Novell GroupWise 7
Novell Open Enterprise Server (Linux based)


Login in WebAccess "http:///gw/webacc" will return a 404 Error: Object Not Found.   


The problem is that the "gw.conf" configuration is not present in the "/etc/opt/novell/httpd/sslconf.d" directory.
To correct this, enter the following command with required security rights to the server.

cp -s /etc/opt/novell/gw/gw.conf /etc/opt/novell/httpd/sslconf.d

This will create a symbolic link in the "sslconf.d" directory to the gw.conf file located in the "/etc/opt/novell/gw/" directory.

Additional Information

This solution was tested with GroupWise 7 Webaccess, Apache 2, Open Enterprise Server Linux, and SUSE Linux 9.0.

By the way - if you want to disable http and only allow https (SSL) access, you can remove the symbolic link from the /etc/apache2/conf.d file.

These changes effectively add or remove the location of the "JkMount" statements from the "httpd.conf" file.
