Appendix E. Text-based Portal installation on Solaris 715
E.1 Installing and configuring WebSphere Application
Server and WebSphere Portal in text mode
The WebSphere Portal installation program provides an option (-console) for the
text environment. People can use this option to install interactively.
Here are the steps we used to install WebSphere Application Server and
WebSphere Portal in the Solaris environment. These steps could replace the
steps we introduced in 8.4.3, “Installing WebSphere Portal” on page 366,
supposing we had finished the work in sections 8.4.1, “WebSphere components”
on page 365 and 8.4.2, “Preparation for the installation” on page 365. Perform
the following steps:
1. Log in as root on machine 2.
2. Change the working directory
# cd /wpsdis/setup
3. Start the installation with the option -console.
# /wpsdisk/setup/install.sh -console
