File System for Web Server
As you might already be aware of , if not there are three ORACLE_HOME in Apps
Database ORACLE_HOME ( also called as 8i, 9i or 10g HOME depending on your database version)
Forms & Reports ORACLE_HOME ( also called as 806 or 6i depneding on Forms Version)
Internet Application Server ( iAS 18.104.22.168.2 or 22.214.171.124 depending on your Apps Version 11.5.5..11.5.10)
Web Server comes under third ORACLE_HOME & I will use it as IAS_ORACLE_HOME in my site
in future. If you have Installed Oracle E-Business Suite Vision Instance you will
see it under Middle Tier under . Lets assume you have installed apps under /u01/VIS11I then
your iAS will be under directory /u01/VIS11I/ora/iAS & your IAS_ORACLE_HOME environment
variable will point to /u01/VIS11I/ora/iAS. All files & directory related to Application Server
will be under this directory.
For Apps DBA / oracle apps sysadmin following files/dir are important
SID_Hostname.env, Apache, network .
Env file is to set environment variable to iAS_ORACLE_HOME (During iAS patching )
Apache is main directory where your most webserver configuration Sit also called as APACHE_TOP .
Important directory under Apache are Apache, Jserv and plsql .
Login to your server & check if these files/directories exists.
Under iAS/Apache/Apache important directory/files are bin (executable,
apachectl,httpd) ,conf ( httpd.conf, httpd_pls.conf, oracle_apache.conf ), logs
(access_log, access_log_pls, error_log, error_log_pls, httpd.pid )
Under iAS/Apache/Jserv files/directory you want to know are
etc(config files), logs(jvm,mod_jserv.log)
Under iAS/Apache/modplsql important bits are cache (cookie,plsql),
cfg(wdbsvr.app , *.conf)
Its not feasible to explain features/importance of all files as and when
I discuss a particular topic in further pages. I am sure you as oracle apps dba
