2.5 Installing Host Publisher Server
In this section, we show you the Host Publisher Server installation for the
Windows NT system. The Host Publisher installation process does not include a
Web Server and does not support installation of one after Host Publisher and
WebSphere are installed. Therefore, be sure to install one of the Web servers
supported by WebSphere Applications Server (WAS). In the rest of this section,
we assume that WAS has been properly installed.
Important: WebSphere Application Server 3.5 must be active for the Host
Publisher installation and configuration to be successful.
Chapter 2. Installation 43
Start the installation with the setupwin command from the Host Publisher Server
CD-ROM (see Figure 2-5).
