cd apache2/conf
cp httpd.conf httpd.conf_original

(ServerRoot is the path to the server's configuration, error and log files.It is possible to change this path, provided all the necessary files are copiedto the new location accordingly)
Listen IPAddress:Port (Ex: Listen
LoadModule weblogic_module modules/
User wlusername
#main content of wl application details to update in httpd.conf file
Open tag of IfModule
#keep the info in open tag of IfModule ---mod_weblogic.c
WebLogicCluster hostname:9902,hostnamevir1:9902
