Solving IHS Not Starting Issue

IBM HTTP Server

usually after a fresh installation we face issues while starting IBM HTP server regarding access of admin username provided in httpd configuration in WAS Admin Console. To solve this kind of ihs not starting issues  we need to add the username provided in IBM IHS in WAS Admin console to let the access to httpd.conf by the admin server adminctl. below are the steps which can be followed to achieve the same:

bash-2.05# su -
Sun Microsystems Inc.   SunOS 5.9       Generic May 2002

bash-2.05# cd /opt/IBM/HTTPServer/bin
bash-2.05# groupadd admin
bash-2.05# useradd -g admin admin
bash-2.05# ./htpasswd ../conf/admin.passwd admin

bash-2.05# ./setupadm -usr admin -grp admin -cfg ../conf/httpd.conf -adm ../conf/admin.conf
