Instructions provided describe the installation and configuration of Apache 2.2.4 with Tomcat 6.0.13 with mod_jk using J2SE Development Kit 5.0 Update 13 for ArcIMS 9.3 on Windows.
Specific information for the installation of ArcIMS is included with the product's Install Guide.
This installation requires the following software:
· J2SE Development Kit (JDK) 5.0 Update 13
· Apache Web Server version 2.2.4
· Tomcat 6.0.13
· ArcIMS 9.3 Installation DVD
Note: A user account that has Administrator rights on the ArcIMS machine is required.
Previous versions of ArcIMS must be removed before installing ArcIMS 9.3. The setup program for ArcIMS on Windows prompts for the removal of previously installed versions.
If previous ArcIMS components were distributed among several computers, it is recommended to first remove the components on each computer in the Control Panels Add/Remove Programs.
Warning: A supported Web Server and Servlet Engine must be properly installed and configured before running the setup program for ArcIMS.
Warning: 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.

Note: 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.
Warning: If a path to an older SDK version is listed, cancel the Tomcat installation. Make sure that a Java SDK is installed and the environment variables JAVA_HOME and PATH do not include any old entries regarding the Java Runtime Environment or are pointing to the J2SDK location correctly.
Note: Verify that old references to JAVA_HOME in the path variable have been removed; for example, <drive:>\jdk1.3.1 or similar.
Warning: If this test fails, first check the URL carefully for case or spelling issues, then retrace the installation steps. Do not proceed to install ArcIMS.
Note: It may be that the URL works if 'http://localhost:8080/...' is specified. This indicates that while the Tomcat Web Server is working on port 8080, the required redirect from the Apache Web Server is failing. Retrace the installation steps. Do not proceed to install ArcIMS.
Note: 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'.
Note: 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.
