Regenerating plugin configuration file

The plug-in configuration file (i.e. plugin-cfg.xml), has information on how to route a request from browser to the correct application on the application server. So you will have to regenerate this file in case of there is any changes in websphere application server that affects how the request is routed from the web server to the application server.

The plugin-cfg.xml should be regenerated in following situations

  • Installing or removing application

  • Creating or changing virtual host

  • Creating or changing cluster

  • Creating a new server

  • Modifying HTTP transport settings

You can manually regenerate plugin using either the GetPluginCfg command, or using the WAS Admin console, or you can also setup the plug-in properties of the web server to enable automatic generation of the file, whenever relevant changes are made
