How to Configure mod_wl_ohs with Oracle HTTP Server and Oracle WebLogic Server (Doc ID 1316142.1)

Last updated on APRIL 28, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3.2 and later
Oracle HTTP Server - Version and later
Oracle Fusion Middleware - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Originally written for 11g but also applies to 12c. See Documentation links at bottom.


Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) may be used in front of Oracle WebLogic Server (WLS) with the use of the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g/12c installed mod_wl_ohs. This document will outline the basic steps to set this up using a standard and best practice configuration. Once this is working, you can configure more advanced configurations and/or configure using the Oracle Fusion Middleware Control.

This document will guide you to a standard setup using a single instance and a cluster for use with custom Java applications deployed on Oracle WebLogic Server. Different installation types may have this configured for you, but on the basic level (or on an Oracle Web-Tier installation), it is not configured by default and you should know how the different parts work together and different options.
