A Forum reader recently asked:
"Can someone give me directions on how to load WebAccess 7 in protected memory on a NetWare 6.5 SP5 server?"
And here's the response from Tim Heywood ...
In the strtweb.ncf file, change
load gwinter ...
load address space = gwwa gwinter
Protection restart gwwa
I would normally put the MTA and PO on one server, and then a second MTA and the GWIA and WebAccess on a second. This is based on the need to keep the PO up at all costs, and you know that as soon as something talks to the Internet (WA and GWIA) there will be somebody likely to play around with it.
To check whether WebAccess is in protected memory, all you have to do is type:
You will see the module list and which memory space it is loaded in.
I would load the Apache into protected memory; however, there is the question as to what else this copy of apache is running. Netstorage cannot be loaded into protected memory, for instance.
For Apache, do this:
1. Edit the ap2webup.ncf file.
2. Replace the "load apache2" with "load address space=ap2 apache2"
3. Edit the ap2webdn and replace "load address space = os apache2" with "load address space = ap2 apache2"
