How to Setup Web Cache as Virtual Web Site on Port 80 (Doc ID 208339.1)

Last updated on APRIL 07, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle HTTP Server - Version 9.0.2 and later
Web Cache - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document explains how to set up Web Cache in Oracle9i Application Server (9iAS) Release 2 (9.0.2.x/9.0.3.x) on port 80. Web Cache acts as a 'virtual' web site and passes client requests (transparently to user) to application web server, e.g., 9iAS Oracle HTTP Server port 7777. In 9iAS Release 2, Web Cache is fully integrated and installed as part of all Mid-tier installations.

This note is intended for Web Application Server administrators who want to set up the Web Cache listener as a virtual web server on port 80 in front of the 
Oracle 9iAS HTTP Server. This Note applies only to mid-tier installations of Oracle 9iAS with the Web Cache component installed. This Note applies to UNIX or
Windows platforms. On UNIX platforms, ports less than 1024 usually require 'root' privileges. Oracle 9iAS Web Cache automatically takes care of setting up
necessary permissions to start up the privileged port 80.
LINUX-Intel users must first download and apply <Patch 2444024>
