Last updated on MARCH 29, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Order and Service Management - Version 7.2.2 to 7.2.4 [Release 7.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
While the releases quoted in this document are Oracle Communications Order and Service Management 7.2.2 and Linux 6. This note applies to all Linux 5 and Linux 6 and 7 versions and specifically Oracle Communications Order and Service Management and higher up to OSM 7.3.5


Oracle HTTP Server is a customized version of Apache HTTPD and is part of the Fusion Middleware Web Tier Tools distribution. Oracle recommends Oracle HTTP Server as the load balancing solution for HTTP and HTTPS messages to OSM because it avoids the complexity of integrating WebLogic proxy plug-ins with third party software, provides proven reliability, and is cost and resource efficient. Oracle HTTP Server is fully supported by Oracle premier support.

This technical brief describes the Oracle HTTP Server 11g installation procedures and the steps to configure Oracle HTTP Server for integration with OSM. The instructions provided in this technical brief are for an Oracle Linux 5 or 6 operating system on the x86_64 platform. Oracle recommends that you install the Oracle HTTP Server on a separate machine or VM from the OSM WebLogic Server domain to ensure the best performance. The installation instructions may be slightly different on other operating systems, but you can refer to Fusion Middleware System Requirements and Specifications 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) for operating-system-specific requirements. The configuration details described in this document are applicable on every platform.
