Setting up Name-Based Virtual Hosts on Oracle Application Server with and without Web Cache (Doc ID 231351.1)

Last updated on JUNE 01, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle HTTP Server - Version 9.0.2 to [Release 9iAS to AS10gR2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The purpose of this note is to configure name-based Virtual Hosts on the Middle-Tier of Oracle9i Application Server (9iAS) Release 2 (9.0.2.x) with and without Web Cache installed. 

Note is applicable with OracleAS 10g (9.0.4) and OracleAS 10g (10.1.2.x). (If configuring a Virtual Host on the Infrastructure, you are probably trying
to reconfigure Single Sign-On (SSO) to go through Web Cache, or similar reverse proxy. For that, please see the very bottom of this article).
There are specific changes in Web Cache that need to be made to allow Virtual Hosts to work.  This note will first cover setting up Virtual Hosts without Web Cache. 
The later portion will cover the Web Cache configuration steps.
