Configure Apache plugin 1.1 with WLS 10.3.0 ( over SSL )

Filed under: Plugin — streethawkz @ 3:51 pm

Steps to configure Apache plugin 1.1 with Weblogic Server :

– Download the latest 1.1 plugin from the link below :

Link : http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/wls-plugins-096117.html

– Now unzip the file that you have downloaded. ( Eg : WLSPlugin1.1-11gR1PS3.zip ).

– In this example I am configuring apache 2.2.x with WLS 10.3.0 in Windows environment  — extract the files under : WLSPlugin1.1-Apache2.2-win32-x86.zip\

– Now copy all the files present under ” WLSPlugin1.1-Apache2.2-win32-x86.zip\apache_1.1_32bit\lib ” to ” <APACHE_HOME>/bin ” folder.

( Note : Do not copy ” libapr-1.dll ” ).

– Copy ” mod_wl.so ” from  ” WLSPlugin1.1-Apache2.2-win32-x86.zip\apache_1.1_32bit\lib ” to ” <APACHE_HOME>/modules ” folder

– Take a backup of httpd.conf file present in ” <APACHE_HOME>\conf\ ” folder.

– Edit the httpd.conf file and make the following changes :

LoadModule weblogic_module modules/mod_wl.so

# for a single server
<IfModule mod_weblogic.c>
WebLogicHost 127.0.0.1
WebLogicport 7001
MatchExpression *
Debug ON
WLLogFile c:/global_proxy1.1.log
DebugConfigInfo On
</IfModule>
<Location /console>
SetHandler weblogic-handler
</Location>

– Now start the Apache server and weblogic server.

– Access http://localhost:7001/console

– Now, access the following URL :

http://localhost/console

Apache 1.1 is successfully configured now..!!

Now, lets configure SSL with WLS ( using default demo certs )

– Open a command prompt and run setDomainEnv.cmd

– Create an Oracle Wallet with orapki utility :

orapki wallet create -wallet my-wallet -auto_login_only

” my-wallet ” folder will be created under ” D:\weblogic\wls1030\user_projects\domains\apache_1.1_ssl\ ”

– Now run the following command if you are not the Admin user :

cacls D:\weblogic\wls1030\user_projects\domains\apache_1.1_ssl\my-wallet\cwallet.sso /e /g puneeth:F

Sample Output :

processed file: D:\weblogic\wls1030\user_projects\domains\apache_1.1_ssl\my-wallet\cwallet.sso

– Now import the CA into Oracle Wallet :

orapki wallet add -wallet my-wallet -trusted_cert -cert D:\weblogic\wls1030\wlserver_10.3\server\lib\CertGenCA.der -auto_login_only

– To enable SSL on Apache make the following change to your httpd.conf file :

# for a single server
<IfModule mod_weblogic.c>
WebLogicHost 127.0.0.1
WebLogicport 7002
SecureProxy ON
WLSSLWallet “D:/weblogic/wls1030/user_projects/domains/apache_1.1_ssl/my-wallet”
MatchExpression *
Debug ON
WLLogFile c:/global_proxy1.1.log
DebugConfigInfo On
</IfModule>
<Location /console>
SetHandler weblogic-handler
</Location>
– Enable SSL on Weblogic Server
– Now start Apache and weblogic Server.

– Hit the following URL to check if Apache is configured successfully over SSL :

http://localhost/console

Troubleshooting :

– After you have configured apache check if all the settings are right in the bridge config page :

http://localhost/?__WebLogicBridgeConfig/

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Check the following :

– Make sure you are using the latest plugin ( The very first line shows the build version ).

– WLS Server status is ” OK “.

– parameter ” WLSSLWallet: ” is correct.

– parameter ” SecureProxy: ” is ON.

# ‘Main’ server configuration

#
# ServerName gives the name and port that the server uses to identify itself.

# Redirect: Allows you to tell clients about documents that used to

# will make a new request for the document at its new location.
# Example:
# Redirect permanent /foo http://WinAS2-in.in.oracle.com/bar

# Alias: Maps web paths into filesystem paths and is used to
# access content that does not live under the DocumentRoot.
# Example:
# Alias /webpath /full/filesystem/path
#
# If you include a trailing / on /webpath then the server will
# require it to be present in the URL.  You will also likely
# need to provide a <Directory> section to allow access to
# the filesystem path.
#
# ScriptAlias: This controls which directories contain server scripts.
# ScriptAliases are essentially the same as Aliases, except that

# AddHandler allows you to map certain file extensions to “handlers”:

# For type maps (negotiated resources):
#AddHandler type-map var

# Filters allow you to process content before it is sent to the client.
