Web Application Inaccessible After Deployment on Sun Web Server 6.1 (Doc ID 1150799.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle iPlanet Web Server - Version: 6.0 and later   [Release: 6.0 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The browser reports a "File not found" error when the web application's URL is accessed through the browser.

The web server's errors log will report the following:

[DATE:TIME] warning (PID): for host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx trying to GET /web-app, send-file reports: HTTP4142: can't find /path_to_web_server_docs_directory/web-app (File not found)

When started, the web server's errors log file will not provide information on the JVM the web server is using, for example:

[DATE:TIME] info (Parent PID): CORE1116: Sun web server version information
[DATE:TIME] info (web server PID): HTTP3072: [LS ls1] http://web_server_host:port ready to accept requests
[DATE:TIME] info (web server PID): CORE3274: successful server startup

This contrasts with the JVM, and search web application, information that is reported when the web server is started with the j2ee plugin enabled:

[DATE:TIME] info (Parent PID): CORE1116: Sun web server version information
[DATE:TIME] info ( web server PID): CORE5076: Using [Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM, Version X.X.X_XX] from [Sun Microsystems Inc.]
[DATE:TIME] info ( web server PID): WEB0100: Loading web module in virtual server [default_virtual_server] at [/search]
[DATE:TIME] info (web server PID): HTTP3072: [LS ls1] http://web_server_host:port ready to accept requests
[DATE:TIME] info (web server PID): CORE3274: successful server startup


Changes

Disabling the web server's j2ee plugin causes this behavior.
