content server installation in Linux
This guide contains step by step screenshots of SAP Content server installation in SUSE Linux for beginners.
CS installation involves in the below steps:
- User creation
- Apache installation
- Content server installation
- Post installation activities
- Content Repository creation in SAP server
Create the New user sapcs and group sapsys in the linux host.
create the new user with home directory /usr/users/sapcs
if you want install only content server login sapcs is enough, if you want to install cache server along with content server, we need to another login as same as sapcs with name of sapcsc
Apache server Installation:
There is inbuilt apache server available in Linux servers. But that is not suitable for sap content server installation. So download the apache binary file for Linux from the below link.
Copy the zip file to server in dump location. Login as sapcs user and Unzip the a folder. Goto the folder and execute the following commands
configure –prefix=/usr/users/sapcs/ –enable-mods-shared=most –with-mpm=prefork –with-expat=builtin
To create the make file
OS> make install
Check the below SAP note for apache server configuration
Note: as per sap recommendation, we need to install the apache server in the sapcs login home directory
Start the installation from swpm.
select Install database instance also. select Cache server if you want to install. in this document i explained only the installation of Content server alone.
use the default values here.
provide the password here for login control and superdba. use the same password what we provide earlier.
select File system. create the required file system before start the installation (/sapdb//SDB/log, /sapdb/SDB/sapdata) etc.
installation is completed.
To check content server whether working or not, use the below URL, and it give output as server details, start time and versions etc.
Post Installation Activities:
Change the cs.conf file permission to 777
change the permission of directory security to 777
Just ensure the below entry available in httpd.conf file in /usr/users/sapcs/conf
Finally the content server is ready, create the content repository in required SAPserver (t.code oac0)
