WAS/IBM HTTP Server Installation on Solaris

I have this task :

Install IBM HTTP Server on a Solaris machine. This machine already has WAS installed.
After this i need to deploy an application on it.

1. How do i find out that WAS application server is installed on this machine (properly) ?
2. How do i install IBM HTTP Server on this machine ?
I have been given the following file for installing IBM HTTP Server : WAS_Plugin_09-03-2003_5.0.X_cumulative_Fix_Sun.jar
Somehow it doesn't look like the one that is for IBM HTTP Server installtion. I am not sure.

I am new to Webshpere, but familiar with Weblogic and unix to some extent.

Thanks

Hi,
Hope this helps.
1.goto the appserver bin directory and run the ./startupServer.sh or similar script. If the server starts up with out any errors, It is installed right.
2.I got this from IBM Website, it might help you.
IHS 1.3.19 is installed as the default Web server if you select it while installing WebSphere 4.0.1 from the installation CD. You can then upgrade IHS by applying the appropriate level of WebSphere fixpack from the Web site--to IHS 1.3.19.5, for example, with WebSphere PTF6. If you want the IHS 2.0 Web Server and plug-in for WebSphere 4.0.x, however, you must first download and install IHS 2.0 Web Server from the Web site and then configure the plug-in. -
IHS 2.0 from the IBM HTTP Server Download Web site, go to
http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/download/product.jsp?s=c&cat=ad&type=&id=JHON-4GLTU3

We have WAS 406 running with iPlanet in Sun box.
let me know,
Thanks,
Raja
