Installing HP-UX Internet Express A.17.00

To install HP-UX Internet Express A.17.00, complete the following steps:

  1. If you have the previous version of HP-UX Internet Express OpenLDAP, MySQL, or PostgreSQL, read Upgrading to the latest version of HP-UX Internet Express OpenLDAP, Upgrading to the latest version of HP-UX Internet Express MySQL, and Upgrading to the latest version of HP-UX Internet Express PostgreSQL. If you do not have previous versions of HP-UX Internet Express OpenLDAP, MySQL, or PostgreSQL, go to Step 2.
  2. To ensure that your system is ready for installing HP-UX Internet Express A.17.00, read the System requirements section.
  3. Download HP-UX Internet Express A.17.00 from this page:
    1. Select Receive for Free>> at the bottom right of this page.
    2. Select the appropriate HP-UX Internet Express A.17.00 bundle or component from the software specification list.

      <depot-name> specifies the bundle name or the component name.

NOTE: The Xalan-C component depends on the Xerces-C component. The Xalan-C installation fails if it is installed before installing Xerces-C. If you are installing Xalan-C from a CD or a bundle from http://www.software.hp.com/, this dependency is automatically resolved. If you are installing the components individually, you must install the Xerces-C component before installing the Xalan-C component.



NOTE: The tripwire component is dependent on the HP PHSS_28871 patch bundle. Install PHSS_28871 before installing or using tripwire.
