Oracle HTTP Server 12.2.1 Silent mode Installation (Oracle Linux 7)

The objective of this post is to install the Oracle HTTP Server 12.2.1 on Oracle Linux platform. The prerequisites for this task JDK 1.8 and Oracle infrastructure 12.2.1 required if you wish to install Collocated OHS with WebLogic.

You could be selective while installing OHS there are two options:

  1. Collocated OHS [WebLogic required]
  2. Standalone OHS [independ of WebLogic]

Preparation for OHS 12.2.1 installation

You can Download the zip V78157-01.zip from https://edelivery.oracle.com/
Now unzip the downloaded zip file which contains a bin file. Copy the bin file at the target installation machine (any location). Best practice is to use shared folder location which can be reusable for other machines as well.

Oracle Linux 7 vagrant box which had some of the libraries and some of them were missing. My first run was failed with the following:

OHS 12.2.1 installation errors: System libraries missing

Here the fix is simple you need to install the missing /Failed libraries. To install you must be in the super user that is root user. [sudo -i] from the sudoer user.

Install the below libraries on the Oracle Linux 7 OS

yum install -y compat-libcap1-1.10
yum install -y compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-x86_64;  
yum install -y compat-libstdc;
yum install -y compat-libstdc
yum install -y compat-libstdc*
yum install -y libstdc++-devel*
yum install -y sysstat-10*
yum install -y gcc*
yum install -y ksh*
yum install -y glibc-devel*
yum install -y libaio-devel*

Sample OHS response file

Create a response for installing OHS (Collocated HTTP Server) in silent mode. You can modify the ORACLE_HOME as per your environment setup.
[ENGINE]

#DO NOT CHANGE THIS.
Response File Version=1.0.0.0.0

[GENERIC]

#The oracle home location. This can be an existing Oracle Home or a new Oracle Home
ORACLE_HOME=/home/oracle/products/12.2.1/Oracle_Home

#Set this variable value to the Installation Type selected. e.g. Fusion Middleware Infrastructure, Fusion Middleware Infrastructure With Examples.
INSTALL_TYPE=Collocated HTTP Server (Managed through WebLogic server)

#Provide the My Oracle Support Username. If you wish to ignore Oracle Configuration Manager configuration provide empty string for user name.
MYORACLESUPPORT_USERNAME=

#Provide the My Oracle Support Password
MYORACLESUPPORT_PASSWORD=

#Set this to true if you wish to decline the security updates. Setting this to true and providing empty string for My Oracle Support username will ignore the Oracle Configuration Manager configuration
DECLINE_SECURITY_UPDATES=true

#Set this to true if My Oracle Support Password is specified
SECURITY_UPDATES_VIA_MYORACLESUPPORT=false

#Provide the Proxy Host
PROXY_HOST=

#Provide the Proxy Port
PROXY_PORT=

#Provide the Proxy Username
PROXY_USER=

#Provide the Proxy Password
PROXY_PWD=

#Type String (URL format) Indicates the OCM Repeater URL which should be of the format [scheme[Http/Https]]://[repeater host]:[repeater port]
COLLECTOR_SUPPORTHUB_URL=

Note: Please ignore last line that contains closing secure line

Standalone OHS Response file for silent mode installation


Thanks to Friend Francesco Rizzo, who reviewed the blog and provided his valuable feedback to add the standalone OHS installation can be included in as follows:
[ENGINE]

#DO NOT CHANGE THIS.
Response File Version=1.0.0.0.0

[GENERIC]

#Set this to true if you wish to skip software updates
DECLINE_AUTO_UPDATES=true

#My Oracle Support User Name
MOS_USERNAME=

#My Oracle Support Password
MOS_PASSWORD=

#If the Software updates are already downloaded and available on your local system, then specify the path to the directory where these patches are available and set SPECIFY_DOWNLOAD_LOCATION to true
AUTO_UPDATES_LOCATION=

#Proxy Server Name to connect to My Oracle Support
SOFTWARE_UPDATES_PROXY_SERVER=

#Proxy Server Port
SOFTWARE_UPDATES_PROXY_PORT=

#Proxy Server Username
SOFTWARE_UPDATES_PROXY_USER=

#Proxy Server Password
SOFTWARE_UPDATES_PROXY_PASSWORD=

#The oracle home location. This can be an existing Oracle Home or a new Oracle Home
ORACLE_HOME=/u02/oracle/products/fmw

#Set this variable value to the Installation Type selected as either Standalone HTTP Server (Managed independently of WebLogic server) OR Collocated HTTP Server (Managed through WebLogic server)
INSTALL_TYPE=Standalone HTTP Server (Managed independently of WebLogic server)

#Provide the My Oracle Support Username. If you wish to ignore Oracle Configuration Manager configuration provide empty string for user name.
MYORACLESUPPORT_USERNAME=

#Provide the My Oracle Support Password
MYORACLESUPPORT_PASSWORD=

#Set this to true if you wish to decline the security updates. Setting this to true and providing empty string for My Oracle Support username will ignore the Oracle Configuration Manager configuration
DECLINE_SECURITY_UPDATES=true

#Set this to true if My Oracle Support Password is specified
SECURITY_UPDATES_VIA_MYORACLESUPPORT=false

#Provide the Proxy Host
PROXY_HOST=

#Provide the Proxy Port
PROXY_PORT=

#Provide the Proxy Username
PROXY_USER=

#Provide the Proxy Password
PROXY_PWD=

#Type String (URL format) Indicates the OCM Repeater URL which should be of the format [scheme[Http/Https]]://[repeater host]:[repeater port]
COLLECTOR_SUPPORTHUB_URL=

Now lets run this...

OHS 12c Silent mode installation command

Finally run the below command with arguments as -silent and responseFile which is created in the above step also provide the inventory location which used for FMW products used earlier to install OHS
./fmw_12.2.1.0.0_ohs_linux64.bin  -silent \
-responseFile /home/oracle/silent/ohsinstall.rsp \
-invPtrLoc /home/oracle/silent/oraInst.loc

[oracle@localhost ~]$ ./fmw_12.2.1.0.0_ohs_linux64.bin  -silent \
-responseFile /home/oracle/silent/ohsinstall.rsp \
-invPtrLoc /home/oracle/silent/oraInst.loc
