Some points to consider for Installation of WP 6.0 on Windows XP


Hardware and OS Requirements:

DISK SPACE: Disk space for WP (This includes the REQUIRED Websphere application server and Cloudscape) : 3.9GB Disk space for temp folder : 1.5GB

RAM: It WILL run on 1GB RAM... slowly. IBM Recommends 4GB RAM for a production system.

SWAP FILE: Double your RAM

NETWORK: Obviously WP requires an IP address. Try not to change this after installation. Although WP is ok with changing IP addresses... it can cause you headaches.

NAME: WP server REQUIRES a fully qualified name for the install. For example, I will be using http://portal.demo.local for the SNTT posts. DO NOT change the name of the WP server after install. It most definately does not like that.

PLATFORM: WP will run on Win2k server (SP4) or 2003 server (32bit only supported). Bear in mind that WP will run on XP SP1 or SP2. This is not supported for production though.
