How to survival guide Content Server 7.5 / KPro

0 Kudos

Dear Experts,

I am a bloody beginner with the SAP Content Server software.
The installation with SWPM was a breeze:

1) Install the Content Server software
2) Install the MaxDB database

And now the pain started:

1) Invoking the test URL:


renders 500 Internal Server Error


Here they advise to start the configuration by launching the following URL:


However, this first opens a login dialog and I've no clue and can't find any hint on how to login here 😞
The OS user <SID>adm is not accepted 😞

3) I have seen that in the work directory in the logs, there are some TLS and certificate errors. Probably this
is why HTTPS is not working. As I did not choose to activate HTTP during the installation, I decided to do it
manually, by setting manually in the profile:

icm/server_port_1 = prot=http, port=1090

and restarted the CS instance, however when opening


it still renders 500 Internal Server Error 😞

Please kindly advise on how to tackle this. Any URL to any Administration Guide would be warmly welcome too, as
I was unable to encounter any official administration documentation URL / PDF 😞

Many thanks in advance!

Update 1:

Login issue solved. Login is possible with <SID>adm, but it was failing due to incorrect password.

The 500 Internal Server error keeps persisting

Another problem is that I am not sure if Content Server can communicate with the MaxDB database.
Please advise how to check on that and / or provide some guide for connecting the Content Server to a
MaxDB database.
