Authors: Dr. Hans-Joachim Pross
Build basis: Websphere Application Server 8.5.5, IBM HTTP Server 8.5.5, IBM Installation Manager 1.7.1

A small introduction, how to install IBM WebSphere Application Server 8.5.5 and IBM HTTP Server 8.5.5 for the IBM Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management Plattfrom. This guide is part of the Configuring Enterprise CLM Reverse Proxies guide.

Prerequisites and Assumptions

For the following the IBM Installation Manager bits are assumed to be installed.
Tip Sofware Versions used
* IBM Installation Manager V 1.7.1
* IBM WebSphere Application Server V 8.5.5
* IBM HTTP Server V 8.5.5

Installation Directories
It is a good practice, NOT to use the default Installation Directory,
because this includes spaces in the name and is a virtual directory.
A good choice is to take C:\IBM as root folder.

Installation of WebSphere Application Server and IBM HTTP server

Download and extract the installation files for the WebSphere Application Server, the WebSphere Application Server Supplements and, if available the fix packs. Fix packs have to be at the same level as the WAS itself. Trial downloads can be found at the "Optional Programs" tab of Jazz product download page on www.jazz.net. Downloads to be used for production purposes must be taken from your Passport Advantage site. Fix packs are located at www.ibm.com/support/fixcentral.
Start the IBM Installation Manager, connect the package repositories and click Install.

Select the 4 packages and click Next >.
After having read and accepted the license agreement, click Next >.

It is a good practice, NOT to use the default Installation Directory, because this includes spaces in the name and is a virtual directory on the Windows Server operating systems. A good choice and used in this inroduction is to take C:\IBM as root folder.

On the next screen you don't want to install additional languages. At least I don't want, although I'm a German. Just click Next >.

In a Quad Core VMware Image on my 2,70 GHz machine
the installation took about 7 minutes.
