Note: These instructions assume that you have used the WebSphere Application Assembly Tool to create an enterprise archive (EAR) that contains the Web Application Archive (WAR) file that is provided in the JSPWiki package. See Assembling JSPWiki Into A WebSphere Enterprise Archive (EAR) for instructions.

  1. Make sure that the HTTP server and the default WebSphere server are active.

  2. Start the WebSphere administration console. On a Windows platform, start at the taskbar and click Start, Programs, IBM WebSphere, Application Server V5.0, Administrative Console. Alternatively, and on other platforms, start your favorite browser and navigate to the http://localhost:9090/admin/ page.

  3. On the resulting Login dialog box enter a user identifier and, if necessary, the password for authentication.

  4. On the console's left hand navigation pane, expand the Applications section.

  5. In the resulting list, click Install New Application.

  6. In the Preparing for the application installation panel, select the radio button for the Local path. Click Browse. Note that I use this option even when the ear file is already on the server just to use the browse function. It is just too difficult to enter a fully qualified server path without error and it does not hurt to use the upload option even when the file is already in the proper directory.

  7. In the resulting Choose file dialog box, navigate to the directory that contains the archive file and select the archive file. Click Open.

  8. Back on the Preparing for the application installation panel, click Next.

  9. In the updated Preparing for the application installation panel, select the checkbox to Generate Default Bindings. If necessary change the virtual host name to the desired value. By convention, I use the default_host. Click Next.

  10. In the resulting Install New Application panel, change the Step 1:default values if necessary. Then click Next.

  11. In the updated Install New Application panel, change the Step 2: default values if necessary. Then click Next.

  12. In the updated Install New Application panel, change the Step 3: default values if necessary. Then click Next.

  13. In the updated Install New Application panel, review the values and, if they are correct, click Finish.

  14. In the resulting Installing... panel, messages will show the progress of the application installation. Eventually, you will see a message that says the application was installed successfully, however, the installation will not be permanent until you save the master configuration.

  15. Either click on Save in the menu bar or click on the Save to Master Configuration link on the Installing... panel.

  16. On the resulting Save panel, click the Save button. When the configuration has been saved, the home panel will be displayed.

  17. Configure jspwiki.properties for your wiki site.

  18. Extract the sample pages from the JSPWiki package into the data directory specified in jspwiki.properties.

  19. Back in the administration console, in the left hand navigation panel, expand Applications if required.

  20. In the subtree under Applications, click Enterprise Applications.

  21. In the resulting Enterprise Applications pane, select the check box to the left of your new enterprise application and click the Start button. A message will appear at the top of the panel and the application's status indicator will change when the application has started.

  22. In the left hand navigation panel, expand Environment. In the resulting subtree, click Update Web Server Plugin.

  23. In the resulting Update web server plugin configuration panel, click OK. A message will appear at the top of the panel when the plugin has be updated.

  24. On the console menu bar, click Logout.

  25. Navigate your browser to your new wiki site. Remember, the URL will contain the hostname and context specified in your configuration.
