Important Notes about Linux Installations

Before running your installation of Sun Chili!Soft ASP 3.6.2 for Linux, review the following information:

   If you chose the default configuration for the Administration Console, the username is configured as "admin" and the password as "root." To protect the security of your server, it is strongly recommended that you change the username and password as soon as possible. For more information, see "Configuring Usernames and Passwords" in "Chapter 3: Managing Sun Chili!Soft ASP."

   You use the Administration Console to start and stop the Sun Chili!Soft ASP Server and to change configuration settings. You can access the Administration Console by typing the following URL in your Web browser address bar:


where [HOSTNAME] is the valid DNS name or IP address of the Apache Web server running the Sun Chili!Soft ASP Administration Console, and [PORT] is the port on which the Administration Console is configured to run (5100 by default). The URL for accessing the Administration Console is provided in the following file:


where [C-ASP_INSTALL_DIR] is the directory in which you installed Sun Chili!Soft ASP (/opt/casp by default).

   If you chose not to configure a Web server to run with Sun Chili!Soft ASP during installation, the first time you open the Administration Console you will be prompted to install a Web server.

   The Sun Chili!Soft ASP setup program makes certain changes to the configuration files for the associated Web server. For more information, see "Changes to Web Server Configuration Files" in this chapter.

   Following installation, you can change some of the options that were configured during installation, such as the Web server with which Sun Chili!Soft ASP is configured to run, and the status of Java support (enabled or disabled). For more information, see "Changing Installation Options after Installation" in this chapter.

   To use Chili!Beans, a Java runtime environment (JRE) must be installed on the machine, and Chili!Beans must be enabled from the Administration Console (JRE 1.3.1 is included with Sun Chili!Soft ASP 3.6.2 and is the recommended version). If you did not install a JRE during the installation of Sun Chili!Soft ASP, you can do so by following the instructions in "Enabling Java Support" in this chapter.

   When finished installing Sun Chili!Soft ASP 3.6.2, use the diagnostic applications to verify that your installation is functioning correctly. You can access the diagnostics from the following URL:


where [HOSTNAME] is the hostname of the Web server configured to run with Sun Chili!Soft ASP.

   Important summary information about the installation is located in the following file:


where [C-ASP_INSTALL_DIR] is the directory in which you installed Sun Chili!Soft ASP (/opt/casp by default).

Be sure to print this information for future reference.


With Sun Chili!Soft ASP for Linux on Zeus, you must access your Web server by using the "server address" specified in the Zeus Administration Console, rather than the address specified in the install_summary file.

   Certain Sun Chili!Soft ASP 3.6.2 settings have important implications for the security of the Sun Chili!Soft ASP Server. See "Securing the Server" in "Chapter 3: Managing Sun Chili!Soft ASP" to ensure that the settings are appropriately configured for your specific environment.
