Pre-Installation Planning
Minimum Requirements
1. The WOW for GeoFrame software requires a fully configured WOW version
R2003.3.1.5 instance. Click on ‘About’ on the WOW top bar menu to see your current
WOW version. If not currently on WOW version R2003.3.1.5, please install WOW
and/or upgrade to this version before proceeding. The latest WOW software can be
obtained from the Landmark ftp server isite.lgc.com. Contact your customer
support representative for login details and WOW installation instructions.
2. WOW for GeoFrame runs under Solaris only, i.e. the WOW server must be installed
on a Solaris system.
3. The WOW server must be configured as a standard GeoFrame 4.0.4 Solaris client,
i.e. it should be possible to launch GeoFrame applications, browse data etc.
4. GeoFrame version must be 4.0.4 or 4.0.4.1. WOW for GeoFrame is not guaranteed to
work against earlier versions, e.g. 4.0.3.
5. The WOW Apache user must be granted read access to those GeoFrame projects
which are required to be viewed through WOW. Read-only access is sufficient, since
WOW for GeoFrame performs no write operations.
Licensing
Regular FlexLM licensing is used with a feature name of ‘WOWGF’. The product
simulates a typical user session using the FlexLM ‘linger’ function. Whenever a user clicks
on a link in WOW for GeoFrame, the license is refreshed for a further 20 minutes. The
license is checked back in after 20 minutes of inactivity.
See your R2003 installation instructions and Release Notes for how to install licenses,
and/or email license@lgc.com to obtain a valid license key.

Installation
Extracting Media
WOW for GeoFrame is included in the WebApps R2003.3.1.5 patch. The simplest
installation is to upgrade WOW for R2003.3.1.5, then run the WOW for GeoFrame
installation script as described below. Although not recommended, WOW for Geolog
media in the R2003.3.1.4 environment are available from isite.lgc.com or from CD.
The notes below describe the installation steps required:

Login to the WOW server as the WOW/Apache user.

Source the Landmark environment if not done by default:
source $OWHOME/templates/.lgclogin

Extract the media, if not already running WOW R2003.3.1.5:
cd $OWHOME/WebApps
gzip –dc /path/WebApps_2003.3.1.5_patch_SUNSV.tar.gz | tar xvf –

Run the installation script as described below:
cd WebApps/install
./GeoFrameInstall –o $OWHOME

Running the GeoFrame Installation Script
You will be prompted for a number of GeoFrame variables. You should be able to get
these from a GeoFrame xterm (launched off the Geonet menu)

GeoFrame GF_PATH directory: This is the root directory of the GeoFrame software
$GF_PATH, e.g. /apps/geoframe/geoframe_404_sun.

GeoFrame TNS_ADMIN directory: This is directory containing the Oracle
tnsnames.ora file, containing an entry pointing to the GeoFrame Oracle instance.

GeoFrame TWO_TASK: This is the GeoFrame Oracle instance name.

GeoFrame default project name: This is the name of any GeoFrame project.

GeoFrame license file: This is the name of the GeoFrame license file. The value
provided is appended to the LM_LICENSE_FILE environmental variable.

During this stage the $OWHOME/WebApps/conf/geoframe.env file is created
containing all the variables required by WOW for GeoFrame. This is the only configuration
file for WOW for GeoFrame; see Appendix 1 for an example. Check this file, as there may
be other GeoFrame parameters that require modification.
To test the installation, attach 'bin/gf.cgi' to your standard WOW URL, e.g.
http://wow.oilco.com/bin/gf.cgi. Once the license is installed, WOW for GeoFrame should
be fully functional.
There is no need to restart Apache as part of the installation.

Adding GeoFrame to the WOW Side Menu
The WOW left side menu is partly customizable. This allows administrators to add extra
links, by modifying a configuration file. See $OWHOME/WebApps/conf/wow_menu.dat
for details.
cd $OWHOME/WebApps/conf
cp wow_menu.dat.default wow_menu.dat
vi wow_menu.dat
add your URL, e.g.: GeoFrame http://wow.oilco.com/bin/gf.cgi
Alternatively, the WOW Apache owner can configure this file through the browser by
clicking on ‘Admin’ on the WOW top menu bar.
