Rewrite in Apache does not work anymore

Installed an Apache on Suse Linux 10. Configured httpd.conf including a rewrite rule in a virtual host. No configuration errors, but it did not work at all! After a while I discovered that the mod-rewrite module had been installed, but not enabled with this version of Apache (2.2.x).

While migrating discoverer sso-connections, ‘ssomig’ hangs

Helped a collegae who was migrating a discoverer configuration to another node with a different version (from 10.1.2 to 10.1.4) with now a 10.2 – infrastructure database in a separate home. The OID-users were already successfully migrated, with a little help of the example-script here, but one of the problems was that discoverer didn’t use the single-sign on. The other was that the private and public connection users had made, had disappeared.

Logrotating of files like default-web-access.log with help of Linux

What to do about the ever growing files on Oracle application server as: - default-web-access.log - server.log and more.. These files are not logrotated (OAS < 10.1.3 ) and cannot always be deleted or renamed manually on a 'normal' way, and it must be scripted to avoid extraordinary large log-files. Quite annoying, until Frits Hoogland pointed me to a standard Linux-functionality, 'logrotate'.

Adding a true-type font to Reports Services while running Reports deployed on the web

Problem: A report, designed for generating PDF with the true-type font Univers in it, does not work while deployed on the web, and uses other fonts instead. Cause: there’s no Univers installed in the Reports Services on Unix. Solution: install the font and configure the Reports Service!  Sounds simple… In the process of figuring this

The curious case of the left-handed mouse in webforms

In OAS (, webforms, when using a left-handed mouse to expand a menu, the tree node is not expanding. No error is given. For example, in 'Material Workbench' select the '+' to expand 'Organizations' in the menu. Left and right button does not do anything. Also, the left handed users are having difficulties in moving

Create virtual host with Webcache on OAS

Creating Virtual Host with Webcache and HTTP-server. Not that high-tech, but takes quite a lot of small steps, and must be done without taking risks in a production environment. I did this with Enterprise Manager, while I did not completely rely on my abilities on updating the $ORACLE_HOME/webcache/webcache.xml ..... , and eventually I had to hand it over to the production-DBA.

Signing jar-files

A project is using Sferyx in Webforms, and the file HTMLEditorLight.jar is used. But 'copy and paste' from outside the form to the editor is not working. Cause: the jar-file need to be signed. To sign a jar-file the tools 'keytool' and 'jarsigner' is needed. But... why not use a script from e.g. webutil: With a few adjustments it's a quite common, usable script.
