Review and follow steps 1 and 2 from the ArcIMS Installation Guide on the DVD. These two steps ensure that the system meets the minimum requirements and assists in planning the ArcIMS site configuration. To open the ArcIMS Installation Guide, navigate to the DVD in Windows and double-click on Install.htm.
Previous versions of ArcIMS must be uninstalled before proceeding. The setup program for ArcIMS on Windows prompts for the removal of previously installed versions.
If ArcIMS components were distributed among several computers, it is recommended to first remove the components on each computer before continuing, by going to Add/Remove Programs and selecting Remove for ArcIMS.
A supported Web server and Servlet Engine must be properly installed and configured before running the setup program for ArcIMS.
Click on the download link for the Windows Offline Installation Multi-Language. The file jdk-1_5_0_06-windows-i586-p.exe is downloaded.
Run the installer after it has finished downloading.
Accept all of the default installation options, unless changes are required. This installs both the Java Runtime and Development Kit.
After the install, Navigate to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Java.
Click the 'Update' tab and remove the checkmark for 'Check for Updates Automatically'.
Click Apply and close the Java Control Panel.
Install Apache 2.0.58.
Prior to installing Apache Web Server, be sure to either uninstall IIS Web Server or change the port of its Default Web site from port 80 to an unreserved port (e.g., port 81). When changing the IIS port number, be sure to restart the IIS Web Server for the change to take effect. Failure to take any of these actions results in a failed Apache Web Server install.
Verify that the installation was successful. Open a Web browser and type http://machinename (replace with the server's machinename).
The Apache page: 'Seeing this instead of the website you expected?' should display. If so, proceed to step 4.
If the page does not display, proceed to the next step (Step P) to ensure that the Apache Web server is running.
Open the Windows Services panel.
A service named Apache2 should be listed as started. If not, select the Apache2 service and start it by clicking the 'Start Service' triangle in the toolbar.
If the default Apache page still does not display, an error was made during one of the installation steps. Repeat the installation, or check the Apache Documentation. Additional resources on installing the Apache Web Server can be found here.
Install ServletExec AS 5.0.
Navigate to the ServletExec directory on the ArcIMS installation CD. Double-click on the 'ServletExec_AS_50.exe' application to begin the install.
At the 'ServletExec 5.0 Application Server Setup' window, click Next.
At the Setup Type window ensure that 'Install a ServletExec AS Instance' is selected and click Next.
Read the 'License Agreement' and click Yes.
Read the 'Information Page,' and click Next.
At the 'Choose Destination Location' window accept the default location, or select Browse to change the directory location. Once a directory location has been selected, click Next.
At the 'Enter Text' window, enter a name to uniquely identify this 'ServletExec Application Server Instance,' For example, computer name.
At the 'Setup Type' window, select Apache HTTP Server and click Next.
At the 'Select a Server' window confirm that Apache 2.0.58 is selected. Click Next.
A warning may be returned that ServletExec AS 5.0 may not work with Apache version 2.0.58. Click OK to dismiss this message.
At the 'Enter Text' window accept the default port of 8888 and click Next.
At the 'Confirm ServletExec Installation' window review all selections made and click Next.
At the 'Get ServletExec Admin Username and Password' window enter a username and password to administer ServletExec. Confirm the password. Click Next.
At the Question box asking if users wish to install as an NT Service, click Yes.
At the Information box informing that webadapter.properties was updated, click OK.
At the Question box asking if users wish to have the HTTP.conf file updated automatically, click Yes.
At the Information box informing users to check the HTTP.conf file, note the location of the original HTTP.conf file and click OK.
At the 'Install Wizard Complete' window, uncheck the 'Display Readme' option and click Finish to exit the install wizard.
Verify that the Web server protocol and Web server name are correct, including the domain and port number. The default is port 80.
On Windows XP/2003 machines, Internet Explorer sometimes does not show the host name and port number. If this is the case, right-click near the top of the window, under the address bar, and select 'Allow Blocked Content'.
Test both components.
The result for Test 1 should be: IMS v9.2.0 Build_Number=514.1916 Version=9.2.0 Test successful
The result for Test 2 should be: Version=9.2.0 Build_Number=514.2159 Test successful
If these tests are successful, the ArcIMS Application Server and ArcIMS Servlet Connector are configured correctly. If an error message is received, select the error number from the drop-down list and click View. The error number and a description displays. Follow the instructions in the description to fix the problem and run the Diagnostics tool again.
