After Enabling ShortHostnameRedirect in mod_osso.conf, 10.1.3 HTTP Server Fails to Start. (Doc ID 429411.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 16, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle HTTP Server - Version 10.1.3.0.0 to 10.1.3.2.0 [Release AS10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

OracleAS 10.1.3 has been 'integrated' with OracleAS Identity Management by following the steps given in the documentation e.g.

Oracle´┐Ż Application Server Administrator's Guide 10g Release 3 (10.1.3.1.0)
Chapter 6 Reconfiguring Application Server Instances

The objective is then to allow access of the Single Sign-On protected j2ee application via the short hostname. To do this it is necessary to uncomment the following lines in:

$ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/conf/mod_osso.conf

#PerlModule Apache::ShortHostnameRedirect
#PerlHeaderParserHandler Apache::ShortHostnameRedirect

change to

PerlModule Apache::ShortHostnameRedirect 
PerlHeaderParserHandler Apache::ShortHostnameRedirect

After uncommenting these lines the HTTP Server fails to start with the following errors being seen in ORACLE_HOME/opmn/logs/HTTP_Server~1
