|Temporary HTTP Server Installation and Operation|
To provide a temporary web page display while the Strategi system is shut down, the Temporary HTTP Server is a small HTTP server
designed to capture requests to specified HTTP address(es) and to respond with a single web page. This page contains the message:
"This website is temporarily unavailable.", plus a default message of "Server down for maintenance.". You can replace the default
message with a custom message.
The temporary HTTP server components reside in the file SGITMPHTTP within the Strategi library. The following explains how to install the components.
Note: This program is independent of Strategi and is available only with the GA version of Strategi V1R8 or higher. Because it is designed to respond to the same IP address request(s) as the specified Strategi webserver(s), you must shut down the Strategi subsystem before starting this program, and you must shut down this program before restarting Strategi.
If you are running more than one website, you may wish to create a separate utility program to be run as a batch job, where you can hardcode the IP addresses and messages as required.
The recommended method of running the process is via batch job submission using the SBMJOB command. One way to do this is as follows:
Another method by which the RUNTMPHTTP command can be invoked follows. Note that this method will result in the session in use being locked within the program until the session is ended.
Should you have any questions regarding the use of this command, please contact BusinessLink Technical Support.
