WAS – remove maximo from context path

You can make your base web address to http://hostname/ instead of http://hostname/maximo using IBM HTTP server configuration, without restarting Maximo.

1. Open the WAS console–>Servers–>WebServers –>webserver1 .

2. Click the Edit button next to the httpd.conf file to edit the configuration file of the webserver.

3. Enable mod rewrite

Remove # in the line: LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.mod
With removing # you enable this rewrite module.

4. Add the following at the end of the file config file:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} ^80$
RewriteRule ^/$ /maximo/ [R=301,L]

5. Generate plugin, Propagate plugin and restart server.

Try now the address: http://hostname/ , and your Maximo login screen will welcome you.
