  Oracle Tips by Burleson

Stopping 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 example:

export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/ohs

$ORACLE_HOME/opmn/bin/opmnctl restart ias-component=HTTP_Server

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 service running.

  • 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 chapter.

  • 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 ORACLE_HOME\opmn\conf\httpd.xml.

  • 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:

1.       Create a copy of any of the shortcuts that currently exist.

2.       Rename the shortcut to the text shown in the table below.

3.       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.
