach is for you. In this approach, you just need to change one file and all the MSs will not prompt you for username and password without doing any change in individual MS. Follow the following instructions:-
1.       Go to bin of weblogic domain. In my case, following is the domain path:- <Middleware-Home>\user_projects\domains\<doman>\bin i.e. C:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\wc_domain\bin
2.       Open the startManagedWebLogic.cmd in any text editor
3.       Set the following two variables with your weblogic admin user and its password
Set WLS_USER=<Admin-User-Name>
Set WLS_PW=<Admin-User-Password>
4.       Save the file and now start your MS from the command line.
startManagedWeblogic <MS-Name> <Admin-Server-IP:Port>
i.e. startManagedWeblogic WC_Spaces
If everything is ok then it should not prompt you for username and password.
Pls note that username and password will remain unencrypted.

Apply to individual MS changes (Secured and recommended way)

If you want to go with secured way and want to configure few servers that will run without asking for username and password then you need to go with this approach.
1.       (First time only). If you not started your MS before, you need to start it once from the command line so that it create required directories inside <Middleware-Home>\user_projects\domains\<domain> \servers\<MS-Name> i.e. C:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\wc_domain\servers\UCM_server1
2.       Once started successfully, shutdown it.
3.       Create a security folder  in <MS-Name> folder
4.       Copy the file from <MiddlewareHome>\user_projects\domains\wc_domain\servers\AdminServer and past it into newly created security folder.
Pls note that you can also create a, just open any text editor like notepad and enter the following content:-

Don’t worry about plain text username and password. Once you start your MS, username and password will be encrypted with AES and will remain encrypted.

How to Install and Configure Oracle ECM 11G R1?

This post covers the quick installation overview of the Oracle Universal Content Management (Oracle UCM) and Oracle Inbound Refinery (Oracle IBR) product of Oracle Enterprise Content Management (ECM) Suite 11G R1( This guide does not contain steps of other ECM products like Oracle IRM, Oracle I/PM and Oracle URM.

Oracle UCM is a content server that store and manage several different types of contents (Web pages, PDF, Images, Videos etc).

Oracle IBR is a conversion server that manages file conversions for electronic assets such as documents, digital images, and motion videos. It also provides thumbnail functionality for documents and images and storyboarding for videos. You can use Oracle IBR to convert content items stored in Oracle Content Server.

  1. Oracle Database 10g ( or later) OR 11G ( or later) (Required before RCU Schema Creation)
  2. Oracle Weblogic 11G R1 (Required before ECM Installation)

Installation Roadmap

Oracle UCM and IBR runs on Oracle Weblogic Server 11G. It is advisable that Oracle UCM and IBR must be installed in the same domain (i.e. WebCenter domain) so that domain related configurations can be utilized.

Installation of UCM and IBR consists of following steps:-

1.     Creation of UCM Schema

2.     Installation of Oracle ECM

3.     Creation of UCM and IBR Domain

4.     Configuration of UCM

5.     Configuration of IBR

Creation of UCM Schema

Run RCU to create the necessary install specific tables / schemas . This will create the schema with which UCM will be connected to DB. Follow the following steps as mentioned in the form of screens.

 In above screen, you can select existing prefix, if you have created schema for WebCenter or SOA or enter a new prefix.

 Enter a password for UCM_OCS Schema.

Installation of Oracle ECM

Install ECM 11G release 1 binaries in the respective Weblogic Middleware Home Directory. This will copy all the binaries to the location specified from where the installer picks up to deploy. Follow the following steps:-

 Enter the patch of Weblogic Middleware home directory path you Weblogic created at the time of installation.

 During installation, it require path of disk2. Give path disk2/stage folder.

Creation of UCM & IBR Domain

This step will create a new domain where UCM and IBR applications and required files/libraries will be deployed. Follow the following steps:-

 Click the schema and enter Service, Host name, port, Schema owner (UCM_OCS) and schema password. Enter schema password that you entered at the time of UCM schema step of RCU.
 Make sure you see message “Test Successful”.

Configuration wizard will create following items:-
  1. New domain (ucm_domain)
  2. AdminServer running on port 7001
  3. UCM_Server running on port 16200
  4. IBR_Server running on port 16250

Configuration of Oracle UCM
  1. Start Admin server to have the new deployments initialized.
  2. Start the UCM Managed Server (UCM_Server) using command prompt. Might be you will face JRF and other libraries and classes loading issues. Its better to use command prompt first time using DOMAIN_HOME\bin\startManagedServer.cmd UCM_server.
  3. To test a newly set up Oracle UCM instance, by accessing Oracle Content Server:

Login with admin user and password that you given at the time of Domain creation.
Perform the following steps for onetime Configuration of Content Server.

Change the Server Instance Name(OracleUCMServer) &  Server Instance Label (Oracle UCM Server).

 Once you completed post-install configuration, a new Menu with name “Oracle Content Server” will be created as shown in following screen:-

Restart the UCM_Server managed Server. Now, you have successfully installed and configured UCM.

Configuration of Oracle IBR
  1. Start the IBR Managed Server (i.e. IBR_server) using command prompt. Might be you will face JRF and other libraries and classes loading issues. Its better to use command prompt first time using DOMAIN_HOME\bin\startManagedServer.cmd IBR_server.
  2. To test a newly set up Oracle IBR instance:-

Login with admin user and password that you given at the time of Domain creation

Perform the following steps for onetime Configuration of IBR Server.

Change the Server Instance Name(IBRServer16250) &  Server Instance Label (Oracle IBR Server).

Once you completed post-install configuration, a new Menu with name “Oracle Inbound Refinery” will be created as shown in following screen:-

Restart the IBR_server manage server instance. Restart the UCM_server manage server instance.

Now, IBR can convert files to TIFF web-viewable files and JPEG image thumbnails. Other supported conversion types like PDF conversions, HTM conversion, Image/video asset conversions etc are installed but they are disabled, you can enable these types as well. For detail, how to enable other types, see

To send jobs for conversion to Oracle IBR from Content Server, perform following steps:-
  1. Creation of Outgoing Provider: Follow steps as mentioned in
  2. Enabling IBR components on Oracle Content Server instance that use IBR for document conversion. (By default it is enabled) . Enable it using following steps mentioned in installation guide:-
  3. Selecting File Formats to be converted by IBR: Use steps mentioned in

In next post, I will explain how to integrate and configure UCM and IBR for Oracle WebCenter 11G.
