Avoiding 404 Errors in GroupWise / OES Web Access

Using Apache2 and Tomcat on Open Enterprise Server Linux, attempting to go the address http://<server address>/gw/webacc will return a 404 Error: Object Not Found.

The problem is that the gw.conf configuration is not present in the
/etc/opt/novell/httpd/sslconf.d directory.


To correct this, enter the following command with required security rights to the server (IE Root access):

cp -s /etc/opt/novell/gw/gw/conf /etc/opt/novell/httpd/sslconf.d

This will create a symbolic link in the sslconf.d directory to the gw.conf file located in the /etc/opt/novell/gw/ directory.

By the way – if you want to disable http and only allow https (SSL) access, you can remove the symbolic link from the /etc/apache2/conf.d file.

These changes effectively add or remove the location of the JkMount statements from the httpd.conf file.

Note: This solution was tested with GroupWise 6.5 Webaccess, Apache 2, Open Enterprise Server Linux, and SUSE Linux 9.0.
