IBM HTTP Server

access_time Updated Dec 5, 2022

Limitations and considerations

To install the IBM HTTP Server:

  • IHS must be installed in /opt/IBM/HTTPServer. If IHS is installed in a different path, use the appropriate path for your IHS installation.
  • IHS must be installed on CentOS. If assistance is needed with another platform, contact Support.

Installation

  1. Install the Signal Sciences agent for your OS.

  2. If you’re on IHS 9.0.0 or higher, download the Signal Sciences module package:

    Note: Replace <VERSION> with the latest module version found here: https://dl.signalsciences.net/?prefix=sigsci-module-apache/
    If using IBM HTTP Server (IHS), the Signal Sciences Apache module is the appropriate module to install as IHS is based on Apache HTTP Server.

    1. Download the Apache module.
