sap content server installation on HP-UX

Dear Friends,

Recently I installed content server in a HP-UX OS together with my colleague Shawn.

1. The installation guide can be found as below:
service.sap.com/contentserver -> Resource - > " SAP Content Server 6.50 - Unix Installation"

2. the guide is very comprehensive, the every step screenshot is mentioned in the guide, so here I give the important tips that needed, but some are not clearly mentioned in the guide:

2.1 BEFORE compiling Apache, set os environment variables<
CFLAGS="+DD64 +DSitanium2", LDFLAGS="+DD64 +DSitanium2"> for content server USER according to SAP note 664384

2.2  AFTER <make install Apache>, we should add below lines in <apache root directory>/conf/httpd.conf as per SAP note 940584

LoadFile /usr/lib/hpux64/libunwind.so

LoadFile /usr/lib/hpux64/libCsup.so

LoadFile /usr/lib/hpux64/libstd_v2.so

2.2 then restart apache


3. follow the installation guide to start sapinst to install content server together with maxdb

4. After installation, use below link to verify content server status (default port is 1090):

hostname:<port>/ContentServer/ContentServer.dll?serverInfo

only if the serverStatus = running, then we can say content server is running, should be able to work.

Then use can use csadmin to configure SAP to content server.

Best regards,
James
