If Apache HTTP Server-Tomcat integration fails, here's how to run iManager (Non-SDK Version) in standalone mode without integrating to Apache HTTP Server.

Update
Please note:

  1. The changes have to be undone for future Apache HTTP Server integration.
  2. PortalServlet.properties file will be generated after Configuration only. If the Custom_Backend_Renderer_Portal_Location property is not there, add it.
  1. Configure iManager for Non-SSL operation by commenting out the security-constraint section in $TOMCAT_HOME\webapps\nps\WEB_INF\web.xml. This section is the last section in web.xml.
  2. Edit 'Custom_Backend_Renderer_Portal_Location' property in $TOMCAT_HOME\webapps\nps\WEB_INF\PortalServlet.properties to include portnumber 8080 in URL.

EXAMPLE

Step 1

<!--
 <security-constraint>^M
                <web-resource-collection>^M
                        <web-resource-name>SSL-requiring Area</web-resource-name>^M
                        <url-pattern>/servlet/*</url-pattern>^M
                </web-resource-collection>^M
                <user-data-constraint>^M
                        <transport-guarantee>CONFIDENTIAL</transport-guarantee>^M
                </user-data-constraint>^M
        </security-constraint> -->^M<,

Step 2

Change

Custom_Backend_Renderer_Portal_Location=http\://127.0.0.1/nps

to

Custom_Backend_Renderer_Portal_Location=http\://127.0.0.1:8080/nps
