Preparation and prerequisites

Before we start with the WebSphere Application Server installation, we need to ensure the correct installation media is available and that the operating system prerequisites have been met.

It is also important to ensure that there is enough free disk space on your filesystem, and that you also have a large enough folder or /tmp, c:/temp for Windows. A recommended size for the tmp folder is 1 Gigabyte; this will also cater for the deployment of large JEE applications. The installer program checks for required space before calling the WAS installation wizard and will inform you if there is not enough disk space; however, it is good to be prepared upfront to minimize such issues.


It is recommended best practice that you refer to the IBM documentation for installation prerequisites, which can be found at the following URL:
